Artichoke Half by Kristine Kainer

16 x 20

What does one do with excess paint on one's palette?  Use it in a colorful way, of course!

One of my favorite vegetables is the artichoke.  Whenever I've cut one in half, I've always been awed by the amazing formations within--the leaves, the choke, and the delicate heart--all nestled along a vertical axis.  It is truly stunning.  Thus, this painting attempts to celebrate the innate beauty of this delicious thistle in a vibrant way.  Mmmmmmmmmm.
