I really enjoyed painting this new work of three artichokes in three stages of growth as seen in an urban food forest.  It’s my first return to acrylics on canvas in 4 years, and — as seems to happen so often when I switch mediums — the change causes some unexpected and delightful creative things to occur.  I’m quite pleased with the result.  🙂

This painting will be part of my work at the one-night only 4th Annual GROW Forth! art show benefiting Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms here in Austin, happening this Saturday.

More info on the show is available on the Facebook Event page.  I will be showing with five other Austin artists: metal sculptor Anne Woods, photographer and painter Ann Woodall, painter Pat Strong, ceramic artist Michael Merritt, and mixed media artist Stephanie Rubiano.  Come join us!

One of the worst things an artist can do is stagnate into a certain style or genre for life. It’s all about growth, and the growth of the artist should never stop.

  • Nice! I’m getting good associations with my garden and vegetables hidden under leaves in the summer heat.
