An Artichoke Gets Graphic
"Stands Alone", oil on canvas, 24" x 24"
Continuing with the exploration of breaking the rules with a white background, today's painting has a graphic feel to it. The almost symmetry, placement of the artichoke, and strong shadow are all elements that were not as intended as you may think, but results I love. I am mostly pleased with them because they are not my typical style. I lean toward softer paintings, more application of paint, and an overall energetic background. However, I think that the simpler white background forces the viewer to pay closer attention to the brush strokes used to create the layers of the artichoke, which are even more energetic than any background I could apply.
