Artichoke stalemate

Last week I started to put in geometric shapes as a background for my artichokes and now I'm at a stalemate with the painting. I think other painters experience this from time to time, I hope I'm not alone. Also, being limited in time with lots of family activities the past couple of weeks has made it difficult to even think of what to do next. Things should settle down so that I can study it and decide how I should proceed. In the meantime, I relaxed and painted some little flower paintings for birthday cards.Those I will post in the next couple of days.


  1. I think its coming along so well,, Sometimes I find when I just get to that point that maybe, just maybe 'its finished?' I really like it now matter what.

  2. Well- I really, really like that geometric background! It looks wonderful. I've certainly heard other painters say they experience the same thing and I'm sure you'll figure out what you want.
    Despite your many family activities, I appreciate that you are still able to share your work here. You paint beautifully and with such elegance.

  3. Thanks for those comments, maybe I am done! Quick, order a frame!
