Purple Artichokes

Purple Artichokes 15x22, framed to 22x28

So, it's finally declared finished! I don't think I've ever procrastinated as long on any painting as I have on this one. I have signed it and framed it so I will have to stop puttering with it. The photo doesn't show the greens off very well, but it's pretty close with everything else.

Perhaps now that I'm at home in my little home studio I will be more regular with painting and posting. It seems like the summers in Minnesota throw me off the painting schedule. I find it difficult to paint consistently when there is a lot of activity going on around me. Does everyone have that problem? Has anyone found a way to shut out the activities around you and still paint? What works for you?

  1. Well, this is simply gorgeous! I love the depth you've achieved.
    When a lot is happening around me, my creative output suffers. On some level, creating is an isolating and at times selfish endeavor. It's a balancing act after all.
    Even with your busy days, you've produced beautiful work!
