artichoke flowers

I couldn't bring myself to fell the artichokes for eating and one by one they burst into the most amazing purple flowers. They were short lived though and this is the only one I managed to photograph. I'm now wondering if I should make a companion piece to this print...


  1. I really like the artichoke print, the flower would be difficult!!The trickiest painting I've done was a cardoon flower which is very similiar, they are beautiful.

  2. Thank you Anna, it would be a challenge. I might try growing cardoons next year - they make such a statement!
