Thompsonís Station , TN    USA

Width: 7"   Length: 9.5"

Materials/Techniques: Metallic Lumiere Paint; Fusible interfacing.

Artist's Statement: Relatives of the common thistle, the artichoke represents a tender heart protected by strong leathery petals and prickly leaves. The Artful Artichoke was inspired by my other hobby gardening as well as the glowing chiaroscuro effect of the Old Masters.
