Artichoke Halves

Artichoke Halves
I bought  artichokes to cook for dinner and the first one that I cut did not have the pretty purplish red coloring in the center that is usually found there.  So... I cut the second one open and found it to be really beautiful inside.  Since I had just gotten this pretty new table-runner from IKEA, I decided it would be the background and I set it up in my new shadow box. I am getting much better shadows this way.

  1. love the color palette in this....very pretty!

    1. I am trying to work my way back to using brighter colors, which I used to do and I have gotten more subdued lately. I love hearing from you, Dottie, thanks for commenting.

  2. Nice, nice nice! I love the pink and the echo of it in the artichokes. Lovely painting.
