Beneath the stem

0.00

This piece is done on 14 x 17 100lb. bristol paper in acrylic paint and colored pencils.

I developed this piece after I did some studies of artichokes. I am fascinated by the change of surfaces in organic matter. What started out as a drawing, become a painting as I started to change the color each time the leaves curved in and out. The texture was added on top with colored pencil because I thought this would also add to the concept of the piece. 

Because this is a medium sized piece, I would recommend including it in a gallery wall, in a guest room, an office or above a nightstand.
