Just returned from my 20 year RISD reunion- and needed to just get paint on a brush and work. This artichoke was at whole foods, and I thought it was beautiful! Hard to paint, but the rhythm kicked in and I feel I caught the feeling of it.
Wish I were 18 again and heading off to freshman year- but maybe if I get the MacDowell fellowship, it will sort of feel like that!
