"Artichoke and Lemon" Oil on 6x6 inch board

Artichokes usually show up in the grocery store around this time of year.  I had this one sitting around for a couple of days until I was done with the painting.  It was still good enough to cook and eat.  I make them like my mother,  stuffed with a mixture of bread crumbs and grated romano cheese, and cooked on the stove, in a pan of water, with a bit of olive oil, salt, and a few cloves of garlic floating in it.  It takes over an hour, but it is sooooo goood!  The lemons are useful to keep the cut edges of the leaves from browning, but I don't usually bother with that.  It looks nice for the painting though.  :)
