artichoke garlic

I received a kitchen bridal shower invitation that requested a recipe for the newlyweds. Since I love gumbo, and love Alton Brown’s foolproof oven-roux, I sent his Shrimp Gumbo recipe. Of course, I couldn’t just send it bare and ordinary. So after spicing it up with a little Word Art and Clip art, I decided to create an original digital art piece using Gumbo as the theme. I love to paint pictures of different vegetables, so this is a natural segue. I am working on the piece now, but since an artist blog needs art with each post, enjoy my artichoke painting. Artichokes are my favorite food.
