When Artichokes Dream


I remember painting this many years ago. I had a large, square panel prepared in my studio and for some reason chose it as the support for the artichoke. I painted it dead center and had begun some suggestions for the background. I’d been painting it for quite a while and at the end of one day I went home and laid down to rest. I still had my jacket on and I’ll never forget, when I closed my eyes I saw the finished painting with the eggs floating in the sky. I completed it in the next few days and the title arose.
