Botanical Sketches #8 -Artichoke

Here's another sketch done on monoprinted papers (Gelli Prints) using colored pencil and ink.  I drew the artichoke "Cynara Cardunculus". This is another food from my childhood that I loved.  My grandmother would fill the pressure cooker with them, their tops and stems sliced off and stuffed with garlic and Parmesan Cheese.  They were delicious. When I was in college, I didn't have a pressure cooker, so I cooked the in the microwave - still good, just without all the fanfare.
