Choked Up features a toy truck full of "chokes." Throughout the centuries, artichokes have been a favorite subject for artists. The texture and color variations makes them a challenge to paint.
This painting was done using a limited palette, which means all the colors were mixed from just a few tubes of paint. Using a limited number of paints forces an artist to really study the relative color values, temperature and creates color harmony.
In the 16th century artichokes were considered an aphrodisiac!
