Artist Karen Bonaker created this painting of an artichoke from scratch using John's Artists' Brushes for Adobe Photoshop CS5. Karen commented, "I enjoy these brushes so much and look forward to playing with them."

Karen and I are both former residents of the Santa Cruz area, which is nearby Watsonville and Castroville—both known for their artichoke crop. We both commiserated how much we miss the local fresh artichokes available there. If you've never had steamed artichokes, you are missing a definite treat!

John's Artists' Brushes for Photoshop CS5 are now available at an introductory price of $19.95. If you have Photoshop CS5 and are into painting, this will be the best investment you can make!

  1. I lived the first 50 years of my life in southern California and along with avacados artichokes were a staple in our house. I love them.
    Beautiful painting Karen.


  2. Super work !! love it Karen!! I purchased John's brushes a couple days ago and really am impressed by the way he has organized the program. With brushes, texture, action and turorials, it is exciting to work with.
