Delicata Squash

Delicata Squash - oil

6″ x 8″ oil on canvas

Leave it to me to make a harmless little squash look like a Halloween fiend. I didn’t intend it but this seems to have a dark slightly macabre feel to it. It’s me not the squash.

I’ll have to speak to my therapist about this.

I went a week or so without painting and I felt a little rusty on this. I always think, as I set up the still life, “this time I’m just going to crank out a fast one. I think I ought to be able to do one of these in 5 or 6 brush strokes. It probably took me 3 hours to get it to this point.

  1. It is a little “monstery” looking. If that means you need therapy, I must, too, ’cause I like it. Doesn’t look like you were rusty at all. Good work.


  2. I thought this was a real squash oil that can be used in many purposes, but it the fact is it is a painting that uses oil, probably oil pastel or any painting tools. but I would ask if you have any information about this product, if it could be possible or feasible to be created… I am giving you the idea, and if possible, i would like to ask the process on making this kind of product… thats all and thank you! it is a beautiful painting.


  3. Micahel,

    I’m sorry to have lured you hear with my misleading title. I’ve never heard of squash oil and I’m not sure what one would do with it. I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful.

    I’m glad you like the painting. Good luck with your search.
