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.
