Squash varieties absolutely fall under the category of “Vegetables That Can Distract Sarah at a Grocery Store”.

Some are knobbly, some are fabulous colours, and all have an architectural elegance to them.

This was one of those decorative squash they sell around Thanksgiving in Canada – varnished and nigh on indestructible, they’re perfect for me and my habit of benign squash neglect.

How could I not paint this one? Knobbly, striped and multicoloured? A veritable feast for the eyes.

This also felt like a breakthrough piece for me – it was a year or so after I’d finished my studies and I was still wrestling with how to get all of this knowledge out of my brain and onto the canvas.

For whatever reason, this little painting flowed out of me in a way that little else had yet. I finished it and thought, “Well whaddya know. I made that.”

Either of these pieces would look fantastic hung next to this one! Whether you want a warmer palette with the persimmon or a cooler green palette with the acorn squash, both would add charm to your breakfast nook or dining area (or anywhere!)
