Squash Blossom Journey-Oil Painting


Squash Blossom Journey
16 x 20
Oil on Canvas


This painting shows the various stages of a zucchini’s life, from flower to baby zucchini with the light pouring through the back of the flower making it the star of the show. The little zucchinis are placed in a tiny, old brass watering can which watered plants for a time, then served as a little pot for a plant outside and now lives out it’s life performing with various subject matter in my still lifes. The composition of this painting differs from some of my others which often have abundant space all around them to give a sense of air and atmosphere that I like so much, but change is good and this time the subject matter is cropped making it a much more intimate painting.

Beautifully painted and lovely composition..... Coincidentally, just moments before opening your email, I was contemplating cooking some with dinner tonight! Now it's definite.
