Charcoal Still Life Quarter Wedge Squash

A charcoal still life of a squash, with a quarter cut out and a wedge sliced off to reveal the rich flesh and seeds within.  Vegetables are a popular subject for still life works, right up there with flowers.  I did a little research into still lifes, and discovered this was an art category that women play a prominent role even back into Renaissance time.

The original is roughly 12 by 9 inches (23 cm by 31 cm, made in France), on 100% cotton paper, with a coat of fixative, and available.  It is currently on display at El Amigo Restaurant in Crescent City, Florida. If you live outside the area, you can purchase the original through Daily PaintWorks and have it shipped to you. Prints are available at my Pixels store, and accessories and more styles of prints are at my RedBubble store. (links open in new tab/window)
