Winter squash 2

I had painted this squash once before, and in the meantime, since I hadn't eaten it (I'm not a big fan of winter squash), it obliged me by turning from mostly dark green to this marvelous color. I'm not sure if that means it can't be eaten anymore, but it is gorgeous to look at.

This was a really frustrating painting. I kept re-doing stuff, and it got later and later, and pretty soon I had spent 3 hours on it and was hungry and tired and utterly sick of it all. I had actually decided to do some blending for a change, not sure yet how I feel about that either. Anyway, I'm really glad it's done.

I think it's still edible, if one liked them. I love the orange and blue.
