Butternut Squash (May 2014) original oil painting still life on box canvas varnished

This is an original oil painting of a butternut squash, painted onto a box canvas, varnished and ready to hang. This still life was painted over a couple of sittings, allowing me to work on bringing out the detail and the form of the squash, giving it a swirling, almost cosmic background. The result is a small but rich piece of art, realistic yet oddly fantastical - I keep thinking it looks like some alien tanker ship in a nebula surrounded by swirling interstellar gases. That might just be me though!

This painting is on a box canvas, which means it's ready to hang as it is - no framing required. A protective gloss varnish has been applied, giving a gorgeous glossy shine to this painting, and the artwork is signed and dated by the artist.

Oil paints on box canvas, gloss varnish, 15cm x 15cm x 1.5cm (6" x 6" x 0.6")
