Why Draw A Squash?

Why would anyone draw a single squash?  Because it was there, of course.  There need be no other reason.  And so it was as the squash sat on our kitchen island and I drew it.  This one was odd-looking in that while most Sunburst squashes are round, but flattened, this one was almost as high as it was round.

If I were Charlie O’Shields (Mr. Doodlewash) I’d have a charming story to tell you about how Philippe prepares squash or how his mother forced him to eat it when he was young.  I’m not nearly as talented.  I buy squash, I cook squash, I eat squash and now I can say I’ve sketched squash.  Anyway, I had fun sketching it.

  1. I eat a lot of squash, too… but I’ve never tried one of these! I will next time I see one at the store… but wait! It can’t be fall yet! Noooo!

    • I don’t know if the name is ‘real’ or not but we used to call these round, flat squash ‘summer squash.’ Here in Quebec City, August is the best of summer.
