Patty Pan squash is one of my favorite vegetables.  It is only available toward the end of summer and mostly just from farmers markets.  

This painting shows some black grapes in a shiny cup. Oil paint and wax are used in this 6x6" painting.  The paint is applied with a palette knife which gives the paint a texture and the image a slightly indistinct look.  I don't like my paintings where everything is spelled out.  I want some abstraction to bring some mystery to it.
