1995 pen & ink and watercolor - 16 x 20
The celebration of the harvest, of life and fertility is symbolically represented in this scene by the varieties of squash. Personally this was done during a major life transition (represented in the floating aspect) after I lost my first pregnancy ( represented in the shapes of the vegetables and the ladies encircling them). I also think of this as my fertility drawing. It inspired a series of whimsical imaginative illustrations which I may someday put together in a children's book.
