I got a bunch of little squashes and started drawing them. I've got a few done, and want to do some more, it's a nice activity to do once in a while, basic still life studies. And squashes have the most wonderful stripes, patches, textures, and subtle variations of colour, not to mention the maddest of shapes. And you can eat them afterwards (if they're still good). Red Kuris are delicious in a risotto with spinach and pine nuts.
