Sailing the Crystal Sea

Oil on cradled panel, 14 x 11 in.
I found this slice of butternut squash at the Farmer's Market. I liked the U-shape which reminded me of an old-fashioned ship sailing through an imaginary landscape. I love the poem "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" by Eugene Fields which tells the tale of three fishermen who sailed off in a wooden shoe on a river of crystal light into the sea of dew, and that's what inspired the title.
