Bananas Ouro, 9×12″, watercolor on 140 # watercolor paper
Here is a tribute to the Gold Banana. It is less than 4″ long, it’s sweet and nutty and irresistible . The last bunch looked like a spikey headdress when arranged just so, sculptural and all realistically abstract. I had to paint them. Now all that remains of the bunch is a sweet memory and this full-size painting.
Sweet memories is what I paint and why I do it….they will be all that is left when I cease to remain .
