Bananas--Original Still Life Oil Painting

With a snowstorm in progress, I felt like painting something sunny. A bright yellow bunch of bananas caught my eye. Since I prefer still life work with a slightly abstract perspective, I chose not to paint the entire bunch, but just the ends. All those shades of yellow and the bruises on their skin gave me a good little challenge. After it's dry, this painting will be sold in my Etsy Gallery in January or February.
