Midnight Snack--Original Still Life Oil Painting--Bananas

Painting on black gessoed panels makes it much easier to create a painting with a dark background. I like the effects created with the dark background. It puts the focus directly on the subject without distraction. This oil painting is 5x7 inches on a black hardboard panel and is for sale at Small Impressions Gallery for $50.00 plus $6.50 for shipping to US addresses. The panel is 1/4 inch thick, sealed on the back with several coats of acrylic paint, and will last a life time. It will fit easily into a standard frame or might be propped up on a small table-top easel. It will make a nice companion to some of my other small still life paintings.

Nice simplicity in this. That yellow looks so great on the black and I like the crop.
