Frosted Bananas

"Frosted Bananas"
6" x 6"
Oil on gessoed hardboard
They sat cuddled in this cluster fresh from the produce department; without bruises, blemishes, brown spots or stickers. Every one was a different color, in a different position, yet the same.  I couldn't resist.  

Amazingly, to me at least, this was about a fifteen minute painting.  I managed to get the shadows in, the shapes painted and the background colors down using very few strokes.
Then I took my mop brush and softened the whole thing. My signature is the only hard edged thing on the board.  Right—wrong?  Who knows?  It's an exercise and I enjoyed doing it.

Thanks for bearing with me.
