This is the one I mentioned that I did early in my recovery from the broken ribs. The one I had so much trouble photographing. This is the photograph I complained so much about. But this is the best photo of the bunch I took, and I figured it's time to show this painting since I talked about it (to some of you by email and by phone). I don't know why this photo is less representative of the painting than the apple photo. They were both photographed in natural light. Maybe it was the time of day? Anyhow, in the interest of full disclosure, here is my painting.
I started a painting of some bananas this weekend, but to be honest, I think I am going to end up eating them before I finish the painting!. They are just not holding my attention like the apple did (and I'm low on bananas). They don't seem to make as interesting a painting as the apple did, I think because the spotlight on them doesn't really create any strong highlights.
