Almost finished

It's nearly finished in this photograph - actually it's completely done but I won't post the final image until it's professionally photographed.  But, until then here it is in a close to finished state.  The challenge left at this point was to figure out what would be on the pages of the book...  Stay tuned a picture of the completed painting will be posted in a couple weeks or so.

Painting this incredibly abundant bunch of bananas brought up a word most of us don't know or ever use - fecund.  It's a very descriptive word and one which I hope will inspire some new paintings...
