Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Bananes, Moselle Market, New Caledonia

This piece brings back many happy memories. It was painted from a photo I took at the beautiful open air Moselle Market in New Caledonia. This Market smells wonderful of French baguettes, with exotic fruit piled high on tables.

Bananes de Poingo Ouegoa, an Islander named Dominique told me, are a type of banana called plantains. They are a starchy fruit which Dominique uses in her famous banana beignets which are like heavenly banana doughnuts, fried in safflower oil and powdered with fine sugar. I remember her being so happy as she waves to a friend passing by and drops banana-filled into the frypan.

This painting was done with a bristly brush and creamy oil paint. I do wish I could go back to New Caledonia, it is a beautiful Island. I wonder whether Dominique is still selling her Bananes and frying her banana beignets.

This painting is ready to hang, if preferred I can get it custom framed for an additional $150.
