Bananas

Back in the philippines, in the city where i grew-up, there's a lot of banana plantations.... Farmers often harvested their crops while they're still green, it will then undergo a forced ripening process inside a Nipa shed before hitting the market when the fruits had already ripened....

This is a very common practice amongs farmers and is being handed down from generation to generation.... They believe that forced ripening method brings out the natural flavour and sweetness of the fruit.... Well, there's nothing wrong believing that myth but nowadays we never worry about that anymore.... Just leave it all to the genetic-science ha-ha....! This is a 91cm x 91cm oil on canvas....

Thanks again Vicki, personal collections ko sya pero can be for sale too kung may bibili.... At the moment ay hindi ko alam ang value nyan pero i'm hoping that one day some older artists here will organise a show para sa lahat ng pinoy in australia.... By that time ay baka magkaroon sila ng valuations.... Masyado kasing invisible ang pinoy arts dito.... =)
