Banana and Peanut Seller, oil on panel, 12″ x 9″
Keeping with the banana theme, this time an oil. This sweet older lady and her daughter sold only bananas and peanuts in the shell at a corner stall in the Soho area of Hong Kong. She weighed your bananas on an old fashioned counter weight scale. One of my favorite past times while living in Hong Kong was wondering the many outdoor markets. The colors and all the fantastic asian fruits and vegetables were such an inspiration. However, the seafood and meat sections were not for the squeamish!
