The Forgotten Banana

5 x 7 inches, oil on board.
$80
A banana, caught in the glare of a lamp at night, seems to be asking the question "Is this all there is?"

And I seem to be thinking in response "Would Kay notice if I whittled another thin section out of that berry pie?"

And somewhere out in the forests of Oregon, a small bear is picking up a scent, reaching for his cell phone, and wondering how much fuel is left in the Lear jet.

My bananas always reach this condition before I start to consume them. This could be the last banana you see, since this fruit is a threatened species. So, eat'em up fast TED!

Are bananas really an endangered species? I had no idea.

Yes it is true. A friend of mine at the institute told me there was an article about the end of the banana in a recent New Scientist article.

I can't imagine life without bananas! Boy, that is depressing. Perhaps with global warming I will be able to grow bananas here in New York, provided the sea level doesn't rise too much. It has been hot and muggy here all week, and although it finally started raining yesterday there is no end in sight to the humidity. It feels like a tropical rainforest.
