Our Banana Plantation

We actually have quite a few banana and plantain types growing around our yard.  This is a true banana patch with some Red Bananas and some Fingerling types.  Banana leaves are called flags and like any flag they shred in constant winds.  The large leaf in the foreground was fully shredded by the morning after I painted this.  That's alright, there is another new flag growing quickly and the shredding actually helps the plant with its internal distribution of nourishment.  We have several plants in blossom, so I'll painting the flowers and the developing bananas as our Spring progresses.
