I finished my Beastie Boys Bananas! The ground is a little more blueish than the image suggests. I took the pic in my studio tonight so the color isn't the best but you can get the idea. By the way, if you're wondering "Beastie Boy Bananas?" see my previous posting for explanation.

Started this last night. It's for a show in L.A. at Gallery 1988 on January 8th 2009. The show is titled "Under the Influence: A tribute to the Beastie Boys". Hmm, you're probably thinking "what the hell does this have to do with the Beastie Boys??!" Here's my idea: I was struggling trying to think of ideas that would represent the B Boys the best the way I could without being too obvious and boring, I'm a big fan you know. Well, one day after work it struck me. Bananas! These guys are straight up bananas! So, I decided to paint a still life (which I love to do anyway) and title it "Bananas Since Birth". That sums it up.
