The Portrait of Mr. Octave by Nip Rogers

Mr.OctavesPortraitDetailLR

Mr. Octave came to me the day after with a pile of bananas he had collected for me from his property, as a gift in return. With the little English words he could think of, he told me how much his wife and kids loved the portrait I did. I spent the next 4 days enjoying those bananas with a very full stomach. When someone gives back from the heart like that.. One of the perks of being an artist. Unfortunately I went through those deliciously organic bananas (he planted and harvested them himself) so fast I didn’t have a chance to take a photo of them. But try to image a bunch of bananas given to you as a precious gift. They tasted better than any you could find at any market.
