Here's another Odd Couple, a variant on one posted last summer. This is a commissioned piece, not for sale.

I like the odd couple idea. This is clever and beautifully executed!

Hi Rahina--I think the banana and rope go together too, in a curious way, but I can't figure out why. Anyway, I'm glad it worked for you--thanks a lot.

Thanks, Cathyann.

just beautiful. the rope makes me think of the boats that bring bananas to us...

Don, I like this one. The pairing is great.

Don Gray said...

You know, that's what I thought of too, Martha. I thought of Belafonte singing the banana boat song..."Day-oh, Day-oh!"

Another artist friend of mine had a different take; he said "Nice to see you branching out into the kinky 'fruit bondage' genre!"

Thanks, Becky Joy!
