Let's paint bananas, she said!
I inwardly groaned. I can barely paint a lemon. "Bananas are HAAARD", I whined.
"Come on Mom, I've been wanting to paint bananas." I had just been to HEB, and there was a beautiful bunch of pale yellow, perfect bananas sitting on my kitchen island.
"All right", I sighed. So I put the bananas into my canvas art supply bag, and off my daughter and I went to our art class. When we took them out to put on the set up table, they had broken out with brown speckles during the ride!
Our instructor was puzzled at why we had brought brown bananas to paint. We were laughing and trying to assure him that they were beautiful when we left the house.
So we painted them without the spots. I guess that's artistic license.
