A Bunch of Things….

theo-blog.jpg“Theo” was inspired by a vintage Trinidadian post card from the early 1900’s. This will be one of my entries in the Good Hope Art Show opening here on February 15th. Until I moved to St.Croix, I had never seen a” hand” of bananas. I had no idea they were as heavy as they are or that there are so many varieties. We have red ones, short and stubby, growing in our yard. Their leaves provide homes for tree frogs and shade for less hearty plants that grow below them.

-An example of bananas ” in situ”and not wrapped in cellophane like they are in the supermarket was taken here in St Croix by artist/photographer/blogger/movie reviewer extraordinaire Judith Wolfe.
-Now play this video clip, scroll back to ” Theo ” and have a good laugh at what is probably one of the best soundtracks in a movie scene- EVER!
