Sliced Banana

I painted this banana one night after dinner. At first I set it up as just the banana peeled, but then my wife suggested it looked a little like something else--if you know what I mean. So then I decided slicing it up would be visually interesting, though a touch unsettling after my wife's initial observation.

When finished this one struck me as being somewhat C├ęzanne-like, with the rough strokes and line work. I wasn't intending that and don't really want to take my painting style in that direction, but since it happened I went with it.
