Oblata de los Platanos (2003)

This is my first oil painting, which was done in collaboration with my brother, Pelayo Garcia (on the left in the photo above) during my family's Christmas get-together. The piece was christened with its title (which means "The Black Nun of the Bananas") by my father. The Cuban primitive theme is a common motif in my brother's paintings, to which I added my own elements (fruit bowl and wooden statue).
