Flowers and Olive Oil


Work is exceedingly intense and busy -- and I'm so glad the week is almost over!!

But, when I saw this photo, it SO transported back to Italy!!! There is something so ITALIAN about flowers and olive oil .. I just love that!

What a sweet, homey picture. (At least sweet and homey is how it makes me feel) They're starting the olive oil production in Umbria right about now!

Beautifully done, cara! The palette is so very Italian. I can tell how much you enjoyed painting this.

Lin, another wow. I love the tones and the way you managed to paint the bottle.

This one is loose and lovely. One of my absolute all time Lin favourites. :o)

Ooo, I love this one. It looks like it could be used in a magazine ad for olive oil, or Italian travel. It would be very tempting. And I also really like the sunflowers post. Christine M.
