Three Olives on Pink

Oil on Linen, 12" x 12"
$245 plus $12.95 shipping via insured Priority Mail
SOLD to a collector in California

I've taken up painting olives again, but this time they're bigger than life-size. I've always loved painting larger than life because changing scale makes me see the object differently. Also when things are larger, I can explore them as abstractions rather than precious little objects. Hmmm, guess I should just keep painting and see what happens. Sometimes it's difficult to talk about art. Best to just make more of it.

Marie, it's always a pleasure and delightful surprise to see your paintings in my email box. These olives are so juicy looking I can taste them!
