Olives and Oil
'Olives and Oil' is a framed original still life oil painting based on the famous Italian olive oil. Classic colors of Italy of red (a bright red cloth wraps around the food in this horizontal artwork), white porcelain, and a touch of green in the olives that await you in a transparent bowl will brighten up most dining rooms or kitchens.
This small composition of green olives and a cruet of olive oil are painted on prepared linen and "doubly framed." The art fits perfectly in a small apartment dining room space or cozy corner of your home. Framed and ready to hang, this still life painting ships for free.
A staple of the Mediterranean diet, olives and olive oil (that should not see the sun) are a great subject for this Tuscany inspired painting and is sure to whet your appetite!
Beautiful gift for lovers of Italy and healthy eating.

Olives and Oil
How to paint a rich red in various tones of light and shadow is a skill that painters must learn. Another one is how to paint a shiny white porcelain object by using non-white paint (because the whitest paint available will be the highlight on the glossy ceramic.
The green object, green olives in a transparent glass bowl in this case, is for color contrast and fun. I have done a couple of these paintings because I am so drawn to this rich red color.
I chose the soft yellow wooden wine box to add a cozy warmth and soften the dark background.
To top of the tastes of Italy depicted, I had Salvadori Cornici Bottega D'arte in Pescia, in the heart of Tuscany, frame this oil painting on linen.
She is a lovely little piece to add or start your art collection.
