Before leaving La Romita, I sat in front of this ancient olive tree and tried to capture the twists and turns, bits of sunlight and that incredible blue-grey foliage of olives.

The trees were in flower ... a delicate, soft white/grey that one could hardly see .. but promised that ever popular fruit that has made Italy, and this region, famous.

I took many photos of the olives and will paint several more .. I just love them!

  1. It's great Lin and they are talked about so much in the bible.

  2. NICELY done, Miss Lin, the color of the foliage and its delicacy is beautiful...

  3. I saw my first large olive tree in the south of France...and yes...the incredible blue-green of the beautiful. I think you captured it perfectly.
