Stay Put

Stay Put
You can find some big olive trees in the Tuscany region of Italy.
Occasionally, you might see a majestic one standing amongst
a grove of much younger trees. It is a sight to behold.

This is my entry to The Summer of Color, Paint Party Friday and IF.

Tuscany has always been on my wish list of destinations and studying your painting is making me pine for it even more so. I have a bad case of Wanderlust at the moment and you are to blame :)
Astonishing painting.

Wow! Love the beautiful texture in this wonderful olive tree! Olives are one of my favorites and I eat them every day! Never met an olive I did not love, even in a painting!

This is really beautiful!!! I've never been to Toscany, but looking at this, you can almost taste and smell the atmosphere, and the air of romance.

Lovely, I really like the intensity of the shadows in contrast to the softness of everything else.

Franz said...

A wonderful job!
Even here in Sardinia there are olive trees, ours is an ancient land full of these plants :-))
Ciao!!

Cynnie, as I am not an artist on your scale, I don't even know enough to comment on this piece except to say "Wow, I really, really love this!" You are truly a talented artist on so many levels!

EVA said...

Wonderful painting! Lovely tecture too. I really love seeing olive trees too. But last time I made the foolish mistake of trying to eat an olive off the branch. Yuck.

Heather said...

this is very well done...i really like the texture here... just lovely how the older tree is mixed within the newer ones...beautifully done!

oh how lovely dear Cynnie!
for some reason your beautiful Olive Tree reminds me of Ferdinand the bull sitting under the cork tree...I used to read that to our three boys when they were little...

beautiful painting as always!

Fantastic!

Rod MacGregor said...

Living amongst olive trees in the Valencian region of Spain..I also find myself often in awe by the larger ones..the locals say some olives can be one to two thousand years old..this makes me stand near them..guess there age and think about the events that have past whilst they had stood there...Your painting is a great tribute to that!

Linda R. said...

Thanks so much for sending me to artsee blogger. You are so kind.

Hugs, Linda

I think this is one part of the world I would like to see...not that it will ever happen....and your painting has captured the wonderful colors and shapes of the olive grove.

What a fabulous painting, Cynnie. Makes me long to return to Tuscany - except that it will be too hot and I'll be bitten by all the insects. LOL

This is lovely, Cynthia. The textured paper and soft colors infuse your painting with spirit. The dark colors in the trunk add a nice sense of history and mystery.
