Olive oil - SOLD

It's been an emotional couple of weeks. It is hard to say goodbye to someone you love. I was able to spend a fair bit of time with my grandmother in her last days and a lot of time with my extended family since her passing. I thank my grandmother for the gift of a large family who enjoys having fun. I also want to thank all of you for your comments of sympathy left on my blog. I, and members of my family who follow my blog, were very touched by your kindness : ) 
Now however it is time to get back to work. There is a shop in town - Casa Toscana -  that sells olive oil, cheeses and olives imported from Tuscany. I've painted their bottles of olive oil before but when I went back last week for a refill I got the larger sized bottle which comes in a clear glass container. Look at the colour of that oil! Beautiful ; ) Delicious too.
6" x 6" / oil on archival panel / $100 (free shipping worldwide included)

Je tiens ma chère Kim avec un peu de retard à t'adresser toutes mes condoléances... Je viens de rentrer de chez mes enfants...
Je te félicite pour cette belle oeuvre qui honore bien la Toscane que j'affectionne particulièrement.
Très belles nuances de couleurs.
Gros bisous à toi et joyeuses fêtes pascales.

Kim, I'm glad you got to enjoy being with your family. I hope you're doing well. :) Really I do.

But I am so glad to see you back. :) This painting is gorgeous! I love the color! Any time you paint glass I get the chills, it's just that good.
