New: “Olive Grove” commission

I’ve never been to Italy, but this piece left me feeling like I just spent the last three or four weeks there. The commissioner wanted to capture his family’s ancestral home not far from the Adriatic Coast. The property is now abandoned and overgrown. The land around the house was a bit barren, but decades ago the meadows were filled with olive trees, which were reimagined for the piece. I “drove” past this place many times, via Google Maps and Street View, and worked up several charcoal sketches to bring the place, and composition, back in time. Out on approval with the commissioner…”Olive Grove” 66 x 48
