"Young Mission Olives"
12"x16" Oil on Panel
Another one from the Santa Inez mission paintings. This one painted while we still had a bit of Spring lingering around the valley. These trees are young trees so they don't have the typical look of olive trees seen in most paintings. I painted them young as a matter of record. One day the olive trees will be mature trees being picked every season and I'll paint them again as a matter of record. The fun part of these paintings were painting in the mission on the bluff. From this angle you can't see the parking lot in front of the mission so it has that old look and feel to it.
