Painting #5 "Olivas Jaen" a small watercolor
I want to share with you what she said about the photograph. I found in fascinating! Thanks Elena!
"'Olivas Jaen' is a picture of some olives from one of the olive trees in my uncle's orchard. My mom is originally from Jaen, where the BEST olive oil in the world is made (ok... I am a bit biased). Olive oil has literally been an integral component of my family growing up, since we have many uses for it: cleaning, healing, gifts, and of course, memorable meals with friends and family around the table. These little olives yield a golden liquid that is worth more to me and my family than the actual metal."
FYI, because I created this painting for a specific individual, I will give her a chance to purchase the painting before posting it on my Etsy shop.
