THE OLIVE TREE

Olive Trees are almost sacred trees to me, being so deeply embedded in the mythology, religion and landscape of the Mediterranean where I was born. I wanted to paint an Olive Tree with the kind of devotion and attention to detail one would approach a portrait, to somehow capture the essence of the tree.
