This work is created using reference painting sketches, photographs and Terrill Welch’s memory from her travels this spring to a farm outside of Florence Italy. The painting of the olive tree seems to collapse history and time onto a contemporary the canvas. As a 40 x 30 inch oil on canvas painting, it provides a good-sized view of the Italian countryside.

Usually work-in-progress images are shared on Terrill’s Creative Potager blog. This time however, the unfolding of THE OLIVE TREE seems to ask to be part of the painting’s debut and release. Enjoy!
