Product description

The olive tree's silent tale of resilience and rebirth.

Solitary yet stately, the olive tree assertively accents the Italian countryside. This enduring landmark symbolizes resilience and strength.  It offers a constant testament to the persistent beauty of nature. As it gracefully pivots with the seasons it stands as a loyal token of life’s relentless transformations.

These first few paintings that remind me of olive trees emerged serendipitously. When I consider this, I think of a quote by famous artist, Agnes Martin. She said, “Art is the concrete expression of our most subtle feelings.”

My spirit has become stronger over the past year. Maybe these olive trees appearing in my work are a reflection of the transformative shift within to stand tall.

The olive tree and olive branch have been symbols of peace and reconciliation ever since the account of Noah’s flood. 

More than just a piece of art; it's a reflection of the soul and the world around us.  Don't miss the chance to bring a fragment of this narrative into your space.
