Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Old Olive Tree in a Stoney Field

Olives are a major crop in Greece, many orchards are very old and are pruned so that the fruit stays close to the ground. The result is massive, characteristically twisted trunks, with low slender branches that bear heavily. To this painter, they have strong personality. This study is one such character in a grove next to an old church.
