Olive Grove-Gabriele d'Annunzio's Citadel 6 x 8 Oil on panel. While the other members of our group visited the estate and museum I stayed behindand painted this stand of olive trees. It was a bright and sunny day and I painted this under the shade of a large tree. This was an interesting place as there was a full size war ship built into the side of a hill. d'Annunzio was a famous poet of Italy.
