Green Mammoths

 Green Mammoths
7" x 5"  acrylic on stretch canvas

The art group I belong to does challenges to push members into new mediums and subject matter from time to time.  In May the subject was your favourite food or drink. 

For me, its olives.  The bigger, the better.   I wasn't always an olive fan and they're often something people love or hate, with their distinctive briny taste and meaty texture.  But now I probably eat olives most days at some point and my current favourite are these mammoth green olives with blue cheese.  I know, the combination may sound odd, but its sooooooo good.

Have a look at the group's blog to see what others chose to paint.

These are making my mouth water. Beautiful...almost oil like...going to find that jar of olives now.

Acrylic can be a bit unyielding at times, but I use it loosely and in layers and it works for me sometimes.

Mmmm, olives, now that you mention it....
