Olive Branch

7" x 5"

We went to a store today called Taste the Olive, which specializes in olive oils and balsamic vinegars and what a treat! When you walk in the first thing you notice is all the copper vats and tasting cups. I really didn't think I would enjoy tasting olive oil and vinegars, but I was so wrong. Each one was so flavorful it was hard to choose which one I liked best. They even had espresso balsamic vinegar! I ended up with a bottle of Pomegranate Balsamic and Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil. 

When we got home I made some pecan flat bread and dipped it into the two mixed together... it was heavenly. 

Afterward I decided to paint an olive branch and this is the result.
