The beautiful olive trees of Anna

I received the Moleskine book from Anna. When you open it, immediately you are transported to a sunny hill in the Mediterranean, where the ground is red and terraced with old stones. A group of trees are there from a thousand of years ago or more, surviving the wind and the cold, the drought and the heat. In the autumn they are full of little fruits, from which people take the oil, source of live for generations.

Anna's olives are incredible, an explosion of light and colours that you can open and enjoy. Here are the pictures, so you can see them. I'm so happy to receive her book. Now I have to think in something to draw. Thank you Anna, what a magical scene.
