Original bas-relief and egg tempera painting with hand-finished fresco frame
Framed Size: 29" x 35" Free shipping in USA
My husband and I love to travel to Tuscany! I am fascinated and inspired by the incredible culinary delights. As an appetizer we love to have black olive tapenade with bread and a nice glass of wine. The little recipe in the corner of the painting gives you a shopping list so you can make your own tapenade.
Customer Review of Tuscany Art
by Tom and Georgiana Castellani, Ridgefield, CT.
Your three original paintings (Everything Tuscany, Italian Still Life and Stairway to Heaven) have just arrived. They are truly beautiful! Your ability and passion for what you do comes through in your work. I can see why you referred to the paintings as "your children" since they are your creations and demonstrate your dedication and commitment as an artist. Georgiana and I consider ourselves very fortunate to have been introduced to your work on the internet and look forward to displaying the paintings in our home.
Tuscan Kitchen Tapenade is framed in a 3" museum quality hand-crafted, solid wood frame. Frame is hand-finished in a lightly textured plaster and egg tempera by the artist. It is the same color as the wood edge of the window in the painting

|This original painting is one of a kind. It has incredible texture! Major items in this Tuscany painting, ( olive tiles, olives, bottles, garlic, lemon branch, recipe etc.) were first sculpted in low relief of about 1/8" before being painted in pure egg tempera.
Linda Paul makes her own paint from fascinating natural minerals such as ancient ochers and semi-precious stones like malachite and lapis lazuli. The natural ochers in all Linda Paul's paintings of Tuscany are collected from the ancient ocher mines in France & Italy.
Using crushed stone to make my paint pigments makes the artwork incredibly luminous and alive. An original work encompasses the soul of the artist and it can be felt when you see this work of art in person.
