Where the gladiators emerged at the arena in Italica, Spain.

I have spent time in Andalucia, Spain this month visiting some pretty beautiful sites and landscapes.  Having a car has allowed me to drive into the country side and to stop for things that look interesting.  No doubt I will be influenced by what I saw.  New paintings will come from the trip.

I love the olive trees that are everywhere.  I've attached a photo of a particularly shapely tree.  The cypress trees, which I've painted before still inspire me too!
