California Olive Ranch Study | 6×8 | Oil on Linen Panel

Inspiration for California Olive Ranch Study

My Wife is an absolutely amazing cook, and so she’s particular about her herbs, spices, vinegars, oils, butters, cheeses, etc. etc. California Olive Ranch tops the chart for her preferred brand of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and it took some coaxing on my part for her to let me use it as subject matter! (And she has good reason for her selection: California Olive Ranch won three Gold and two Silver Awards at the 2017 New York International Olive Oil Competition.

Plus, this particular brand comes in a nifty square-shaped bottle, and has a fun logo! (It’s a little man toting a giant olive!) 😃👩🏻‍🍳🥇🎨
