still life of olives

I've been setting up different still lifes for an olive theme. I've been having a blast painting them.

About ria hills

I am a self-taught pastel and oil painter. I was born in The Netherlands, raised in New York and presently live in rural Massachusetts. My work can be found in private collections throughout the United States.
I have 25 years of professional experience in graphic design and as a fine artist. My paintings and conceptual photographs have been displayed in art shows and galleries in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York.

I joined the "painting a day" movement on the web in September of 2006. 
Since each painting takes less time than a large piece to complete, I feel freer to experiment and am constantly improving my skills. It also allows more art lovers to become collectors of original paintings since the prices are more affordable.
