Cerisnolla Olives, 6x6 Inches, Acrylic Painting

SOLD
There's an Italian section of Providence called Federal Hill, and there are tons of restaurants lining the main drag (Atwells Ave.).  One of my favorites is Constantine's Venda Ravioli.  You can eat outside (al fresco?) facing a little square with a big fountain, or indoors, literally tucked into the shevles and bins of food prep utensils and cappuccino makers.  The entire center of the shop is a huge rectangle which sells cheeses, olives, prepared food and meats.  I was there last week and was captivated by the large, meaty black, red and green olives called Cerisnolla Olives.  A plate of different kinds of olives, some crusty bread, excellent olive oil and some cheese... what more could a person want?

  1. Love these little guys:) They look like they are shuffling along to an art show. Wonderful colors and the shadows are the best!! Sounds like a fun place to hang out. Perhaps they need some artwork on their walls?:):)
