This basil is from my garden and it is beginning to go crazy out there in the bright sunshine! It is fun to get ready for summer recipes ... waiting on the tomatoes. I have always wanted to find a way to connect gardening, cooking and art. This is a good combination! This painting is all about the dark background against the white. The sun shinging through the olive oil was tricky - it was a brighter yellow than you would believe! Enjoy, and just try not to have an Italian dinner tonight!
