Olivier, who with his great talent can tell a long and complex story on a simple, not-so-large, defined canvas, again surprises us with this painting. Bold and vibrant colors incorporated among the gray trees and shrubs, marking hills and twisting paths, leading the observer to edge of the sky. Seemingly it is another view of the horizon, symbolizing the meeting of earth and sky. Yet, a careful observer will spy a small house on the edge of the hill, just against the skyline. Olivier again plays the game of objects hidden in plain sight, and the reward for the persistent is, as always, a new artistic discovery.
