B4060. A Bowl of Olives: On Food and Memory by Sara Midda. 2014. 128pp. 5.5"x7.5". Hardcover

Sara Midda is a watercolorist whose delicate and beautiful paintings shine like jewels, evoking the sweet purple of a blackberry or the silvery greens and gnarled burnt umber of an olive grove. She is a collagist, weaving together photographs, line drawings, her personal swatches—all the hues of a spice cabinet, or the sensations of a picnic, the colors of the breeze, sunshine, laughter, the cooling grass. And a she is poet, in love with words that sing, like podding and wicker, nettle and snug. Sara Midda is the author of In & Out of the Garden and South of France.
