This mysterious couple are hidden behind their pots of succulents. Inspired yet again by the magical cactus gardens of Montju├»c here in Barcelona, & my days spent as a teenager sketching hundreds of varieties of succulents in an eccentric horticulturists' green house.

Adoration & The Olive Trees


A mama & child are enjoying the fresh sweet air of the orchard as another child plays in the tree nearby; watching nature through binoculars. I have always been captivated by the magic of olive trees in all their beauty. There are corners of the Mediterranean where the orchards are seemingly untouched for centuries.
This painting is painted on a 31.5" (80 cm) in diameter handmade stretcher canvas made by artisans here in Barcelona, & is available FOR SALE. All inquires are welcome at shirinsahba @gmail.com.
