Paintings from Al Ain, UAE

The city of Al Ain is a green city, a refreshing oasis in the midst of the harsh Arabian desert. Scattered throughout the city are multiple date palm farms, full of countless dates of all kinds. The city is also full of all types of flowers and trees, from plumerias to banana trees to mango trees to jasmine vines. And yet outside the city, certain more durable trees and plants are able to thrive despite the lack of rainfall. These paintings are a few studies of Al Ain vegetation. Some subject matter is inside the oasis city, while some is from outside.
