Landscape with Quiver Trees

Had a desperate struggle with all manner of administrative crises, notably trying to get service out of a bank. Hopefully that is in the past now, so on with a bit of painting. Oil on board, 20 x 25 cm:

Quiver trees are found in some of the drier areas of southern Africa, and are actually a species of aloe. They are so named because indigenous people used their bark to make quivers for arrows.
