A nice customer who reads a bit of Arabic filled me in that the full name of the artist is Afif Benanni. The title of the painting refers to "the olive trees of l'Ouka," yet I can't find a town by that name in Morocco. Hmmm. At any rate: it's all about the painting anyway, right? -- a pretty scene that we're guessing is in Morocco, showing a quaint, arid mountain village with sparing greenery -- and you can see one of the olive farmers there by the entrance to her home. The extremely simple palette of earth tone colors adds to the allure of this painting. Measures 27" x 33" with frame, 20" x 26" without.
