I painted this colourful little house after my trip to Ethiopia in the summer of 2016. I travelled by road from the Lower Omo Valley up to the capital city, Addis Ababa and saw many vibrant and attractive roadside buildings along the way. With this particular house, I was fascinated by the bright colours and the contrast with the stormy sky.
