I drew and painted this little girl and her mum when they were playing in the street outside their fruit stall in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I was sitting on the balcony of the pizza restaurant opposite, having lunch with my son.

It was such a happy and colourful scene, even with the busy crowds and traffic rushing past, I wanted to capture a quiet moment between a mum and daugther, thousands of miles away from my own home.

(I used the image of the mum and daughter in a series of lino prints which I created for an exhibition at a local art gallery. I added a heart-shaped balloon to the lino prints because the theme of the exhibition was "Interpretations of Love".)
