Framed against a cloudy sky, two silhouetted houses rest beneath a group of palm trees. Inspired by a vista at the aklowa (village) of Aburi, Ghanaian artist K. Baka paints this calming composition in with an impressionistic style, using liberal, expressive strokes of the brush to create a relief texture.
