The Old Summer House

The old Summer House

This little house on top of Storhofdi in Vestmannaeyjar was originally built as a "Summer house" some time before last war or before 1940 by building architect Sveinbjörn in Vestmannaeyjar.  He used it both for his family and also when he went Puffin hunting .  Today it looks like the sheep enjoy being around it.  
An Australian friend of mine who was visiting a while back took this interesting photo,  I could not resist painting it.  It is only a 15x15cm oil on masonite.
I will include the photo she took for you to look at but of course I changed it a fair  bit as I could see all sorts of colors and story in it.
I hope you enjoy this little explanation.
