These six paintings were inspired by my trip to Iceland in the summer of 2017. I never meant to go there in the first place but it worked out well. I was supposed to go somewhere easy, somewhere with a beach, somewhere inexpensive. The next morning I woke up in the same chair I was sitting in the night before with an email confirmation from American Airlines congratulating me on my trip to Iceland the following week. At check-in, the attendant informed me that my one hundred days left on my passport was insufficient to visit most countries in Europe, that I would most likely get deported upon arrival. But hey, guess what? Now I know a lot more about the Schengen area; you only need ninety days. While I didn't see much of Iceland due to a lack of preparation, I found in that place beautiful people, wonderful country, and true inspiration. Pro tip: Iceland's airport is actually in a town called Keflavik, not Reykjavik, but there is a bus that runs every half hour or so, don't worry.
