Touring Iceland, on the way to Snaefellsjokull National Park
The photos above are some that I took last year while traveling in Iceland. We were going to see Sanefellsjokul, a volcano that we actually braved cold and wind to climb. Pretty cool hike. I like these photos particularly because it is spring, snow still on the mountains, nothing green coming up from the ground just yet and no one around. It seems so long ago, so much has changed. I wonder how the residence are doing in this isolated land? I have a book of Andrew Wyeth’s paintings and these photos remind me of some of his works.
What is the attraction?
I have contemplated the attraction to my road paintings, is it the road itself that suggests a journey? Is it a metaphor for the journey we all explore called life? Perhaps it isn’t the road at all but the open skies portrayed in several of my paintings? Check out my Journeys portfolio and let me know what draws you to this type of painting, or what repels you. What is your favorite? I had a man come into the gallery in February and we were discussing the vehicles in my painting, Sidewinder, (below). He didn’t like them at all and thought it would be a much stronger painting with just the road winding through the mountains. I asked a few of the other folks in the gallery at the time if they liked or did not like the vehicles, which they did. What do you think?
