In 2013 I spent 4.5 weeks in Iceland. The first three weeks were part of a class called Drawing from Nature led by painter John Zurier and his wife and fellow artist, Nina. The first week was spent in Reykjavík, visiting artist studios, galleries, performances, and exploring the city. At the end of the week, we left the city for two weeks on a very windy and rainy horse farm on the southern coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, home of Snæfellsjökull, a volcano/glacier whose top we never saw due to constant cloud cover. The farm was located in an ideal place, between the mountains and the ocean, perfect for an early morning hike to a waterfall and an afternoon dip in the frigid ocean. We spent our mornings drawing and painting (see below), and spent the afternoons exploring the peninsula and the area around the farm. After the two weeks, we returned to Reykjavík, where I met my sister and my friend for a 10 day camping road trip around Iceland in a Kuku Camper. It was the icing on the cake!
