Arrival in the Land of Ice

After 3 flights, 3 buses, 1 train and nearly 13 hours of layovers I’ve finally arrived at the Skaftfell Center for Visual Arts in Seydisfjordur, Iceland. It’s taken some time to recover from all that traveling, but I’m beginning to get settled. Here’s a couple quick photos I snapped along the way.

Takk Fyrir!

Beautiful Seydisfjordur. Yes, I know it looks like Santa's Village.

Blurry shot of my little house/studio for the next two months. Formerly owned by artist Birgir Andresson.
