Artist's Insight:
This painting is based on the first place I stopped at during my visit to Iceland. It was approximately 5AM and we were the only ones at this otherwise popular location. The exhaustion from travelling completely disappeared when the colours in the sky began to change and the sun was rising in the opposite direction. The moon was lit up in a strange neon peach colour and the atmosphere was the most peaceful I have felt in recent memory. This painting captures this atmosphere and the stillness of the early morning through its colour palette and minimalist composition.
