Icelandic Circles: The soulful strains of a melancholic violin and cello sweep you away on a majestic orchestral odyssey, weaving through the awe-inspiring tapestry of Iceland's landscapes.

Hraun: Hraun is an Icelandic term that translates to "lava" in English. It refers to the solidified, molten rock that flows from a volcano during an eruption. Lava can take various forms depending on its composition and the conditions under which it cools. In this abstract painting, the lava is still hot!

Dalur: Dalur is an Icelandic word that translates to "valley" or "dale" in English. In the context of Iceland, a "dalur" refers to a low-lying area of land between hills or mountains, often characterized by fertile soil and the presence of rivers or streams. This abstract painting imagines rivers of lava.

Eldfjall: This abstract painting depicts an active Icelandic volcano, and embodies nature's fiery prowess as molten forces deep within the Earth's crust surge upward, periodically unleashing spectacular displays of raw energy. Its imposing silhouette, shrouded in a cloak of mist and ice, contrasts starkly with the dynamic inferno beneath. Billowing plumes of ash and smoke intertwine with the arctic winds, painting the sky with a dramatic, ephemeral masterpiece.

Black Sand Beaches: An abstract painting depicting the black sand beaches, including Reynisfjara Beach. The dark sand, basalt sea stacks, and towering cliffs create a dramatic and picturesque setting.

Lava Flow of Thoughts: Lava Flow of Thoughts is a metaphorical phrase that implies the flowing and continuous stream of thoughts or ideas, similar to the way lava flows from a volcano. In this abstract painting it describes a creative or intellectual process where ideas are coming forth rapidly and continuously, much like the molten rock flowing from a volcanic eruption.
