MOMENTS





We are about to boarder the second half of august. It feels like the air is getting crispier by every day that passes. The nights are becoming darker and I find myself surrounded by candlelight under a blanket on quiet evenings. I'm looking forward to the changing seasons but I will definitely miss these long and bright summer nights. This summer has been one of the best I have experienced yet, filled with travels, natural hot pools, climbing on glaciers, hikes, laughs, meeting new people, dancing and drinking in the city. The summer is not over yet and there are a few things I want to cross of the list before the leaves on the trees turn yellow. Plans intertwining with dreams and visions. 

/ walk barefoot in the sand 
/ bathe in a natural hot pool at midnight
/ dinner at the pier
/ pick fresh berries 
/ camp right next to the ocean
/ have breakfast in the sun outside
/ hike on Hornstrandir
/ have a bbq in the garden
/ take a walk by the beach at sunset
/ picnics in the wild
/ write 
/ dance until sunrise 

What will you do?

APPETITE



After a little time away from drawing and painting I have found my appetite to start again. Sometimes my son and I sit together in the living room with our watercolors and paint small pictures, other times I sit with my sketchbook and dot down little drawings and thoughts. Working in a very visually driven environment where I'm constantly on the laptop or on the phone I've found that a moment to pause with the physical pen and paper can be more important than moment of stimulation.

SUNKISSED NOSE




Went for a hike in the woods with my french earlier in the week. Fell asleep on a bed of rocks in the summer sun whilst listening to the sound of the wind and flies buzzing around us. A moment of perfect serenity was exactly what my mind was seeking.

MIDNIGHT SWIM




I took a trip with colleagues to Laugarmýri for an overnight stay in june to take some footage for an upcoming project. close to the farm is this natural hot spring, located besides a waterfall. We went for a swim there in the midnight sun. Nothing compares to these kind of summer nights. Looking forward to even more traveling in the second half of july.

LEAVES OF EUCALYPTUS































I like to decorate with eucalyptus branches for various occasions. Placing them in a clear vase with a little bit of water. This time it was for a visit from Fréttablaðið for an interview about my favorite things in my apartment. It's a collection of those little things that I love at the moment. Material sketches from school, the books and magazines, corals and rocks.
