The title of this series tells the ideas behind the paintings. It is an expression of my time spent on a journey to Europe in the summer of 2000 as well as the expression of my personal journey within the context of the paintings. This journey started out as a trip to Iceland to explore my Icelandic roots and also took me to England, Italy, Belgium and Wales. These paintings depict my reaction and reality of those places. The photographs are the start of the vision for each place and then they become the paintings with the colour and sense of the country.
