Yesterday it snowed all day and the view of the fjord is a bit different. I’m staring out the window right now though hoping the clouds will recede and I might get some constant sunlight. It didn’t occur to me when planning the works I was going to make that Iceland may not have sun-shiny days – a necessary ingredient for cyanotypes. I’m ready to experiment if the sun will stay out long enough.
But I’m also prepared to change media and will think along the lines of the pieces that are currently showing in the Re-Create exhibition at the Albury LibraryMuseum.
Icelanders are incredibly loyal to their sagas and stories. The troll seat story is that many years ago two trolls were trying to break the Westfjords away from the rest of Iceland and they were succeeding, but one sat down to rest. Hence the large “bottom” indentation.
