This piece is a wedding commission for some of my best friends on that planet. It is an impressionist-ish (not intended to be photorealistic) rendering of a fictionalized version of Iceland’s Vestrahorn mountains. This took 7 months from beginning to completion. However, one of the most incredible beauties of this job is the opportunity to give a gift from my heart to my friends. Considering their friendship is such a beautiful part of my own life, it is an absolute honor to try and add some beauty to their everyday life.

”I have no duty to be anyone’s Friend and no man in the world has a duty to be mine. No claims, no shadow of necessity. Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” – C.S. Lewis
