Miranda Mills: Love this description of slow and peaceful hot summer days 💛
Nivedita Dey: To an English Literature student as I your writings feel fragrant with a subtle and quaint Austen-ian simplicity and glee.. Blended with a bit of Dickens.. I can almost see and feel my inner Pip strolling down the countryside moor absent mindedly watching butterflies.. Or Lizzy and the Bennet sisters gurgling over a picnic mat far away from Mrs. Bennet's fretting over them.. Your writing transports me to the quaint peace of an inner landscape almost just-pre-Victorian/Romantic/Lake Poets era.. Makes me happily and completely forget that I am living and breathing in 21st century amidst booming gadgets and choking concrete jungle.. You and your posts are such a blessing and harbinger of such inexplicable peace and bliss.. Much Love @marte_marie_forsberg and oh a very Happy Summer Solstice to you and Mr. Whiskey.. :)

Etta Johnson: " I've found it's never really about the big leaps and big steps, it's more about the little things, the little inch that moves us forward daily, and the small changes that leads us closer to our goals. Anything is truly possible, it's just about steady putting one foot in front of the other, and never giving up'' Well spoken!

Last night, returning home by train after having watched a documentary about the works and life of the Italian renaissance painter Raphael. I fell pensive as I gazed at the landscape slowly passing by, all engulfed in a twilight summer haze. His genius and talent left me a bit breathless. At 37 years of age he passed away having just finished the tapestries in the Sistine Chapel in the Apostolic Palace in Rome. Accomplishing more in those years than perhaps the inhabitants of a small village combined do in a lifetime. Michelangelo was painting the ceiling that Raphael got a sneaky peak at, when a friend handed him the key to the chapel one night. Lit up by a torch, he climbed the wooden scaffolding to get a first glance at Michelangelo's work. When he was later given the commission to clad the ground walls of the Sistine Chapel with ten tapestries, he thought of the ceiling and eagerly commenced the work hoping to outdo Michelangelo. These personal stories around incredible artists that have shaped our art world, paints their very human image which I'm ever so excited to share more of with you on my next retreat in Italy in September. Light and composition, the very basic fundamentals of an image can be as simple and complex as we'd like it to be. The more I learn about the great masters, the more it fuels my work as a visual storyteller forward, and takes my gaze off the digital world and into the tangible and real world of galleries, museums, churches and private homes filled with art, like open notebooks from masters gone before us... After the train came to a halt that evening in my little village and I reached the cottage, my mind was wide awake. I opened the rooftop windows and let my mind wander amongst the stars above feeling ever so inspired and eager to push myself as an artist... click on the link in my profile for more information. #artfoodandphotographyworkshop #mmforsbergworkshop #matera
