It is more than the paint…it is more than the place…it is about the journey… Rainbows may be elusive, but they seem to thrive on Orkney…and when the day ends, and your luck is right, the sea will turn lavender and the clouds, well, they will dance in colors that delight! I hope we will meet and paint and enjoy the immersion into all that is Orkney!

Your attention to details is unparalled …it was very much appreciated….In a word, phenomenal! Orkney. How can I describe the ’special magic of the place? You had shared your experience of it with me and you were absolutely right in everything you said.… For me wasn’t only seeing the sites …they felt even more eloquent in their silences…it was seeing them against the backdrop of such an incredibly beautiful and varied space. It’s the kind of place where you don’t need any other activity other than watching the play of nature…It’s the every-changing colors of the sky reflected in the sea. It’s the way the light changes every second and you can actually see the sun’s rays against the clouds. It’s the cattle grazing, the birds singing, the clean, misty air…and all of this creating such a feeling of peace and harmony which is so tranquilizing. …and by the way…even though the art workshops were not the focus of my visit, I want you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed participating in them with you. You should feel proud that your educator’s tenacity seems to have uncovered a latent artistic talent.– Inga, art collector
It was sooooo great. I will not fill the pages with what fun it was, but also what great people you introduced us to.. This was by far one of the most significant vacations we have ever taken. We loved Orkney, all the wonderful people we met and the interesting sites we saw.– Marty
…the whole experience (not vacation) was divine. SPOT ON!! We laughed so hard and so much. We fell in love with the people and the whole country. Once in a lifetime trip *** rating!…– Virginia, landscape architect
BUT for me it was the history! The excitement of prehistoric being a stone’s throw from World War sites, like Scapa Flow….blew me away…– Tom
