[Līga Kļaviņa]

I love it when humans are soft. Just think about it; you know people when they are at their cruel and their competitive when their hearts are on fire and their minds as sharp as the edge of a blade.

And then you see them at 2am, their heads lolling on their shoulders, heavy eyelids, and soft-spoken words. Like I don’t know what I’m doing and
You’re so good to me.


Sometimes humans are too tired to be anything but honest. And catch them then, look at them when they’re just raw emotion and pure, unbridled magic.


Look at them when they see a beautiful photo or a poem, tagging their friends, hastily scribbled love notes in the form of This reminded me of you.
Shakespeare’s love sonnets have nothing on them.


And it takes my breath away because we are all struggling on this planet, working and exploring and trying - oh, we are trying so hard. But we still
have time to breathe out I love you and mean it.

Julius Grimm (1842-1906)

In 1888, Julius Grimm used photography and telescope observation to create this intricately detailed and precise oil painting of the moon. In the night sky, the moon is always lit from behind you – so the shadows of the craters can never appear as they do in this painting. Grimm instead regarded the moon as if it were a still life, bathed in golden light emanating from the left side of the painting. 

“The picture should only be hung or positioned, that the light falls onto the picture from the side where the arrow is positioned, because otherwise, in the case of incorrect lighting, the effect could be completely lost.”
