Infinite Dimensions - Original Angel Art, Outer Space Oil Painting by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"Angelic Dimensions"
18 x 14 inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!
Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.



Infinite Dimensions is another recent emergence from my imagination, finding it's place on canvas. It is always such a surprise (usually pleasant-sometimes not) to see the finished paintings that are created with no prior intention...just letting brush and hand move spontaneously.

"Down By The Riverside" Original Landscape Oil Painting by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"Down By The Riverside"
11 x 14
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!
Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.



This landscape painting was painted plein air on a windy autumn day many many years ago and stashed. I discovered it, 'fixed it up' a bit and here it is! 

It is on an easel in front of me here as I type. It actually looks like the river is moving/flowing rapidly.

Outdoor painting is a joy but often very challenging depending on the weather.

Seascape Ocean Fine Art Print -An Interesting Story

©Marina Petro

"Stormy Sea" 
Fine art print

From the original oil painting by Marina Petro

A couple of weeks ago I received an email with a photo of a seascape painting from friends who purchased it at a second hand shop. They were wondering whether  I painted it. The painting was signed Marina Petro. It was obviously old and a bit damaged with a few scratches. I did not remember painting it but thought it was beautiful. 

I asked my friend to take a better picture of the signature and send it to me because I had no recollection of painting this piece (still don’t).  Imagine my surprise when I saw the signature and realized in fact, it was one of mine.

My daughters remembered the painting and mentioned that I created it after a vacation with them  at the Rockport/ Gloucester, Massachusetts sea shore.

I’ve agreed to ‘patch it up’ and return it to its new parents.

FIRE STORM - Abstract Outer Space Night Painting by Marina Petro

"Fire Storm"
8 x 10 inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!
Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.



"Fire Storm" is another 'fixer upper' painting. The original painting did not have a moon in it or any stars/heavenly bodies whatsoever. It never felt 'quite right' to me. I'm very happy with the result now!

THE PHOENIX RISING - Three depictions of the magnificent Phoenix Rising by Marina Petro

Thought a display of the three Phoenix Rising paintings I've created would be a good start for the new year.

In Egyptian mythology, the phoenix is a beautiful bird that lives for 500 years. It builds its own funeral pyre with wood and spices, sets itself on fire and rises reborn again from the ashes more beautiful than ever to live for another 500 years. The Phoenix Rising is a symbol for resurrection, immortality, triumph over adversity and the indomitable power of the human spirit.

These images are now available as fine art prints in a variety of sizes.  A link under each image will take you to its home at my Etsy Shop.

"Moonrise"
11 x 14 inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!
Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.



MOONRISE began as a plein air painting of Saratoga Lake, NY. When I brought it back to my studio I didn't particularly love it so I began painting spontaneously and this is the result which I am very happy with! Can you see the suggestions of angels among the clouds?

Night Blooms is another 'paint over' creation.

I am actually enjoying painting over works that were nagging at me as needing something more or to be transformed completely. This one was transformed completely! I'm very happy with it now.
