EARLY MORNING ON LAKE GEORGE
Original Oil painting on 12x24" stretched canvas

Only one in the entire universe, and it could be yours!!
Certificate of Authenticity is provided with all original paintings.


LAKE GEORGE is one of my favorite places to visit. This particular rendition of original paintings I've done of the lake was inspired by a photograph a friend of mine took. The view is from Million Dollar Beach on Beach Road.

Today's Quotation: "Without poets, without artists, men would soon weary of nature's monotony. The sublime idea men have of the universe would collapse with dizzying speed. The order which we find in nature, and which is only an effect of art, would at once vanish. Everything would break up in chaos. There would be no seasons, no civilization, no thought, no humanity; even life would give way, and the impotent void would reign everywhere." 
~Guillaume Apollinaire

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


SEPTEMBER MIST~Original plein air acrylic painting completed yesterday during the plein air festival in Round Lake, NY. 
Isn't this a soothing image? I'd love to walk through the mist and discover what lies beyond....at least in the painting. The actual scene that inspired it is below....I didn't want to paint the house or fence and just let my creative energies flow. I chose this scene because it was right across the street from Leah's Bakery and their coffee and bathrooms were just feet away....

SUNFLOWER- Original Oil Painting by Marina Petro

"Sunflower"

8 x 10 inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas ~Framed

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


SUNFLOWER was created to be displayed in a special exhibit at  the Spring Street Gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY to benefit Pitney Meadows Community Farm. We were instructed to visit the farm for inspiration and to create a project inspired by sunflowers. 

Exhibit opening is this Saturday, September 15 from 4 - 6 pm. I have a plein air event in Round Lake, NY where I will be painting outdoors all day and not quite sure whether I'll be able to attend the opening...boo hoo...But...if it is raining I will be there....


I knew of the farm but didn't know about the amazing flower gardens they had there. Pitney Meadows is now on my list of favorite places to paint on location...en plein air.

"Lakeside"
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.


"LAKESIDE" was painted plein air on a very beautiful summer morning on the shores of Lake George in upstate NY. I arrived at the site on Million Dollar Beach at 8 am. Everything was changing rapidly...clouds, light, wind, etc. It was challenging but I am happy with the result. 


Today's Quotation:  "The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you; Don't go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want; Don't go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don't go back to sleep."

A Glimpse Of Heaven is an original oil painting created intuitively from my imagination. Can you imagine viewing this beautiful and serene painting in your home or workspace daily? 

When I completed the painting and pondered a title for it, I felt as if I was surrounded by angels and viewing/experiencing heaven for a brief moment. I consider this piece "Healing Art."
