"COSMIC SOJOURN" Original Full Moon Night Sky Celestial Oil Painting by Marina Petro

First the news!
I have been invited to join the AMP Galleries in the Underground Arts District of Saratoga Springs. AMP Galleries is located in the Saratoga Marketplace at 454 Broadway in Saratoga Springs, NY. I will post photos soon. I am not featured at their website yet as this has just taken place but I do have most of my space ready for viewing so if you are in town, stop in.

Now about today's featured painting ..."Cosmic Sojurn"

"Cosmic Sojourn"

Original oil painting on stretched canvas


Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!

A Certificate Of Authenticity is provided with every original painting.




"Cosmic Sojourn" will transport you out of this world and into another  yet  to be discovered world where all things are possible….

Cosmic Sojurn is another of my fixer up paintings. It's been hanging around my studio since the beginning of time. I finally decided to work over it and am very happy with the result. 

I've been doing fixer-upers lately and enjoying the transformations. I'll have a few more over the next few posts….

"Healing Light" Original Art, Floral Garden Painting, Healing Art by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"Healing Light"
6 x 6 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.



"Healing Light" is another painting created spontaneously from my very very active creative imagination. As with most of my abstract and dreamy/spiritual type paintings, I begin by dipping my brush into the first color that attracts me and begin to paint...and on and on like that until a finished painting emerges.

I consider this painting "Healing Art".....How do you feel when you view it?

"Soulmates" Lone Tree Photograph, Old House, Winter Landscape by Marina Petro

"Soulmates"

 8 x 10 inches or 11 x 14 inches
Photograph by Marina Petro


"Soulmates" is another one of the rare landscape photos I captured that I really like. I am better known for my original oil paintings. This photo was taken along Route 32 in the town of Quaker Springs, NY near Saratoga Springs, NY as I was driving through the countryside looking for beautiful and interesting scenery to photograph and paint.

Cheerful, Color Filled Small Floral Ink Paintings...Original Art by Marina Petro

 Full Bloom
Fly Me To The Moon


Thought I'd share my ink paintings with you again. When I look at them, my mood immediately lifts. To see the full series of seven paintings and all pertinent information, just click the link above.

I've been busy going a bit crazy with organizing all my worldly possessions and discarding/donating a lot. I'm the opposite of a pack rat but nevertheless, have accumulated a considerable amount of 'things.'......even holding on to clothing which are considered antiques at this point in time. All this is in anticipation of a move. More details as things solidify.....

In the meantime, I will be planning a studio and simultaneous garage sale in June. Much of my artwork, prints as well as originals will be deeply discounted. Hope to see some of you there.

"Inferno"
6 x 6 inches
Original oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel

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





"INFERNO" is another painting created spontaneously from my very very active creative imagination. As with most of my abstract and dreamy/spiritual type paintings, I begin by dipping my brush into the first color that attracts me and begin to paint...and on and on like that until a finished painting emerges. This one started with the dark red color at the top left of the painting. 

Today's Quotation: "Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates.
At the first gate, ask yourself 'Is it true?'
At the second, ask 'Is it necessary?'
At the third gate, ask 'Is it kind?'"

ANGEL MOON, Original Angel Painting, Full Moon, Spiritual Art by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"Angel Moon"
16 x 20 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.




ANGEL MOON is another creation from my imagination. It's always (usually) a very happy surprise when angels decide to be born through my hands, paint and canvas.

Today's Quotation: "I am in love with the beautiful in all its manifestations, from the life of man to that of nature and the infinite. I behold the sky; I think of the infinite. All my art is a metaphysical endeavor to overcome visible realities. I search for synthesis and strive to realize a pictorial poem, with as much lyrical content as possible. A painter is a poet who paints poems."
-Gerardo Dottori
