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" Original Abstract Oil Painting by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"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"
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

THE FIRST ANGEL, Large Original Spiritual Abstract Angel Art Oil Painting by Marina Petro


©Marina Petro

"The First Angel"
24 x 36 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.




I'd originally titled this one-of-a-kind painting  "Genesis" but recently changed the title to "The First Angel" because whenever I looked at it lately I kept seeing an angel emerging from the light.

"The First Angel" is being offered with a beautiful 3 1/2 inch antique frame which, in itself, is worth about $300 if not more.....

This painting was created spontaneously from my imagination. I didn't have anything in mind when I began to place colors on the canvas. I simply began painting, following my creative instinct each moment, and this is what resulted! It's always such a great adventure and surprise when I've completed these spontaneous/intuitive works. I am happy with it and hope you enjoy viewing it as well.

"Light Bearers"
10 x 10 inch - Original oil painting on 1.5 inch stretched canvas
Wired and ready to hang. 
No frame needed.

$250

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




Does Light Bearers look familiar to you?
It might because I'd posted an earlier version of it in the past. I kept looking at this painting and feeling I needed to work on it more. This happens at times even though I thought I'd finished it and posted it. I decided to add the night sky with stars and now I am VERY happy with the result.

"Delicate Beauty" Floral Art, Original Ink Painting by Marina Petro

"DELICATE BEAUTY"

Image - 5 x 7 inches

Original framed ink painting on ultra smooth Yupo paper
$75

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

Can be hung on the wall or placed on a desk or table.



"Delicate Beauty"  almost ended up in the trash at one point. I am still a novice working with India Inks and at first, this creation was a disaster. I wasn't going to give up too easily so I brought it to the kitchen sink and began to scrub off some of the paint....and....this is the result.  I'm very glad I didn't trash it.

"Floral Jewels" Original Floral Ink Painting by Marina Petro

"FLORAL JEWELS"

Image - 5 x 7 inches
Frame- 7.5 x 9.5 inches

Original framed ink painting on ultra smooth Yupo paper
$75

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

Can be hung on the wall or placed on a desk or table.



"Floral Jewels"  I continue to enjoy creating these floral paintings with ink. It is such a departure from working in oil paint. I just choose the colors I am attracted to initially and then start dipping my brush and moving paint around. The inks run and blend in ways that are most often pleasantly surprising and I love pleasant surprises...have had enough of the opposite end of the surprise scale...

Incidentally, the blue flowers are more like a turquoise color...my scanner was not cooperating.

"Angels Among The Clouds" emanates  the most peaceful, elevating  feeling. When I was pondering what to name it, I noticed more than one subtle (unintended) angel among  the clouds....this is how it got its name.
