INTUITION on STEROIDS-Intuition Workout Workshop

"The Messenger"
From the original oil painting by Marina Petro

Are you aware that intuition is often depicted as a white bird, or eagle, soaring through the heavens? One of the reasons for this is the deeper insightful ‘birds eye view’ of life and situations that your intuition brings to you…the greater picture…

Albert Einstein…(pretty smart dude) said “The only real valuable thing is intuition.”

Intuition is considered as the highest form of human intelligence. It’s that unique ability to directly understand something even without logic or analytic reasoning.

If you are up for a Great Adventure in this New Year to expand your awareness exponentially and develop your intuition consciously, the Intuition Workout workshop -1 online is for you!

It’s coming up VERY soon…..Begins Saturday, January 11 from 9:00 - 10:30 am for 4 consecutive Saturdays online. If for any reason you cannot attend online, I will make the video and audio recordings available to watch at your convenience.

I will need to know if you are interested in attending and register by Wed, January 8 ….just short of one week away!

For all Details + Registration:

Check out the fascinating story of how I discovered my intutive/psychic talents here:

Hope to see you online later this month!

"My Brain" ~ Jury's Favorite 15%

©Marina Petro
From The Zone Series ~ "My Brain"

Prints on paper and canvas are available in several sizes~contact me for details

What a lovely surprise!! I just received an email informing me that a painting I entered in the May 2019 BoldBrush Painting competition at Fine Art Studios Online is one of the jury's favorite 15% of all the entries. 

The painting is From The Zone Series "My Brain" originally painted with tempera paint on  22"x28" paper. It is now available as a print. 

This painting was created as the result of a very strong impression I received to paint an abstract depiction of my brain. I chose the first color I was attracted to ....tuned into my brain....and began to paint non-stop until the painting was finished. 

So, take a good look and try to imagine what it is like being in my brain....Maybe you'd like to try your hand at painting your brain....

In any case, have fun if you try either!!

Today's Quotation: "To have taken up painting, no matter at what age, or point in one's life, is to have entered into a new and deeper awareness of the whole meaning of existence, to have tasted spiritual refreshment, and to have found the perfect form of creative relaxation."

VIEW FROM WIAWAKA-Lake George, Original Oil Painting by Marina Petro

"View From Wiawaka~Lake George"
14x11 inches
Original plein air oil painting on stretched canvas

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

The weather forecast was grim with severe thunderstorms predicted  the morning I decided to drive to Lake George, NY to paint this beautiful lake from the dock at Wiawaka Center For Women. The Wiawaka center is a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the lives of women.

As it turned out, it was the most beautiful, peaceful morning and perfect painting experience. The scene was overcast and the distant hills were muted in beautiful silver shades. I sat on the dock painting, enraptured by the sound of the water lapping rhythmically as it met with the dock and shore. I hope my 'close to but not quite'experience of Nirvana is transmitted through this work of art...I will certainly paint there again this summer, God willing...

Early Evening Mist~Lake George

20 x 16  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.

This ultra serene original oil painting was created from a photograph my daughter, Yvonne, shot along the famous Million Dollar Beach in Lake George, NY. As soon as I saw her photo, I knew I had to paint it.

Photo above does not do the painting justice at all! It is much more beautiful in person.

I am looking forward to paint Lake George again this Saturday. I was invited to join the Adirondack Pastel Society in a Plein Air painting day at the beautiful Wiawaka Center For Women. Haven't decided whether I will bring my acrylic or my oil paints. I will keep you posted...

Quote below is so very true...
