"ANGEL'S PLAYGROUND" Original Angel Oil Painting by Marina Petro

"Angel's Playground"
8 x 8 inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


Here is another original angel oil painting created from my imagination. I hadn't intended to paint an angel. It seemed to paint itself at the last minute. I painted most of the painting but felt it needed something more. In an instant, the impression of an angel appeared...and here she is...ready to bring blessings to you and your home.


Today's Quotation:  "The only thing that makes one an artist is making art. And that requires the precise opposite of hanging out; a deeply lonely and unglamorous task of tolerating oneself long enough to push something out."

"Into The Light"

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.



This light filled piece was completed about a week ago. I do love painting 'out of my head' most of the time. The paintings seem to flow more easily and are usually very nice surprises. 

"In The Light" would be a lovely housewarming gift.

Today's Quotation: "A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."

Glowing Garden - Original Landscape Flower Oil Painting by Marina Petro

"Glowing Garden"
9 x 12 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.


"Glowing Garden" was painted with brush and palette knife. The palette knife added very nice texture and another type of spontaneous expression. There is less control with the knife. It's been  an interesting excursion in expanding my creative direction since I've been experimenting with the knife with both oil and acrylic paints.

Today's Quotation: "Beauty surrounds us; but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it."

Oh, would I love to be in this painting right now. Just beyond the flowers and through the mist is the most beautiful pond. Can you see it?

Original oil painting on Gessobord panel

"Angel Of Love" is another original intuitive creation from my ever - active imagination! It is much nicer in person. I've been thinking a lot about painting some angels with my trusty palette knives. We'll see....I have a palette knife painting of a garden on my easel right now calling for me to finish it.

"Joyful Garden"
14 x 11
Original acrylic palette knife painting on Gessobord

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


I began painting "Joyful Garden" this past weekend in Vermont while attending a palette knife workshop presented by Cynthia Rosen.  I completed it on my return home. The inspiration for this painting was a photo of one of my beautiful gardens. I am looking forward to painting more floral pieces outdoors this year... spring through autumn.

SUNFLOWERS - Original Palette Knife Painting by Marina Petro

"Sunflowers"
16 x 12
Original acrylic palette knife painting on Gessobord

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


I painted "Sunflowers" this past weekend at the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, VT while attending a palette knife workshop presented by Cynthia Rosen.
I finished another garden painting when I got back home and will post it this weekend. 

It is energizing and inspiring to attempt new painting techniques. Palette knife painting is so much different than painting with a brush. I also used acrylic paint for their rapid drying properties rather than oil paint which is my primary medium.

What fun! 

Today's Quotation: "It is better by noble boldness to run the risk of being subject to half the evils we anticipate than to remain in cowardly listlessness for fear of what might happen.?
-Herodotus (485 - 425BC) Greek Historian

"Cosmic Serpent" was painted (and I thought completed) quite some time ago. However, the eyes always looked a bit too 'friendly' to me but it was just a week or so ago that I decided to fix them more to my liking. Glad to make this powerful piece available.

"Heaven To Earth" is another painting created spontaneously / intuitively from my ever active and almost always over active imagination. I truly wish I was in the painting soaking up the heavenly light....perhaps I'll transport myself there in my dreams tonight....

This is another creation I consider to be 'Healing Art'....do you?
