OCEANIC is one of my first experiments in pouring acrylic paint on canvas (and other surfaces). I am enjoying this new interest, however, I am also anxious to get back to my oil paintings. I have so many opportunities for exhibitions this season and have been procrastinating and experimenting with new modalities...too easily distracted lately.

Stormy ~ Original Landscape Oil Paiinting by Marina Petro

                                                                                                                                                                         ©Marina Petro

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


STORMY is an original oil painting created from my imagination. It seemed to paint itself. I am never quite sure how a painting is going to develop or how it will complete. When I surrender to the process, the whole experience usually flows without too much struggle. Yes, surprised??? Painting is often a great struggle...It is a struggle to achieve harmony. When that finally happens, it is truly a healing experience.

INCIDENTALLY, I will be presenting  PAINTING FROM "THE ZONE"....my intuitive painting workshop the weekend of January 19/20. Click the link just above for details. Hope some of you can join me in this fascinating and inspirational weekend which will surely awaken your true creativity and great enthusiasm.

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
