Original oil painting on stretched canvas

JUST SOLD!
(Thank you!)
"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."

"Moonstruck"
6 x 6 inches

Framed at 8 x 8 inches
Original oil painting on archival canvas panel

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


This painting is an idea  I got when I cropped a much larger celestial painting which featured the moon. By now those of you who have been following my artwork must surely realize my special relationship with the moon. Often enough, when I think I've finished a painting, I'll get the impression to paint in a moon....love it!

"The Happy Garden"
14 x 11  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.


THE HAPPY GARDEN  was created plein air at the entrance to the famous Victoria Pool  
at Saratoga State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY. - my current and very beautiful home town! 

The flowers on my table in the photo with my painting gear were presented to me that afternoon by the man who plants all the beautiful floral displays throughout the park - he is truly an artist as well! This year's displays are the best ever.

As I was finishing up this painting, a woman passed by and loudly exclaimed how HAPPY this painting made her feel.....hence.....it's name!

Today's Quotation:  "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” 
~Martha Graham

HEAVEN'S HEALING WATERS-Original Landscape Waterfall Painting by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"Heaven's Healing Waters"
8 x 10 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.


Heaven's Healing Waters is another painting created spontaneously/intuitively from my imagination. I pick up my brush and begin painting spontaneously when I am not feeling particularly directed in any specific way. It is a VERY different creative experience vs. painting outdoors or having a specific subject in mind. These are always (usually) a pleasant surprise. The ones that aren't you've never seen.


Today's Quotation:  “Silence is the language God speaks, and everything else is a bad translation."

"Fairies And Flowers"
6 x 6  inches
Original oil painting on Gessobord

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


"FAIRIES AND FLOWERS" is a new creation. Can you see the fairies? They seemed to just appear in many of the loose flower petals I painted in. Love these happy little surprises! 

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."

"STARRY SKIES" Original Landscape Oil Painting by Marina Petro


"Starry Skies"
11 x 14 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.


"STARRY SKIES" was initially going to be a plein air painting I began at Saratoga State Park per the pictures below. When I brought it back to my studio I could not harness my ever active imagination and it became a totally new creation painted spontaneously/intuitively. I love these surprises.

Today's Quotation: "It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It's my partner."
-Jonas Salk
