SEPTEMBER MIST~Original plein air acrylic painting completed yesterday during the plein air festival in Round Lake, NY. 
Isn't this a soothing image? I'd love to walk through the mist and discover what lies beyond....at least in the painting. The actual scene that inspired it is below....I didn't want to paint the house or fence and just let my creative energies flow. I chose this scene because it was right across the street from Leah's Bakery and their coffee and bathrooms were just feet away....

"Sunflower"

Original oil painting on stretched canvas ~Framed

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


SUNFLOWER was created to be displayed in a special exhibit at  the Spring Street Gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY to benefit Pitney Meadows Community Farm. We were instructed to visit the farm for inspiration and to create a project inspired by sunflowers. 

Exhibit opening is this Saturday, September 15 from 4 - 6 pm. I have a plein air event in Round Lake, NY where I will be painting outdoors all day and not quite sure whether I'll be able to attend the opening...boo hoo...But...if it is raining I will be there....


I knew of the farm but didn't know about the amazing flower gardens they had there. Pitney Meadows is now on my list of favorite places to paint on location...en plein air.

"Lakeside"
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.


"LAKESIDE" was painted plein air on a very beautiful summer morning on the shores of Lake George in upstate NY. I arrived at the site on Million Dollar Beach at 8 am. Everything was changing rapidly...clouds, light, wind, etc. It was challenging but I am happy with the result. 


Today's Quotation:  "The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you; Don't go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want; Don't go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don't go back to sleep."

10 x 10 inches
Original oil painting on 1.5 inch deep stretched canvas

A Glimpse Of Heaven is an original oil painting created intuitively from my imagination. Can you imagine viewing this beautiful and serene painting in your home or workspace daily? 

When I completed the painting and pondered a title for it, I felt as if I was surrounded by angels and viewing/experiencing heaven for a brief moment. I consider this piece "Healing Art."

EMERGING ANGEL-Original Oil Painting by Marina Petro

"Emerging Angel"

30 x 40  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.


Here is another original angel oil painting created from my imagination. Although I named it "Emerging Angel" I hadn't intended to paint an angel. It seemed to paint itself into the painting at the last minute. I also named the painting several times and just as I was about to list/publish it at my online Etsy Shop, the words Emerging Angel appeared...and here she is...ready to bring blessings to you and your home.

This beautiful and mystical work of art also reminds me of the red mountains in Sedona, Arizona. 

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." 
-David Rakoff
