It is almost apple picking time here in upstate NY. I live out in the countryside of Saratoga Springs near a huge apple orchard. Depending on what else is transpiring in my life, I will do my best to get over there and pick apples with plenty of leaves attached. It is so difficult to find fruit with their leaves still attached and intact. Leaves add a great deal of interest to the painting.

Approaching Eden, Healing Art, Landscape, Garden Oil Painting, Original Art By Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"Approaching Eden"

8 x 10 inches
Original oil painting on canvas
SOLD



Did you notice the term "Healing Art" in the title of this mailing? Wonder what I mean by that? OK...take a slow and gentle deep breath and move your awareness into "Approaching Eden". Imagine you are actually in this beautiful serene landscape. Notice how you feel now. 

This painting contains the primary colors that are considered 'healing colors' along with the serenity of the scene depicted. I bet that if you were hooked up to a biofeedback contraption while you viewed this painting, it would most likely indicate your consciousness changed, stress levels lowered, as well as blood pressure. 

Actually many hospitals are now getting pretty savvy with regard to the healing impact images and especially original art has on their patients. Original art because it contains the full impact of the artist' energy and intention. My intention when painting is that the viewer will benefit and be uplifted in some way....that's all...

"APPROACHING MARS"

24 x 36  inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

$950


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





I painted "Approaching Mars" from my imagination. Initially I had nothing in mind...just began to dip my brush in the colors I was attracted to, one by one, until it was completed.

In 2014 "Approaching Mars" was used for the cover of "Gulliver Of Mars" by Edwin Arnold, a book originally published in 1905 and reprinted in 2014 by  Bottom Of The Hill Publishing. Quite an honor!

A Peaceful View, Plein Air Landscape Oil Painting of Saratoga Lake, NY by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro
"A Peaceful View"

11 x 14  inches
Original plein air oil painting on stretched canvas

$179

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.





I began painting "A Peaceful View" outdoors at the edge of Saratoga Lake in Saratoga Springs, NY. It began to get a bit too cold for me to continue so I finished it up in my nice warm studio. 

This was a particularly difficult painting to photograph correctly. It almost matches the original but not quite. The white areas in the clouds are a bit whiter than what appears in this photo. 

...AND ON A HUMOROUS NOTE...

As I was driving back home from town (Saratoga Springs, NY) along the beautiful country roads, I came to the top of the hill on Staffords Bridge Road heading toward Southard Road where a large expanse of acres and acres of meadow/farmland that had recently been mowed came into view. Mind you, I make this drive almost every day and have been for the 18 years I've been living in my home. 

Well today I had the funniest thought that took hold and.... I had to restrain myself from driving off the road and onto this wonderful meadow. I imagined the owner of the farmland trying to stop me but I ignored him until the police came and arrested me for whatever the crime was for driving all over it and refusing to stop. I continued to entertain myself with this fantasy until I got home...maybe I will indulge myself and actually do it some other day.......that's all...

Fine Art Print - Signed and Framed

$17.99



The original painting, "ANGEL DESCENDING" was a large original oil painting on canvas. It was the very first angel I'd ever painted. It was also a commissioned piece that was to be used to illustrate a CD cover....I lost all that information quite a few years ago in a nasty computer crash.

If the person that commissioned me to paint the angel hadn't done so, I might never have thought of painting angels....interesting how things unfold. My feeling about this particular angel is that she brings blessings with her presence....

©Marina Petro

"THE APPARITION"

Fine Art Print - Signed and Framed

$17.99



The original painting, "THE APPARITION" was a large  oil painting on canvas which sold many years ago to a collector in Australia. 

This angel was painted spontaneously/intuitively and when she was finished, I realized she was a vision of an angel that visited me when I was 16 years old while walking in Central Park, NY with a boyfriend very late one night. Central Park was never safe at night. I am sure she was there to protect/warn me. I turned, saw her behind me, and bolted running out of the park....

I'm happy to make this angel available as a framed and signed fine art print for you to enjoy.

The frame it is in enables display on your wall, desk or table...
