"GARDEN OF LIGHT" by Marina Petro
"Garden Of Light"
Oil on canvas textured panel-notched on back for easy hanging without a frame.
Email me to inquire about purchasing this piece.
I was going to title this piece 'Meditation Garden' but decided on 'Garden Of Light" After painting still life and more structured pieces, I usually get a strong impulse to just cut loose and paint something purely from my imagination. It is a good balance for me. I learn so much from the more realistic pieces. It involves a completely different level of 'seeing'...much more analytical in its own way, but also includes intuition. Painting is a good exercise for the brain. Glad mine is still in relatively good working order...better than a few of my other parts lately...
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."
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
