"Lemons On Persimmon"
Original oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel.
ARTIST~MARINA PETRO, SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY USA
I was so excited when I found the decorative paper the lemons are sitting on. Couldn't wait to create a painting with it.
Since I decided to paint smaller works and blog, a whole new world has opened up for me in regard to subject matter and style. I rarely painted in a realistic style or painted still life pieces back then. Most of my paintings were created spontaneously from my imagination. I still paint in that manner but my skill has improved significantly with the challenge of creating a small painting several times a week.
I'm still at work creating my Angel book. I was going to keep it confined to my angel paintings but realized I had 80 pages to fill and decided to call it "ANGELS-Guardians From Heaven And Their Habitats." I'll be including some of my celestial paintings and gardens in Eden. It's been inspiring collecting the quotations for this book...such as today's quotation. Stay tuned, it's on it's way very soon.
