AUTUMN MIST~Autumn Fall Landscape Oil Painting Forest Trees Mist by Marina Petro


ARTIST~MARINA PETRO, SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY USA


"Autumn Mist"
20x24 
Original Oil Painting on Stretched Canvas
Purchase securely at my ETSY SHOP or EMAIL me for other purchasing options.


Observers have described this painting as 'haunting' and 'mysterious.' What do you think? It was painted from a photograph. This scene is a common view here in upstate NY, both in late fall and winter when there is no snow on the ground.

Today's Quotation: "You must not let your life run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done, something that will dazzle the world. Show that God's creative principle works in you."

Cosmic Light 1-Original Abstract Oil Painting of Outer Space, Clouds, Sky by Marina Petro


ARTIST~MARINA PETRO, SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY USA


"Cosmic Light 1"
6x6 inch original oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel
Purchase securely at my ETSY SHOP or email me for other purchasing options.

I have a beautiful 3" wide gold plein air frame for this piece.
I can frame it for an additional $25 -no additional shipping or framing charges.

A painting such as this one, that was created from my imagination,  is something that has never manifested on this planet before. It is truly one of a kind. Isn't that exciting? It certainly is for me and one of the reasons I keep on painting...the sheer curiosity of what will present itself next.


I am still 'out of it' from the holidays. I did get into my studio yesterday and worked on a small still life painting I began a while back. Initially I thought it would be an easy one but turns out it isn't...

This is the last angel in the book. It was really fun to paint. Hope you get a smile from it. I am anticipating new and creative expressions in my work this coming new year. I will be back in my studio painting regularly this week. It happens every year around the holidays. No matter how much I simplify things and try to keep organized, it is very difficult to sustain painting...

MAGICAL POND~Water Lily Pond Landscape Oil Painting by Marina Petro


"Magical Pond"
16x20 original oil painting on canvas by Marina Petro
Purchase securely at my ETSY SHOP or email me for other purchasing options.


Here is another painting created with painstaking focus. It is worth the effort when I discipline myself to try something more difficult like this that takes a storehouse of patience. I did the best I could with this photograph but it still doesn't show the beautiful subtle light shining through the leaves. I haven't painted as much as I would have liked to over the past two weeks and I'm an unhappy little girl  because of it. I'll get back into gear after the holidays.

Today's Quotation: "The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves; banish the word 'struggle' from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred way and in celebration. We are the ones we've been waiting for." 
~Hopi Elder
 MERRY CHRISTMAS

A VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR

FROM THE DEEP-Water Lily Pond Floral Landscape Oil Painting by Marina Petro


"From The Deep"
16x20 
Original Oil Painting
ARTIST~MARINA PETRO, SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY USA

Purchase securely at my ETSY SHOP or email me for other purchasing options.

Picture here cannot do this painting justice. It is difficult to capture the subtle light shining through some of the leaves with my camera. This was another very challenging painting to create and I am very pleased with the result. I am learning patience with these works that are not done in my very familiar spontaneous intuitive way of painting. I've heard Aries individuals were not on the receiving line when patience was being given out.... When I view this piece, it brings me to an instant state of calmness...

STARLIGHT-Original Landscape Oil Painting of Night Sky with Planets, Stars, Clouds by Marina Petro


ARTIST~MARINA PETRO, SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY USA


'Starlight"
6x8 
Original oil painting on stretched canvas, painted around all sides.
Purchase securely for $125 at my ETSY SHOP or email me for other purchasing options.
I have a beautiful frame for this painting. Cost is $25-no extra charge for framing/shipping.

I am in my natural environment when I paint these celestial landscapes. Paint seems to take on a life of it's own and flow naturally from brush to palette to canvas. On occasion, there is pure disaster and I wipe everything off and start all over but the majority of times there is perfect flow...at least that's what I experience. Flow...it's what I aspire to in my life. Following the lead of my intuition has been of great value in this quest...I've got a way to go though...

Today's Quotation:  "Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. "

Strange how angels just seem to paint themselves in some of my paintings. I had no intention of painting an angel...at least not consciously... as I continued to develop this painting. It was just going to be the night sky with planets and the sun's rays flowing down. This is what I find so exciting about painting spontaneously and intuitively...the surprises!

Quotation from the book that goes with this angel:
"Something opens our wings.
Something makes boredom and hurt disapear. Someone fills the cup in front of us:
We taste only sacredness."

STRIPES~Original Large Still Life Fruit Oil Painting by Marina Petro 22x28


"Stripes"
22" x 28"
Original oil painting on stretched canvas.
Purchase securely at my ETSY SHOP or email me for other purchasing options.

Now this was a painting that required a great deal of focus. It was very difficult discerning the folds of the fabric, with all those stripes going on. I painted this quite some time ago and only exhibited it once. It's been in hiding for the most part. I do that on occasion with some of my paintings. I have a stack upstairs in my storage room that I've been ambivalent about or want to tweak in one way or another. Now that I've brought this one downstairs in the main part of the house, I like it more and more...

Painting the heavens, clouds and celestial landscapes is an extraordinarily freeing experience for me. Here is another piece that was completed some time ago and sold almost immediately...another one I didn't think was very good. I am recognizing my rhythm with painting more and more. When I complete a difficult piece that requires a great deal of focus, my next painting is usually spontaneous such as this one pictured. I find great value in exploring all the styles I have developed. Choosing difficult subjects has developed my skill and patience in ways nothing else could have.

It sold almost immediately.

Golden Pear With Red Flowers- Still life Realism Fruit And Floral Oil Painting by Marina Petro


"Golden Pear With Red Flowers:
6x8 Original oil painting on archival Raymar canvas panel
Purchase securely at my ETSY SHOP here.

I fell in love with this fabric and so did my little golden pear model. I had to coax her to get up when our session was completed. When I first contemplated starting this blog and being affiliated with the 'Daily Painters' the biggest obstacle as I saw it was "How do I come up with ideas for a new small painting on an almost daily basis?" It took me several months just jump in and begin. When I did it was as if a dam burst....so, I am overloaded with ideas now. Finding fabrics such as the one in this painting helps a lot too.  I rarely complete a painting a day though...more like 3 or so a week and I always have a larger one on another easel that I'm working on. Incidentally, does anyone know what the red flowers are in this painting? I'd appreciate it if you'd contact me.

"Moon Rise"
16x20 Original oil on canvas by Marina Petro


Purchase securely at my ETSY SHOP or email me (below) for other purchasing options.


Another painting created spontaneously with a very free spirit. I often imagine what it might be when I am no longer in a body on this planet. Most times, I see myself as a spirit, bird's eye view, soaring above everything. I tried to fly once, when I was about 7 years old.....arms outstretched...took one huge enthusiastic leap and landed pretty hard on my belly. That was the end of my experiments with flight...

Magical Angel was created intuitively/spontaneously from my imagination. I wasn't sure what I was going to paint. I began painting the black oval shape which is now the angel's face and the painting went from there, developing into the figure with wings...so I had this painting with a blank black oval face sitting there for quite some time without a defined face. One day, feeling brave enough and determined to finish it, I took a deep breath and once again, cleared my mind as best as I could and let my intuition just take over, one stroke at a time. I am happy with the result....always a new adventure...

From my book: ANGELS~Guardians From Heaven and Their Habitats
A beautiful book to inspire and lift your spirit.
