Artist~Marina Petro, Saratoga Springs, NY USA
Original oil on 1 1/2" gallery wrapped stretched canvas.
Painted around all sides and does not need a frame.
Another painting that just flowed from my brush effortlessly. God, I wish this were the case with each creation. It is usually the case when I paint a celestial theme or a painting from "The Zone" series. It happens when I surrender everything and work from pure spontaneity. Everything else, with the more realistic themes, employs my analytical faculties, along with the intuitive faculties and is often quite a struggle. You might ask why I would choose to struggle....? It's because I am driven to develop my artistic skills to the highest level that I can and that involves struggle.
Today's quotation: " Energy is eternal delight; and from the earliest times human beings have tried to imprison it in some durable hieroglyphic. It is perhaps the first of all the subjects of art."
