Black Bird Painting, Marina Petro

Black Bird

Original oil painting on gallery wrapped stretched canvas-painted around all sides.

A Certificate Of Authenticity is provided with each painting.

I a particularly fond of this painting. The detail on the bird's feathers turned out beautifully. It is difficult to see it in this photo. I have it displayed in my gallery and it is receiving many wonderful comments. Crows, Ravens, and other blackbirds evoke a deep feeling of mystery for me.

Here is an article by Charlotte Kuchinsky entitled, Uncovering The Myth Surrounding Ravens, Blackbirds, and Crows.

Pear On Violet, Still Life Fruit Oil Painting, Marina Petro

A Certificate Of Authenticity is provided with every painting.

I love painting pears more than any other fruit. There's just something about them that continues to inspire me to immortalize them on canvas. I haven't been as lucky this year as I have in the past finding pears (or any other fruits) with leaves attached. 

I've decided to repaint some of the smaller paintings I've done, that I really like a lot, on larger canvases. I'll be starting on them this week in preparation for a local exhibit in February.  

I received a notice from Zazzle that they've  added necklaces to their line of products so...I've been busy creating a line of (mostly) Angel Necklaces from my original oil paintings. The necklaces come in round and square designs with a sterling silver plated setting. Simple and beautiful.

Well, this painting is not the Solstice Lunar Eclipse everyone was talking about yesterday. I got up hoping to watch the peak but the moon was nowhere to be found - at least not here in Upstate New York. 

"Morning Moon" was painted a while back and I thought I'd post it today as we do have a full moon today.  The inspiration for this painting came one very clear, starlit, early morning when I woke up, and looked out the kitchen window to find this glowing full moon amid the stars.

For the moment, Sunflower Glow is at my studio at 79 Beekman St. in Saratoga. Stop in and see it in 'person'. it really does glow.

The color pink is said to represent love, a childlike nature, innocence, friendship. Pink is usually thought to be a feminine color while blue, is thought to be a masculine color. Many years ago (I forgot the source now but never forgot the report) I read that baby boys thrive more with the color pink and baby girls thrive more with the color blue... did we get it backwards??? The green in this painting is the typical color that represents healing.  Love and healing...doesn't get better than that!

Today's Quotation: "For one human being to love another: that is perhapsthe most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation."

Healing Angel-Print w/Healing Passage, Marina Petro

Healing Angel Art Print with Healing Passage by Plotinus
Only $10 + $2.50 Shipping
+ a FREE Angel Note Card  ($2.25 value)




I am offering this print of my 'Healing Angel' painting along with a profoud, inspirational, beautiful passage on healing by Plotinus.  The image itself is  4" x 5" and printed on 8-1/2" x 11" White Epson Heavyweight Premium Matte Paper with Archival Epson Claria Inks....ready for the frame of your choice. I couldn't get the image (above) large enough for you to read the writing so I will type it out below here:

"Let the soul banish all that disturbs.
Let the Body that envelopes it be still.
And All the frettings of the Body,
And all that surrounds it.
Let Earth and sea and air be still
And Heaven itself.
And then let the body think
Of the Spirit as streaming, pouring
Rushing and shining into it from
All sides while it stands quiet."
~Plotinus 205AD

Now isn't this one of the most sublime passages you've ever read? Can you feel the healing? I can...

I will have a few of these available at my studio at 79 Beekman St. Saratoga Springs, NY if you'd like to stop in and pick one up. You'll know I am there when you see  my paintings outside on the porch. I'm usually there in the afternoons...still trying to orchestrate my time between seeing clients at my office at home and getting to the studio in town...EMAIL ME  if you'd like me to reserve one or more for you.

Flower Garden Oil Painting, Out Of Darkness, Marina Petro

Out Of Darkness
16x20
Oil on stretched canvas
Purchase securely HERE or EMAIL ME for other purchasing options and inquiries.
Certificate of Authenticity provided with every painting.
Only one in the entire universe, and it could be yours!

"Out Of Darkness" is the last painting my beloved teacher, Tom Vincent, began to guide me through before he died 3 months ago. I had to figure the finishing of it by myself and 'tuning in' to attempt to 'hear' Tom's guidance. Quite a phenomenal experience. It is one of the more difficult pieces I've attempted and would have been even if Tom were physically present. 

You've got to see it in 'life' to understand why.....so, if you're around my studio at 79 Beekman Street in Saratoga Springs and see my paintings out on the front porch, that means I'm there.... feel free to come in. Thank you Genell (one of my painting buddies) for suggesting the perfect title for it...

The decorative fabric adds so much to these fruit paintings. It helps a lot to have an interesting pattern to place the fruit on. I don't have to come up with anything original 'out of my head' ...which is fine a good part of the time... but having an external visual structure to work from lends a sense of relief at other times.

I've been down with bronchitis for about a week and a half and feeling just crummy.  I'd wanted to be posting new paintings more often but just don't have the energy yet. Trying to get myself resurrected for my Open Studio this weekend. You can read about it here in my NEWSLETTER. Hope to see some of you local folks there. I am NOT holding this at my home studio this year. It is being held at my studio at 79 Beekman Street in Saratoga Springs, NY.
