Standing Alone, "Landscape Oil Painting," by Marina Petro

Standing Alone
16 x 20 
Oil on canvas

Prints starting at $19 and cards at $4.95 are available at Fine Art America here.

This painting was showing off over the mantle at my studio on Beekman Street for a few weeks. It was purchased online last week. I will miss the peace it brought whenever I viewed it. The colors in "Standing Alone" are all considered healing and spiritual colors. Green is typically known to be the universal healing color (and the one that represents prosperity too) Yellow lifts the mood and enhances the mind. Blue denotes serenity and white represents the spirit....can't beat that! 

Today, I brought in a large still life depicting autumn harvest gourds, vegetables and fruit to replace it. Now I'll be hungry when I look over at the mantle. I will post "The Harvest" tomorrow.

Today's Quotation: "The deepest principle of human nature is the craving to be appreciated."
