I am very happy with this painting. It is displayed in my home office and I love looking at it when I am in there. It brings me back to the feeling of my spirit being uplifted when I was painting it.

The reason I titled this piece "Healing Light" is because I painted it on what I consider sacred ground...the beautiful grounds at Christ The King Spiritual Life Center in Greenwich, NY. Many healings have taken place here.

Today's Quotation: "The imagination is a powerful tool. An artist can use it to show others the world as he sees it and to bring others into his dream of what the world could be."

"Fire On The Mountain" has a tiny repair on the lower right back side of the canvas which is almost imperceptible from the front. This painting would ordinarily be priced at $500 + if it were not for this minimal defect which does not detract from the artwork in any way.

Here is "Seer." He has been reluctant to display himself publicly and tried to gallop away... but... I was able to persuade him to let me show him off tonight. I told him someone else might adopt him and pay more attention to him than I have been lately. He's getting tired of hanging out in my studio among all the fruit paintings. I've been in a bit of a painting funk lately and haven't spent a lot of time there either.

"Fish Creek" was painted this past October on one of my local plein air painting excursions with my painting buddy, Debbie. Fish Creek is located on the outskirts of  Saratoga Springs, NY- 3 miles from my home. I was painting at the edge of the creek underneath Staffords Bridge where the Skidmore College Boat House is located. This is a view I see almost daily on my way into Saratoga Springs.

I completed the painting in my studio yesterday. It had gotten too cold and windy on location and I promptly caught a cold afterwards....just got around to finishing it now...

"Genesis" was painted some time ago. I didn't have anything in mind when I began to place paint on the canvas. I just began painting, following my creative instinct in each moment. I am happy with the resulting piece.

When the painting was completed and I was contemplating a title, the impression I received was the 'Creation' and that is how Genesis got its name. I also 'see' a bird or white dove coming forth from the center of the painting. For me, this depicts the 'Holy Spirit.'

Dreamer "Horse Portrait Giclee Art Print" From The Original Oil Painting by Marina Petro

Giclee Art Print on Stretched Canvas
$175

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!

"Dreamer" is a re-post and giclee art print of the very first horse I attempted to paint. I was surprised and happy with the result! The original painting was sold almost immediately. It's difficult to tell the originals from these high quality prints on canvas.

I was obsessed with horses when I was a child. They were my first love. Growing up in the city made it very difficult to have any contact with them though. Before we had television, I'd sit and listen to the radio and make believe I was galloping along with The Lone Ranger and Roy Rogers....the good old days...

"Starlight" is another creation from my imagination painted a while back. It is one of those paintings that just flowed beautifully without glitches. It's not always that way.

"Solitary Confinement" is an older painting that has been successfully hiding out in my studio. She objected loudly when I told her she was going to be featured at my blog today and begged me not to. But, in her best interest, I thought it best to open the opportunity for her to leave the nest...

Well, it's that time again....pumpkins all over the place, etc...So, here is my contribution to pumpkin season. I painted this piece a while back. It was inspired by the pumpkin screaming at me to paint it in a neighbor's pumpkin patch. We were both very happy with the resulting creation...although, she couldn't stop looking at herself on canvas....

Today's Quotation: "A very young painter is seldom alone. If he is an art student, he is in an art school with other students. He does not yet know that one day he will have to face himself as a solitary creature enclosed in a space of four walls... and that he will have to be a self-propelled being, with no one at his side."

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


"Ablaze" is another painting that began as a plein air landscape while I was set up with all my painting gear on the helicopter pad on the beautiful grounds of the healing center/church I attend. I began to paint the landscape but found it difficult to focus so...rather than force something that my energy wasn't up to that day, I decided to set my creativity free and see what happened.

I actually painted most of this piece upside down with the moon at the upper right of the canvas. When it was close to being finished and I was painting in the stars, I turned it upside down and liked it much better that way. I have signed it on the back to accommodate the preferences of whoever adopts it...

Today's Quotation: "Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favors no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible."

I am very happy with this painting. This piece is painted on a smooth canvas panel which made it easier for my brush to flow smoothly and sensuously across the canvas. 

Once again, I let go and let the 'spirit' move me and my brush as I attempted to keep my over active brain out of the process. What I mean by this is...  I am aware of my  "Inner Critic" which is almost a constant companion, and if allowed, it will interfere and try stop my process of spontaneity.  I am often aware of my struggle between control and freedom, especially when I am painting...Are you surprised?

Today's Quotation: "There's a kind of miracle involved with paint. Its just this stuff in a tube... you squeeze out. It's this physical thing, yet you use it as a transforming agent."
