I began working on this painting outdoors en plein air last summer. I'd chosen another view of the landscape to paint but when I brought it home I didn't like what I'd done and  decided to paint the setting sun as I remembered it that day. I am happy with it now...

APPROACHING MARS, Original Oil Painting by Marina Petro Used To Illustrate The Book "Gulliver Of Mars"

What an honor it was to have my painting "APPROACHING MARS" chosen to grace the cover of the often reprinted book "Gulliver Of Mars." This is the second time Bottom Of the Hill Publishing has licensed one of my paintings for their book covers. Scroll down to see the full painting. 

"Gulliver Of Mars" (where I originated- Mars that is...) can be purchased by ordering it through any bookstore. All you'll need is the title and the publisher's name which is BOTTOM OF THE HILL PUBLISHING.

I realize the print on the book jacket is too small to read so I have typed the content just below here.....

From the back cover:
Edwin Lester Arnold (1857-1935) was an English author and son of the noted poet, journalist, Orientalist and author, Sir Edwin Arnold. Edwin Lester Arnold's first book was The Wonderful Adventures of Phra the Phoenician. However, even greater notoriety was to come.

Arnold was greatly impacted by Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, and was so taken by that book that he adapted that name to the hero of his final novel, Gulliver of Mars. The book was originally published in 1905, and was Arnold's last work of fiction because its initial reception was somewhat lukewarm. However it is believed that one individual…Edgar Rice Burroughs…was so impressed by the book that it inspired him to write his Barsoom series. 

The concept of Gulliver of Mars is unusual in that Gulliver Jones, while brave and clever, doesn't win every battle nor does he win the Martian Princess. The ending of the book will, however, surprise and hopefully please you. 

Gulliver of Mars by Edwin Lester Arnold is a book that should be read by every Sci-Fi and Fantasy fan. When you turn the last page we believe that you'll agree.

OR EMAIL ME HERE


"Low Down Sun" began as a plein air painting somewhere in the vicinity of Rock City Falls in upstate NY. I went painting with my friend Debbie who chose the location which I wasn't particularly fond of. I had a difficult time deciding on which view to choose for my painting and came to the conclusion there wasn't anything there I really wanted to paint other than the clouds in the sky which I did on location. It was just one of those restless episodes I go through on occasion which make it a real chore to discipline myself and focus. The trees were painted in my studio. I am happy with the result....

Hibiscus And Pear "Still Life Fruit And Floral Oil Painting" Original Art by Marina Petro

OR EMAIL ME HERE


This painting was a bit of a challenge...actually, many of them are. When there is a considerable amount of black and white in a painting such as this, I have to wait a few days in between sessions for each of these slow drying colors to set enough to paint over them.

On another note....Did you know the hibiscus flower can universally mean that it is a nice summer? In Europe, during the Victorian era and up to today, the meaning of the hibiscus flower is "delicate beauty." It is the state flower of Hawaii and generally given to visiting state officials. It's symbolizes Old Royalty and is a flower that brings power and respect. In Japan, it's meaning is "gentle."

"Granny Smith"
6 x 6 inches
Original oil painting on archival canvas panel
Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!


Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.

"Granny Smith" is so bright and cheerful I love looking at it. I am very fond of the fabric I used for the background and will most likely paint a larger painting using it as a backdrop again...perhaps with oranges and lemons...hhmmm...

I often see things in the completed painting that may have been obvious as I was painting it but didn't 'catch' them. With this one, it looks like the large leaf at the upper right is an animal with it's mouth wide open ready to consume poor old Granny Smith....and....at the upper left, the foliage looks like a butterfly. I actually ate the apple before the leaf monster could get her....Well folks, this is how I amuse myself ...

Celestial Symphony, "Night Sky, Original Skyscape Outer Space Oil Painting" by Marina Petro

"Celestial Symphony"
22 x 28 inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

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

"Celestial Symphony" is the painting I mentioned in yesterday's post. It is larger than 'Distant Light' and 'Eclipse' which are 16 x 20 inches and look simply stunning displayed on either side of this painting. Once again, the procedure I use is the same as with all of my celestial works....I dip my brush into the first color that I am attracted to and simply begin to paint moment to moment following my spirit until I've reached a state of harmony between color, shape, movement etc...on the canvas and there's nothing more I want to add or change....

"Distant Light" is the sister of "Eclipse Of The Moon" that I posted yesterday. They look beautiful side by side. There is a third larger one that is also related "Celestial Symphony" which I will post next time.

I love painting these celestial works. As I paint it feels like I am transcending earthly restrictions and flying freely through the universe.

Eclipse Of The Moon, Night Sky, Skyscape Oil Painting by Marina Petro

©Marina Petro

"Eclipse Of The Moon"
16 x 20 inches
Original oil painting on stretched canvas

SOLD

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


PURCHASE HERE  or EMAIL ME  for other options and inquiries. 

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


"Eclipse Of The Moon" is another  painting created intuitively moment to moment by choosing the first colors I am attracted to and beginning to paint spontaneously from my spirit. I am very happy with this painting.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow. This can only occur when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so with the earth in the middle. Therefore, a lunar eclipse can only occur the night of a full moon.

Several cultures have myths related to lunar eclipses. The Egyptians saw the eclipse as a sow swallowing the moon for a short time; other cultures view the eclipse as the moon being swallowed by other animals, such as a jaguar in Mayan tradition, or a three legged toad in China. Some societies thought it was a demon swallowing the moon, and that they could chase it away by throwing stones and curses at it....

Today's Quotation: "I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world. I may not ever complete the last one, but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower. I have been circling for thousands of years, and I still don't know: am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?"

This beautiful, peace evoking painting was inspired by a scene along Route 32 in the Town Of Saratoga one winter morning as I was driving toward Schuylerville, NY to a painting class. The photo cannot show the nuances of color, especially in the sky and the trees.  The trees in the foreground are a deep, rich green/violet. This is a truly beautiful work of art if I must say so myself!
