JOYFUL BLOSSOMS-Original Abstract Palette Knife Flower Oil Painting by Marina Petro


                                                                                  ©Marina Petro
"Joyful Blossoms"
9 x 12 inches
Original oil painting on panel

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!
Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


"JOYFUL BLOSSOMS" is a bright and cheerful original palette knife painting rendered in oil. It will surely lift the spirit of anyone viewing it. There's plenty of texture too. I painted this piece from my ever active imagination spontaneously. What a joy it was!

I signed the painting in the horizontal position but then noticed it looked equally good in the vertical position so I've included both photos.

This painting is actually MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL without a doubt, in person. I just couldn't capture the richness of the colors and the beautiful turquoise background. Turquoise is such a problem to photograph.

Original Framed Colorful Floral Ink Paintings by Marina Petro

"Delicate Beauty"


"Butterfly And Flowers"

ORIGINAL INK PAINTINGS-FRAMED
Only five available

Image ~ 5 x 7 inches
Frame ~ 7.5 x 9.5 inches

$75 each ~ great gifts!


These ink paintings were such a pleasant surprise! 
I created them a while back with India ink. Once again, I began with nothing in mind and just let the paint sort of direct me through completion. It was exciting to say the least. I’ve given many of them as gifts. Loved the look of surprise and joy on the recipients faces! 

Today's Quotation: "When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge."

ANGEL and PHOENIX Miniature Framed Art Prints by Marina Petro

"Angel Of Love"

"The Phoenix Rising"

I was very happy to find these lovely miniature frames in a variety of finishes for my angel prints....but...I am not so happy now because the frames are no longer available anywhere. My supplier is not carrying them anymore and I didn't purchase enough to keep them as an ongoing item which was my intention...oh well. 

Initially I am making only one of each available so if you are interested, better purchase it soon. If you'd like more than one of any of them, let me know and if there are frames left I will be glad to accommodate you.

"Captive Angel" Abstract Fantasy Angel Painting by Marina Petro

"Captive Angel"
       
20 x 24 inches
Original acrylic painting on stretched canvas

Only one in the entire universe...and it could be yours!
Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


Full of symbolism, "Captive Angel" is from my Paintings From "The Zone" Series. A series of 29 paintings, thus far, which were created moment to moment without any forethought. I consider these paintings ultra original works of art. Try as you might, you won't find anything like these anywhere! Great conversation pieces. This is the type of artwork that you will always find something new when you view it. I still do and I painted them!!!

As I begin each painting, it is with the intention of keeping my mind as clear and free of any preconceived ideas and just dip my brush into the first color that attracts me and follow the movement from brain to hand to canvas or paper. The results are always fascinating...a complete surprise!

Today's Quotation:  “It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”

Original oil painting on stretched canvas

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

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


"Sunflower Patch" is another painting created at the beautiful Saratoga State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY. The flower displays seem to be waning a bit and I have a few other locations I am considering painting at. The park just might refresh their beautiful displays with autumn plantings though...we'll see. 

Can you feel the joy in this painting? I was so happy and thankful to have found this exceptionally beautiful location to paint this summer. Plein air painting is quite a different experience than my usual studio painting and I hope to get much better at it as time goes by.
