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.

To purchase and get complete information, click on the DETAILS link under each image.

I found these cute little frames and immediately envisioned my angel paintings framed in them. It was a good decision to purchase them. Here are just the first two that are available. I'll be posting more soon. 

They will make special and meaningful gifts.

"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.”

"Sunflower Patch"

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.

JUST SOLD!
(Thank you!)
"Glowing Garden" was painted with brush and palette knife. The palette knife added very nice texture and another type of spontaneous expression. There is less control with the knife. It's been  an interesting excursion in expanding my creative direction since I've been experimenting with the knife with both oil and acrylic paints.

This painting is an idea  I got when I cropped a much larger celestial painting which featured the moon. By now those of you who have been following my artwork must surely realize my special relationship with the moon. Often enough, when I think I've finished a painting, I'll get the impression to paint in a moon....love it!

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.


THE HAPPY GARDEN  was created plein air at the entrance to the famous Victoria Pool  
at Saratoga State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY. - my current and very beautiful home town! 

The flowers on my table in the photo with my painting gear were presented to me that afternoon by the man who plants all the beautiful floral displays throughout the park - he is truly an artist as well! This year's displays are the best ever.

As I was finishing up this painting, a woman passed by and loudly exclaimed how HAPPY this painting made her feel.....hence.....it's name!

8 x 10 inches
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.


Heaven's Healing Waters is another painting created spontaneously/intuitively from my imagination. I pick up my brush and begin painting spontaneously when I am not feeling particularly directed in any specific way. It is a VERY different creative experience vs. painting outdoors or having a specific subject in mind. These are always (usually) a pleasant surprise. The ones that aren't you've never seen.
