"My Brain" ~ Jury's Favorite 15%

©Marina Petro
From The Zone Series ~ "My Brain"

Prints on paper and canvas are available in several sizes~contact me for details

What a lovely surprise!! I just received an email informing me that a painting I entered in the May 2019 BoldBrush Painting competition at Fine Art Studios Online is one of the jury's favorite 15% of all the entries. 

The painting is From The Zone Series "My Brain" originally painted with tempera paint on  22"x28" paper. It is now available as a print. 

This painting was created as the result of a very strong impression I received to paint an abstract depiction of my brain. I chose the first color I was attracted to ....tuned into my brain....and began to paint non-stop until the painting was finished. 

So, take a good look and try to imagine what it is like being in my brain....Maybe you'd like to try your hand at painting your brain....

In any case, have fun if you try either!!

Today's Quotation: "To have taken up painting, no matter at what age, or point in one's life, is to have entered into a new and deeper awareness of the whole meaning of existence, to have tasted spiritual refreshment, and to have found the perfect form of creative relaxation."

VIEW FROM WIAWAKA-Lake George, Original Oil Painting by Marina Petro

"View From Wiawaka~Lake George"
14x11 inches
Original plein air oil painting on stretched canvas

Certificate Of Authenticity provided with every original painting.

The weather forecast was grim with severe thunderstorms predicted  the morning I decided to drive to Lake George, NY to paint this beautiful lake from the dock at Wiawaka Center For Women. The Wiawaka center is a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the lives of women.

As it turned out, it was the most beautiful, peaceful morning and perfect painting experience. The scene was overcast and the distant hills were muted in beautiful silver shades. I sat on the dock painting, enraptured by the sound of the water lapping rhythmically as it met with the dock and shore. I hope my 'close to but not quite'experience of Nirvana is transmitted through this work of art...I will certainly paint there again this summer, God willing...
