    Great art! Keep up the good work? 🙂

  2. Beautiful shades of green and yellow with the flowing line of a facial profile. Yes I know it’s there 🙂

  3. WordsFallFromMyEyes says:

    This is very interesting, & I really like it. The colour, the shape, the outline of a woman’s profile in the line down the middle – really like it. (video diary of me stepping toward sobriety) &

    I’m a fan of this amazing painter, a big fan of her art. Just like our writings, her art reflects her heart. Kudos to you, Marina!

  8. Really beautiful simplicity!

    Goodness Marina ! I am getting confused as to which is my favourite composition thusfar — ALL ! ” Character 16″ weaves dreams and cuts right through…paradox. Love the oil texture, it’s brilliant. In this piece, there is a pull between union and release. Ah, what a beauty, this Character 16! Stay gold, my dear friend! Cheers.

    LOVE this piece! Your work reflects just how refreshing you are as well. Love it! Wowee.. and I’m real picky about art too.. wow!


  11. You should name it ”The kiss”
    It’s perfect!

  12. Do you prime the paper? I see that the oil isn’t spreading. Nice painting 🙂

  13. frizztext says:

    clear minimalism! better than any diffuse politics!

  14. My one word response: WOW!

  15. Fergiemoto says:

    I definitely saw the two different faces immediately, one being on the “darker” side, and the other on the “sunnier” side. Nicely done! I don’t know why, but the green and yellow are making me think of a banana leaf, which I can’t see having anything to do with the image.

  16. Jayanth says:

    your version of the ‘yin-yang’ huh! i think its wonderful!!

  17. Thank you marina to follow me blog.
    A good mix of two different impressions here, in my view…
    Colours also have a nature…

  18. positive and negative at its best – well done ….

  19. aFrankAngle says:

    The two faces is intriguing. Outside of the color differences, I don’t see the two moods … then again, maybe that’s it. Well done Marina!

  20. Deb says:

    I see two faces, but more so on the yellow side. Your clever line down the center is what created them. 🙂

    Love it, like spring and summer greeting each other with a rush.
