    I love this one, Marina. I absolutely love it! That’s all, just that I love it my dear friend, Penny xx (oh, okay for all the reasons I’ll bet you can figure out! lol)

    Many mirrors of the soul – how the compositions whispers the secret chambers of being human in bonds of silent perpetuity. My friend, your hands create utter truth. Love it !

    To me, the shades of purple in the ground bring forth life’s activity below the surface. 🙂

    I didn’t realize that you had such a variety of items for sale! I’m with Ken, I can’t wait to have money to stock my house with your beautiful work!!

  10. I promise you Marina, once I’m rich and famous (ha ha!) I’m buying a load of your artwork! A wonderful picture with a great theme which I think I’ve commented on more than once before. The colours are so rich and vibrant whilst the billowing mass below the ground makes me wonder ‘what is happening here?’ The deep purple colour seems almost menacing – like a storm brewing, hidden in the ground. Yet the greenness of the tree give no indication and suggest that actually life is still in control and with harness the power that is in the ground. Your work just makes me think, think think and feel, feel, feel – my favourite combinations! 🙂

    A wonderful one. Amazing. All of your stuff is great. The above/below idea is terrific. And this one is different but definitely a winner.

  12. Fergiemoto says:

    The tree is so happy inside and content on the outside! What a lovely painting again, Marina!

  13. Meanderer says:

    The close-up shots really show the beauty of the colour patterns and the blending. The roots remind me of a big puff-ball skirt! Beautiful.

  14. zorgor says:

    This tree is starting to look like an octopus! Very cool! 🙂

  15. Deb says:

    Lovely, lovely, as always, Marina! 🙂

  16. Lovely tree of life! I love how voluminous you made it look with the rich purple colour.
    It looks great on the clock!

  17. dilipnaidu says:

    Beautiful again! Thank you Marina.

    Oh, Marina! Another fantastic, soft, beautiful painting! Those colors!

    I have just made the connection to your work titles (better late than never) 🙂 I’ve been reading about “as above so below” here: as well as atoms, energy, creating in the mind first and then in the physical world, and knowing thyself. My mantra the last couple of weeks has been “To thine own self be true.” It seems we are on the same wave length and you express those thoughts so very beautifully! You are so inspiring! XOXO! ~Patricia

    • That’s a wonderful mantra to have!!!! The “as above so below” title came up as soon as I had finished the first one of the series. This title has so many readings & meanings, it’s astonishing! As for the “atom” series, that I owe to my hubby who came up with it. It’s amazing how a soul mate complements you! Thank you so much for your beautiful comment Patricia!!!! xxxxxxx 🙂

  19. Happy dancing roots getting ready to sprout their
    fall radiantly bright colors. So pretty …!!!!

  20. fgassette says:

    Beautiful designs. Love the tree of life image with deep purple roots. The color of royalty.


  21. Cat Forsley says:

    Love the purple – like a mist xo

  22. violetski says:

    Beautiful Marina!
    What I love in trees you draw are their roots. strong roots but tender in their colours.
    Love it♡

  23. great balance and lovely but unusual use of colour. reminds me of the story of Persephone – the colour of the pomegranate staining the roots of the tree when she descends to Hades each Autumn.

    How about a baseball cap? 🙂
