  1. 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)

  2. 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 !

  3. 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!!

  4. 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! 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

Happy to hear your thoughts
