  1. Powerfully sensitive as all of your art Marina – the line dances on the stage of passion and nature as we all wish to do instead of sitting in the audience…

  2. Read the warp and weft in a plastic construction, as in a frame where the red cloth, the hope is sublimated by the paintings, even dom, but living daily life, nourishes and gives a lot of hope for the future. a hope that is the triumph of color and sense of artistry.
    But here’s the miracle: Qyello with a frame, but the expression vineyards, transposed on a sheet of paper with the colri oil.

    The correspondence with the infinite “color”, within the marked presence of the infinite feeling.

    Modern, progressive and unique.

    A delight in a few strokes, reaches the eyes to satisfy the mind.

    You’re really good in your expressions of poetry … painted!
    Very nice.

    A hug and …. Friendliness

    ( From Gaza City – Tel Aviv, exclusively, for Marina Kanavaki ).

    Σας εύχομαι μια ήσυχη νύχτα.
    Γεια σας

    • Dear Ninni,
      I am once again honored and even more so from the mere fact of your location right now!
      Thank you so much and please please keep safe!
      I also wish you a quiet night and days to follow…
      May peace prevail.
      Thank you kindly,

  3. I am really impressed with what you can achieve with only a few strokes of the brushes. The design is gorgeous and makes me feel connected to earth.

  4. Marina!! you are soooooooooo gifted .(hahaha)…you know you are of course..Where are you??
    All items are highly inspired as usual! xxxx

  5. I love these abstract paintings more than anything else of yours Marina. The shades you’ve chosen here are just lovely and the curves to that line (or face or whatever it is meant to be!) are just perfect. Another great piece! 🙂

  6. As I tell Mobius Terry all the time, shades of rust are my favorites. However, here is it the green frame and the zen-like ribbon that bring those shades to the forefront. 🙂

  7. Looking at this image, I immediately saw the profile of Popeye the Sailor Man without his pipe and a can of spinach! Such a wonderfully bold portrait. I love the colors. Well done, Marina! 🙂

  8. I’m used to get, year after year (or sometime twice) a new Moleskine (black, of course)…
    but I would be tented by your “journal” offer!
    Simply wonderful, my congratulations Marina 😀

  9. This is brilliant Marina. I love how you used the colors to set a bold structured reality – a framing for life. And I love the curves of the line for your “character” which contrasts with presumptive constraint of the background. And especially I love how the line goes outside the structure – life cannot be constrained/restrained no matter how people may try to shape that life – life is free to do what it wills. Thanks for this beautiful image.

  10. Mariana, you are so talented. You can take the most simple designs and make them all look fantastic on products….You’re very gifted. 🙂
    I love this design too. 🙂

  11. Marina, I love this! It’s so strong and bold, but soft and feminine. Great red/green combo and I love the line weight of the character with the boldness of the brushstrokes. You obviously have innate talent! It’s magnificent! ~xoxo! Patricia

    • Ah, thank you soooooooo much Patricia!!! 😳 🙂 🙂 🙂
      That line was made by a beautiful chunky charcoal stick [I’m in love with them!]
      many many xxxx and big 😀 !

  12. you are on to something here that approaches the east in sensibilty where real is abstract and abstract is real.

  13. I?m impressed, I need to say. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for something referring to this.

Happy to hear your thoughts
