  2. Arpon Files says:

    Diseños que reflejan vuestra sensibilidad y feminidad. Felicidades!!

  3. ProArtwork says:

    Just curious, do you sell some of your work similar to this on ebay with your personalize signature? May be a good idea, just saying. 🙂

  4. Nandini says:

    Wow, loved the colors, Marina. 🙂

  5. clinock says:

    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…

  6. ProArtwork says:

    Wow, this is so beautiful!

  7. 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

    • 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,

    Beautiful! Seems like a three dimensional collage!

  9. frizztext says:

    RED is always an eye catcher – though I like the blue of the Greek flag – and following interior designs …

  10. jakesprinter says:

    Beautiful post Marina , I love it 🙂

  11. munchow says:

    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.

  12. Francina says:

    Beautiful, Marina. I like the colours you used in this one.
    groetjes, Francina

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

  14. 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! 🙂

  15. aFrankAngle says:

    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. 🙂

  16. fgassette says:

    A little different from your usual but I love the simple design.


  17. a joy just visually following that line in its clarity and meanderings

  18. Very Zen. And impressive.

  19. zorgor says:

    Oooh! Haven’t seen a character in a long time! I really like this one! It’s a celebration of line! 🙂

  20. Reblogged this on filmcamera999 and commented:
    lov ethe simplicity on this!

  21. Fergiemoto says:

    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! 🙂

  22. It’ s a bit bitter and stimulating…..

  23. 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 😀

  24. mobius faith says:

    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.

  25. Cat Forsley says:

    gotta say – love how you make every design into clothes 🙂 xxx 🙂 it’s so brilliant xx
    🙂 🙂 🙂
    Love xo

  26. Dilip says:

    Abstract, Attractive and fascinating! Thanks again Marina.

  27. violetski says:

  28. Deb says:

    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. 🙂

  29. deCamville Design says:

    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

  30. Love the deep tones of green and red!

  31. tocksin says:

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

  32. Arindam Saha says:

    Amazing versatility! Amazing!

  33. fivereflections says:

    there is something special about this red

  34. I like this! I was digging around in your blog this am. I interpret it as freedom and confinement.

  35. 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
