    • It’s all in the mind! Really. I used to be intimidated by watercolors but one fine day [!] gazed at my beautiful watercolor case full of vibrant little cubes and thought, hell, they’ll do it my way! So far, they’ve been kindly obedient! Anyway, that elephant you did, acquired much more control, so I know you can!

  1. hi Marina,
    “anthropos” Greek word for man,
    “he who looks up”
    let’s update:
    anthropos =
    homo sapiens – he who is wise”
    homo ludens – “he who likes to play”
    homo faber – “he who works”
    homo designus / designa =
    he / she – needing design for identity!

  2. The two things I like most about this painting are the pale leaves and stems and how this paleness drops them into the background. I just love the vibrancy of the flowers. You’ll have to tell me what they are so I can get some for my wife! They look so exotic!

    • You describe them so beautifully, Russ! Thank you!!!
      I’m afraid they’re a very rare kind called No39 of the atom flowers family!!!! Nearest neighbor could be a two colored tulip (?)! 🙂

  3. I really love this one Marina. Springtime plums, blues and purples dancing among the grasses.

  4. Marina these flowers are terrific, such movement and delicacy. If you have them, I would love to see the ‘draft’ copies before you arrive at the ‘complete’ composition. Your work is so suited to repeat pattern on fabric or wall papers. Gorgeous

    • Ah, thank you so much! I’m so glad you like it! I’m afraid the drafts have been recycled already!!! Interesting you should mention it though because it just occurred to me that I never look back. .. funny isn’t it?!
      On patterns, yes, I know. I like doing that too! Part of my “multiples” dissections!

  5. Chained and unchained melodies – love the purple -magenta duo! So refreshing is this composition! I can smell them from afar!!! Many hugs my friend.
