A few days ago, I got an invitation from Alexandra for an interview [a conversation between two artists].
Needless to say how honored and happy I was by her kind gesture.
You can read our conversation / interview here: “DISCOVER… MARINA KANAVAKI”
To introduce her, I chose to share with you her very own words:
My perfect day consists of A list of not-to-do stuff With canvases the whitest Paint brushes the cleanest Colors all the brightest Imagination at its fullest Creativity will leave no space For the ever avoidable mistake Only pencil at its pointiest Eraser will have no place My perfect day consists of Inspiration setting course For my spirit to take flight To the land of possibilities Where all dreams come into sight My perfect day consists of No limits to deter me no obstacles to defy me I just need to be there and be grateful and be giving of be the best me I can be
Make sure to visit her wonderful blog: ACT. REACT. or just THINK about it!
Thank you, my dear Alexandra, from my heart! 🙂

…”My perfect day consists of
No limits to deter me
no obstacles to defy me
I just need to be there
and be grateful
and be giving
of be the best me I can be”,
I love that Marina, so well said, so true, so creative and yes, why not…So inspiring!
Yes, Alexandra’s poem is beautiful and truly inspiring! That’s exactly why I chose it as an introduction to her.
Thank you, George.
My pleasure Marina!
Enjoyed learning more about you Marina! Your music is beautiful! Was unaware you had three albums out already!! Congratulations and all the best for the future 🙂
Thank you so much for your warm wishes, Madhu and I’m very happy you enjoyed the interview. Have a great new week!!
Marina, I enjoyed reading that interview. That was great 🙂 I love piano.
Ah, so happy to hear that, Noeleen! We do too!!!
very interesting, Marina 🙂
we have music and painting in common.
Happy to hear that, Cha!!! 🙂 🙂
Marina, loved that interview, I learnt such alot.. 😉 and love your music! 🙂
Ah, thank you, my dear Sue!!
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
Wowwwww! My precious one, just read the interview and I am delighted to greet your success!
Totally relished the interview – a smooth flow of engaging conversation!
Am soooooo very proud of you –but you already know this!
Much triumphant moments await you, my dearest Marina. 🙂
*shaheen smilin’ all the way for you*.
Lotsa’ hugs & love.
I am sending you many many hugs back and kisses and even more so because I know what it means visiting wp again. Thank you very much, my dear friend! !
🙂 🙂 🙂
You are an incredibly talented writer (of course, should have guessed).. I hope you share your writings alongside your beautiful art as well. 😀
Ah, my dear Pink, I do consider my use of words pretty poor, but thank you all the same for your kindness. 🙂
You’re incredibly talented! You words are like the brush to convey what is in your heart. Keep writing! Totally inspiring! Besides, we are our own harshest critics.. 😀
My dear dear Pink, could you be confusing Alexandra’s poem as mine? I wanted to honor her interest in interviewing me by saying a few things about her, but then I came across this beautiful poem she wrote and I thought it would be much better than anything I’d say. I agree about us being our own harshest critics and I think it’s right too! Thank you for all your kind words, my dear!
hmmmmm…. perhaps.. whoops.. but i still see lots of great poetry in your work… and i’m fairly sure i had read some of yours too! I will await your next piece and shower you with praises.. hahaha
You are so nice, Pink! Thank you so much. What you sense might be my music nature. Music is in some ways poetry.
Have a beautiful day and dawning of a new month!
Yes! A new month, a new start! August always seems to have that affect on me for some reason… You are a beautiful artist! Lyrics dancing beautifully on the page of color! 😀
Terrific interview. Great!
Thank you, Stephen! Not into speaking about me but Alexandra was so sweet… 🙂
Yes, she was.
A Dream Of A Day….
Yep, A Dream Of A Day!!
Thank you for your visit.
Thank you for the introduction to Alexandra, whom I’m now following with as much interest as I follow you!
I am very happy to hear that!!! 🙂
A wonderful intro!
Thank you, Hook!!!
I like your intro very much:
“My perfect day consists of
A list of not-to-do stuff…”
– perfect start of a day!
I thought so too, that’s why I chose this -Alexandra’s own words- to introduce her.
Thank you, Frizz!
This was a fascinating interview – I had no idea you had made albums! Please give links to where I can buy and download them – I may not be able to afford or get hold of your artwork (yet…one day) but I can certainly listen to your music 🙂
Ah, thank you, Ken!
You can listen all 3 albums @ http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/MKO. Our official site: mk-o.com is being updated, but you can see and listen there too.
🙂 Have a great Sunday!
My person says that sounds like a perfect day, but I’d like to add some fish to make it perfect. It was fun to read your interview.
Ah, true Bongo, but not everyone knows that!
Thank you for hopping over to read it. A special fish delivery coming your way!
Alexandra’s quote gave me chills up my spine, the weather is perfect sunshine, bright blue sky, and the peaches are almost ripe!!! I am happy to report that it is fitting like a bow string on a handmade recurve to have you, as my first follower on smilove! Thank you Marina! This post rocked!!!!!
You never cease to amaze me, Benjamin! Thank YOU, my friend for your beautiful comment!!
Welcome to it you are! We are as two, in a field of nothing, called a new canvas!!

It’s a beautiful poem, Alexandra and as soon as I read it I thought that any other kind of introduction wouldn’t be as good! Thank you again for this conversation, my dear. I am truly honored. Happy remaining Thursday!

You are a multi talent young woman … and I love the post with the interview – learned some more about you. Your poem is beautiful .. and I love the photo you’re using. Just so colorful and full of mixtures of colors … as you as a person are.
Ah, thank you, my dear Viveka. The poem is Alexandra’s. I posted it here because I thought it was a nice way to introduce her to you. Poem and photo are exactly as they appear in her blog. She is a very kind soul!
Hi Mariina , this is a unique and interesting post.Thank you for liking my post (Fascinating Art..) you have a fascinating art form.Your paintings and your imaginations for choosing your colors is an art by itself.Sincerely jalal
Thank you very much, Jalal for your kind words.
Awesome! I’ve always wondered about your inspiration because you seem to have an endless creative output! Music and art have such an intense relationship that I’ve only begun to touch the surface of. Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to have one of your prints in my home:)
Thank you so much, Eric! Even though to me it’s a one way relationship, I do agree, it’s intense! I can’t tell you how flattered I am to hear that you -a very talented photographer / artist who’s incredible compositions I admire- would like to have a print of my work.
Hello Marina! I loved reading the interview – very interesting – you are so talented – I am happy to learn more about your artistic life! Many Happy Regards! Nawfal

What a beautiful and inspiring poem! I love those palettes too, with the paints all together creating their own composition. Thank you for sharing this Marina, and have wonderful creative day! ~xxxxx!
She is an inspiring person and I was thrilled to have that artistic “chat” with her. You too have a great and very creative day, my dear Patricia. Can’t wait to see more of your amazing work!
Just returned after learning the role music plays in your life and its inspiration in your art. 🙂
Ah, thank you for reading, Frank!

Beautiful to read, you are an inspiration – will go check out her blog.

Soooooo. I read the interview Marina, just excellent, listened to the music … blown away, I had been curious re: POD and your products, but can also see the future where all is original from scratch to completion (pure creativity, no boundaries to conform within)! In closing … read my thoughts and emotions I’m feeling right now about your talent and creativity and your “soul of things” … yes exactly, dear friend of mine. xo
Wow Penny!!! Read them, my dear and I’m speechless!!!
