Happy August 1st!!!
I usually welcome months with one of my “Atom Flowers”,
but as we’re in the heart of summer,
I thought I’d make an exception.

Your watercolors are so beautiful, and this one is perfect with the summery colors!
Thank you, Madame Weebles. I am very glad you like this!
Happy rest of summer!
it has been one of those weekends here…got nothing much done..just lazed around…!
Back in the “old ages” this used to be normal!
😉 …so I think that’s good!!
yes, marina….when i was in crete many years ago, i really loved their way of life there….very, very slow and easy….!
True, this way they get to live much longer than the rest of us!!! 😆
well…they were certainly more relaxed than the mainlanders for sure…! take care!
Lovely and refreshing!
In interior design, I find blue the hardest to work with. It looks so different from a small patch to a larger surface, from wet to dry. You seem to handle it so well Marina! 🙂
You are right. Blue is a difficult color and one I am not particularly fond of (prussian, sea blue and turquoise excluded). So maybe in my effort to make it look good to me, I achieve ‘nicer’ blues!
I’m glad you like it, Madhu. Thank you!
You have a wonderful ability to make simple strokes with your brush look stunning…. beautiful… really Beautiful Marina… xox Sue
Ah, thank you so much, Sue, for this beautiful compliment! I must confess they are easier to me than knitting sleeves!!! 😆 xxxx
Beautiful water colours
So very calming, definitely one of my favorites
Thank you, sweet Pink!
You inspire me, Marvelous Marina!
In October, 1494, the twenty-three Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), of Nuremberg, came in Italy to Venice.
Going to Italy, Dürer painted watercolor views of some of the places he encountered: the city of Innsbruck, a landscape in Ponte Gardena, the castle of Segonzano in Cembra valley.
Other spring of the following year he painted the itinerary of return: Arco and its cliff, the Buonconsiglio Castle and the city of Trento, a view of Klausen.
Atom sea #9: The transparency, the delicate harmony of thin layers of color from blue to green in a set of colors that fascinates; bright areas, leaving clearer obtained reveal the white of the paper, are the characteristics of your painting, dear Marina. A painting that I take inside, slowly leaving the place to the sweetness of the whole.
Just as Dürer. But here we are in the presence of the art of Marina!
The delicate effects and transparency, made with tiny “gocciature” (shades) of color, create an atmosphere that does not have the oil paintings.
This is Marina.
Cleaning, beauty and … sense of the Infinite!
Thank you for all this.
How you manage to leave me speechless every time you write your impressions on one of my paintings, I do not know.
My dear, kind Ninni, your words move me and I feel blessed to know you. You flatter me too much, but I am happy that something I’ve done has brought you some joy. I thank you, for the extraordinary kindness and sweetness of your words.
Thank you very much, Rob!
simply beautifully captured shots…lovely!
Thank you, Kalyan! 🙂
Sea Born = Marina = indeed, a wonderful name!
Ah, thank you, Frizz! 🙂
Blue is beautiful.
I agree, Hook, it is a beautiful color!
This should be called after your name~ Marina– sea coast… this is refreshing and reflective in its refrain ! Glorious !
🙂 🙂 !!!!
I suppose something from my name (sea born) must have been subconsciously projected! I’ve always had a fondness for the sea, feel drawn to it. Thank you my dear Deborah. Have a refreshing Sunday!
Absolutely brilliant blues Marina! Love the tiny touch of green:)
Somehow I thought you’d notice it!! Thank you so much, Elena. Makes me very happy to hear that!
Mi color favorito asociado a bellas imágenes. Un abrazo
Estoy muy feliz de escuchar eso! Muchas gracias y feliz fin de semana.
They say that blue is the color of hope… Beautiful surfing through the waves, Marina 🙂
That is beautiful, Ese. Thank you so much! 🙂
Happy surfing!!! 🙂
We are on the same wavelength – summer and the water . Vacation time. Although you have beautiful clear water all year round. Love taking close-up pictures.
Yes… summer and the water. Hopefuly we’ll visit those clear waters sometime soon.
Happy holidays my dear! 🙂
So many beautiful curves and arcs of blue dancing amid amethyst shades and hues.
Happy August … how quickly the months are traveling through our lives …!!!!
Indeed, Isadora. Maybe it’s time WE traveled through the months on our own pace. Wouldn’t that be nice?!
Thank you for your beautiful words, my dear.
Happy August travels!
And a Happy August 1st to you, too. But, by the time you read this, it’ll be August 2. So. To make a long comment short, Happy August. See you on the beach!
Ah, the beach… It’s times like these that I feel blessed to have an imaginative and creative brain. I can visit any beach instantly! 🙂 Happy August August Meditations!
The rich blues are awesome.
Glad you like them, Bongo. They are also thunder free and full of …FISH!
I was going to ask you about the fish.
Marina some super design I love it and easily could deep in it, love those colours.
Ah, very happy to hear that, Doron! Thank you!
Amazed again how sections and enlargements of your watercolors stand on their own.
Thank you, Stephen. I’m glad you like those details!
Have a great August! 🙂
I am glad you are back with the flowers. Blue is my favorite color choice for flowers I think because it is more rare than other colors. This should be a good seller because so many people love blue.
Thank you, my dear Donna! It is actually an “Atom Sea”, but since they do have the “Atom” part in common, you could say it’s a sea flower! I’m so glad you like it. I do remember your fondness to blue flowers.
Happy August! 🙂
I love this one. I see the ocean, the sky, flowers and snow. It’s so peaceful too:)
“ocean, the sky, flowers and snow”!!!! What a beautiful thing to say, Eric! Thank you!!!! 🙂
The most lovely and fresh summer wishes… Wonderful palette! It is so perfect for this month! Happy August Marina 🙂 big hug and my admiration Alexandra
Ah, thank you so much, my dear. A sparkling happy August to you, Alexandra! Hugs back!!!! + xxxxx 🙂
look what I’ve found: two famous musicians in Athens!
[I was in London back then!]
Brilliant, Marina!!! Very creative, beautiful colors!!!
Thank you very much, Pedro! Very glad you like it.
Brilliant design! I love the 3-d nature of flowers and your cool colors used to keep us comfortable in a very hot month of summer! Happy August!
Thank you so much, Mary and Happy Blogging Anniversary, my dear!!!! Here’s to many more!
Thank you so much Marina!
Most welcome Marina 🙂
This is beautiful work, Marina! Great colors and design!

I love your Atom Sea, Marina! All those wonderful shades of blue, very creatively layered, making a most beautiful splash. A very happy August to you, my dear friend! ~xoxo!!!
The visit to the sea on one hand and your amazing pools on the other… a natural outcome! I’m so glad you like it, my dear Patricia!
Have a joyful and creative August!
