Face on Yellow Crying Red
Original size: 10×14,5cm
from marina’s “Characters” © marina kanavaki
Note: As this is an original work, it is bound to have “imperfections”. In this case very few of them were retouched or cleaned, as I felt they added to the composition.

Wonderful work, glad to discover your creations. Have a lovely day
Ah, thank you so much! Very happy to discover your creations too!
Enjoy a beautiful June! 🙂
Thank you Marina, really glad that you liked our work 🙂 have a lovely month !
I enjoy the energy of abstract art, one can produce such enchanting pieces of art and allow the inner mind to focus on realism, and yet still embrace the fantasy that lives beyond the edge of reality 🙂 An awesome example here…
What an insightful comment! Beautifully put! So glad you like it! Thank you, Andro!! 🙂
still house-moving marina or is it all done now?
Haven’t started yet!!!! I can tell you though I wish it was all over by now! Enjoy your visit to England. 🙂
oh..i thought youd already started! 🙂 yes, im looking fwd to my visit to england…i’ll buy some cadburys whole nut for you there…! the british still make the best chocolate anywhere…better than swiss, american (herscheys..yuk!) etc
you haven’t tasted greek ones! Honestly, I was a huge fan of cadburys but I think our ION with almonds is one of a kind. I wonder if it’s possible to mail food nowadays without it being bombarded with radiation or being held at customs as a dangerous item! If not, then I’ll send you one for a comparison! 🙂
haha! thats very very kind of u , marina!
i got a feeling it would probably be held up in customs!
i really didnt know that there is such thing as greek chocolate…i always thought british stuff was the best!
i still love cadburys whole nut, fruit & nut etc!
last time i was in the uk, i went into sainsburys and bought several giant bars of whole nut….i think theyre about 30cm by 15cm…huge!
and i just put them in my suitcase amongst the clothes etc and got thru customs ok…!
chocolate addicts…whatever next LOL! ya sous, marina!
Well, on your next visit, be sure to try it. I know how strange it may sound “greek chocolate” but never underestimate a chocolate addict!!! 😉
Till then, enjoy lots of massive cads!!!! 🙂
LOL! last time i was in greece, all we tried, and lots of it, was the usual stuff…you know…baklava, dolmades, papoutsakia, and of course, plenty of greek salads! now you got my mouth watering!
Thanks for taking some close shots. It’s always nice to see the detail in paintings.
Thank you, Ian, I’m glad you like the idea. I’ve always found details very interesting.
Wow! This painting brings back a very vivid memory: I had just sliced up a red pepper, and someone bet me I couldn’t put all the little sticks in my mouth at the same time. Well! Guess I showed them… : )
Love the extreme close-ups with all the tiny cracks and other exciting detail. Yes, they all contribute to the dynamism of the work. There is no such thing as an imperfection in a Marina Kanavaki painting. I’m an art expert, and I know about these things… : )
The part about you being an art expert, I know, and a brilliant artist as well, it’s the other one about imperfection that’s got my gear going nuts… mechanism’s gone berserk!
Thank you, my friend!
I was wondering about that piece of red paper… was it printed, was it karmin or vermillion red, what did it taste like, its thickness and texture, did it have any message or drawing on, what was the prize of the bet and finally the expression of the challenger!! You do realize of course that the perfect response to the above would be a Mark drawing, don’t you?!!!! 🙂
Red paper?? No, no– it was a red pepper!! I only eat red paper if I run out of red peppers… : )
It was an exciting challenge– I’ll see if I can sketch it up from memory… : )
See, that’s what art does to you!!! Everything translates to color pigments and paper… duh!
It just shows how dedicated you are to your craft– no wonder you’re a living legend!! : )
what lined up for the weekend?
good morning Jak… work work and then …work!!!!
not more work..!
whatever happened to that laid back greek way of life…or am i in a dreamworld…LOL
yes, well, I failed to mention that I have never experienced that style. Excluding school years…
😆 My “laid back” moments are either when I paint or write music, my dreamworld. Lucky those moments expand in time, so that an instant feels like an hour! 🙂
thats really surprising.that youve never experienced the relaxed lifestyle thats prevalent in greece, and in general, the mediterranean countries…i mean, coming form crete, it must have been pretty hard to avoid not joining everyone else who lived the easy life…mind you, none of us know what circumstances the next person lives under, so its hard to comment….
I grew up and still live in Athens. As in any city, one is forced to live under hectic rhythms. To this you may add my personal perversity of always keeping busy!!! 🙂
Hello Marina. I was just looking at your t-shirts. I wonder how much it would cost to ship one to Colombia, South America?
Oh, thank you JK!! Shipping cost at Society 6 to Colombia [I think] is 10$ however they offer free shipping worldwide twice every month. Check in here and you’ll see it mentioned on the SOCIETY 6 button.
Cafe Press charge appx 7$ for most places.
Have a beautiful Monday and new week!
Thank you. That sound pretty reasonable. I was looking at the long-sleeve dark colored “Paths of Color.” Those are your works? I was wondering if you had something a long haired hippie fellow, xl, might wear while jogging at three in the morning?
…three in the morning?!!! Actually, sounds like a great time – although [if I could pull myself out of bed] I’d go for 4. All trees and plants exhale as they awaken during that time – in short: best quality oxygen! Unfortunately Society 6 don’t have long sleeve tees [except hoodies] but if you have a look here [http://www.cafepress.com/marinasartshop/10357903] you’ll see a few [many sizes!]. Let me know what you think!
I was just looking at the Society Six and I don’t much care for hoodies. Back to the Art Shop. I didn’t know that about the trees and plants exhaling at that time. All I knew is that, due to that hour, there are not many people or vehicles out and so the air seems really fresh and clean. It is very peaceful. You should get up at three once a month and go jogging. Thank you for your reply.
You are very welcome.
I wish you great night joggings! 🙂
Thank you. You might see Aristotle, Gorgias or Socrates walking around at that hour, in the fresh air. Gorgias might be more fun to meet.
Ah, I see you are familiar with the bunch! That’s some great company to have! Well, I see Socrates all the time – married to him!! 😉
Adore the colours Marina. Vibrant and powerful.The red pouring out of the mouth is a bit disturbing though, evocative of a scream!! 🙂
I know, my dear Madhu, it had very much to do with ‘disturbing speech’, or scream as you say. I’m so glad you ‘understand’ it! 🙂
I love the power and emotion expressed, Marina, and the vibrant colors are gorgeous! Hugs!
Lauren, I’m so happy to hear hear that! Thank you, my dear.
Hugs and xxxx 🙂
Very expressive, & up close such beautiful colour.
Ah, Noeleen, thank you so much, my dear!
I like the texture.
Thank you! 🙂
I like the yellow face, and out of her (his?) mouth came fiery soul music!
…in a way, yes!
Thank you, Frizz!
Have a fingerpicking weekend! 😉
Cool combination of colors
Thank you very much!
Love it , Marina! Love the yellow color that make this painting so magnificent and special ❤
Thank you, Violet. I’m so happy you like it, my dear!
As always, unforgettable.
Thank you, again, my friend!
A very emotional work there!
Yes, Rumpy! 🙂 Happy Wednesdsy!
Expression comes in many forms, and this to me expresses ‘release’…The letting go of, 🙂
Wishing you a wonderful rest of your week Marina,.. 🙂
…and away! Thank you, my dear Sue.
A wonderful rest of the week to you too!
love 🙂 xx!
magnificent ! quite an analysis of textures and themes!
I did get carried away with those details, didn’t I?!!
Thank you, Deborah!
No, not at all, your yellow art is aggressive but mindful in its gold/mustard deliberate sun-filled pull! The red adds vibrant throbbing life. Thank You !
🙂 !!!!! What a beautiful comment…
Lovely and striking. At first I did not see the face, but something else. But is that not the beauty of art, to see what we want to see? BTW, I saw a fanciful bird with a bright red tail.
I love that!! Thank you Donna! Now I see it too!
Wow! Such power rendered with pure elegance!
That means a lot coming from you, Elena!!
This is a wonderful expression in painting, Marina! I like very much! 🙂
Thank you, Nawfal, so happy to hear that!!
Absolutely fabulous, Marina.
Thank you, Sylvia! 🙂
Have a fabulous Tuesday!
Different from your usual work. I see in this work a release of something that has been surpressed and coming out in a burst of energy. Well done!
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Out and gone with it!!! Thank you, Francine!
Have a beautiful Tuesday!
Exciting, vibrant colors and textures galore! Wonderful piece –
Ah, Mary, thank you, my dear! 🙂 !!
I love it!…Love the yellows, and the cracks in it!
Have a beautiful day! 🙂
You too, Deb! Thank you so much! I’m happy to hear that!
This is different from your earlier works .beautiful as always..Marina 🙂
Thank you, Sriram! 🙂 🙂
I like the texture the cracking brings. It brakes up the color and draws the eye in. Lovely.
Ah, thank you, Jasmine. I’ve always found paint cracks very interesting! I’m glad you like it.
I do like it. I love COLOR and abstract so I’m THERE!!!
Brave MArina – I wonder why gouache cracked?
Thank you, Lesley!!!
It was used straight from the tube on paper and when it dried I intentionally fiddled with the paper so that it cracks!
Ahhh. I was thinking chemistry rather than the obvious 🙂
Beautiful! I see the face 🙂 Bright colors – great!
Thank you, Christy! So glad you like it!!
This is different to what I have seen from you before – but I like it .. it’s very bold and powerful, full of emotions. Very powerful … mad and angry. Excellent. The color are just fantastic .. yellow and red in combination is the colors even more stronger. In Sweden Yellow stands for danger.
Yes, the language of colors is increddible… this combination can mean anger among so many other things. Thank you, Viveka. I am happy you like it!
Happy new week!
Marina, very interesting to see some different art and creations from you. I think colors talks to me first when it’s about art. You know me I love to live in a colorful world.
Totally agree with you about the language of colors. Very powerful.
I know you love color, my dear Viveka!!! Your pages are always choke full of it! 🙂
Happy colorful Tuesday!
Same to you, Marina
Love the close-up details / textures, Marina
Ah, that is good to hear… I got a bit carried away with them!!
A powerful, thought-provoking piece. The eyes pull in the viewer.
Thank you, my dear Cynthia! 🙂 !!
Love this powerful yellow love the brain behind those colours mix.
Something about that Yellow Marina 😉 ……..

Now you mention it… they were on a riot!!! 🙂
Thank you, Dilip for your kind comment and support.
It means a lot! 🙂
A revisit Marina to appreciate it more. A beautiful creation remains immortal!
Awww, thank you so much, my dear friend!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂
Stunningly simple but so striking!
Thank you so much!! 🙂
Have a great week!
Another one from the darker days from the past? One with bad breath? 😉 On the serious side, the eyes are the emotional key on this one.
Darker they maybe, but -as I was saying to Patricia- I look at it and smile now!
Thank you, Frank! Happy leftie – err elephant relaxing week!
[trust a hidden leftie to mix up everything!] 😆
It’s important to look back with a smile!
This is very emotional, Marina, and the composition is really fabulous – strong angry crying lines – great piece! Have a wonderful day! ~xxxxx
Ah, thank you so much, my dear Patricia. yes it is an emotional piece but time is a strange thing. I can see it now and smile! You too have a wonderful Monday and new week!
And that is how us artists help transform ourselves and the world! Happy Monday, Marina! ~xoxo!!!!
There is so much pace in this piece Marina – love it
