  1. Year after year, the trees transform and renew themselves – similar to humans continually transforming ourselves based on our circumstances. Lovely series, Marina!

    • It’s weird how different they look in a small size huh? If you look closely the 3rd one of the little trees, is the one on top of the page (fortune tree #3)!!
      Thank you, so much for your kind support, Frzncina!!!!
      Have a great week! xxxx

  2. Hi Marina,

    I really like the sense of movement swirling around the crown of this tree. Like birds flocking about or fish swarming. In fact, I believe that is a green fish a little to the right of 12 o’clock at the top. 🙂

    • What a beautiful comment my dear friend!! As I was doing them I had a feeling of abundance and good fortune …and leaves kept coming!! 🙂
      Thank you so much, Patricia and may your week be happy and full of good fortune as well!
      🙂 xxxxx

  3. Stunning, indeed! A dancing tree of life – it’s resilient growth to endure restores the meaning of gentle hope, strength against all odds. The Fortune Tree depicts a very brave human in you. And, well, the brave go where they please — I am sure you shall reach the zenith of such a tree, it is your friend’s wish for you. xxxxxx

      • And, you…. are such a lovely musician – which I just discovered today! MK-O !! Ten thumbs up! Thus, I MUST get a hold of your music…how? Please do advise where can I purchase here in Toronto? And, if the music has not reached Canada – well, let’s do something about it ! What a talent you are – beautiful and full of creative/intelligent parts that make you shine! Proud of you, my friend!!! xxxxxx
        p.s. my home is open to you should you ever decide to visit Toronto!

        • oops [me blushing!]
          Aww, Shaheen, of all the wonderful things you’ve said to me, having your house open to me, touched me the most. Thank you so much my dear!!! Overwhelmed!!!! 🙂

          • My home shall always be open to you – it’s globally declared here on your lovely blog ! Just come! And, I should so interview you for my blog – about your music / art, et al…What says Marina? After the holidays I can prepare a bunch of questions and it would be a great honour to post your answers in relation to your creative world.
            Keep shining, my friend! Chashme ba-durr (we Persians say this – it means: may you be protected by any evil and envious eyes, always). Normally after a praise, we say this! Yup, the superstitious civilisation we happen to live in ! Lol.
            Lots of love & hugs.

            • Oh, I know, we have that over here too… in some places in Greece people say the opposite so that they don’t provoke spirits, for example they may say “you look so ugly”, meaning the opposite, or wear eye beads or blue beads for the “evil eye”!!!
              I am honored by your proposition my dear. How could I ever refuse a talented person like you?!!! We will be in touch.
              Thank you very very much!!!!!!!!
              Love and hugs from me too.

Happy to hear your thoughts
