  1. Love your style and manner of expressing your subject. So recognizable as Marina Kanavaki’s beautiful, somewhat abstract creations, no matter what colours with which you happen to be working.

  2. The combination of magenta and green is gorgeous Marina. And I love the cursive script! I thik not knowing what language it is,actually adds an element of mystery 🙂

  3. “To know the whole world is nothing when it is compared to knowing your own inner mystery of life.”
    (From the water color by Marina Kanavaki, “Take notes”)

    Cordialità, my sweet friend


  4. Hi Marina! 🙂 WOW! I love this – very cool and very excellent work! 🙂
    On a different note: I was doing some reading on modern day Sparta. From the pictures I’ve seen, it is quite the beautiful little city. I’m surprised that the population figures I read about, are really very small compared to a lot of ancient cities. Have you been to Sparta, I think I saw that it is also refered to as “Sparti”? It is added to my bucket-list, which I hope can be fulfilled some day. I was a History major in under-grad school, so I kind of like all that “History Stuff” – 🙂 Wishing you a great creative day!

    • Hi, Nawfal and thank you!! 🙂
      Sparti is part of a larger area in the Peloponese, called Laconia and there are really beautiful places to visit, like Mystras for example. Yes, I have been there. Greece has an amazing variety of landscapes with great contrasts. From the mount Olympus (for very experienced climbers), to secluded tropical beaches… I know you’d have a great time artistically here! 🙂

  5. The writing is so expressive…I could never write like that (that’s why I love the word processing of a computer)! Beautifully colored, too. Are you sure I can’t reblog this, giving you credit all the way? 🙂

  6. beautiful Marina! I love the manuscript on the painting. makes it very attractive and mysterious!!
    groetjes, 🙂 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    • All I found out is that it was from an ancient manuscript. Not very informative really … (was a copyright free and free download image) but I can recognize greek characters and maybe words. It is probably an imitation of an ancient text. Thank you, Donna. Take care out in the snow and happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

      • Thank you Marina. I hope you have a wonderful weekend coming up. I am posting my Thanksgiving menu this weekend for those of you that don’t have our holiday. I think you did a brilliant job with your art and the text. It is pretty amazing that is ancient text and looks so at home on your work. It makes such a pleasing composition. I bet others think as I do and you should do a series like this.

  7. Look great, but a bit to femine for me. 😉 … PS … I received the download … thanks .. haven’t listened yet as time is quite demanding these days. Yiamas!

  8. Wow, beautiful! I love the handwriting, the colors and how it all blends nicely together. I also like how the first image gives me an impression of an ancient look and feel, as if the writing was done on parchment!
    Fabulous, dear Marina! 🙂

  9. Ooooh, magenta, magic magenta and mysterious notes…. Love it, Marina, well done!! Which language is it? Un abrazo!!
