back with a new moon!

January New Moon©Marina Kanavaki

After a very long and exhausting move, we are finally settled into our new home.
I did ‘fall prey to a carton avalanche’ as my friend ‘August Meditations’ feared 🙄
but made it in one piece and gradually trying to get back to a ‘normal’ routine.

Happy New Moon of January

to everyone!

    Amazing and unspeakable thoughts about 1950s movie posters in internet after watching this picture of yours, which have this kind of colour tones..

  2. viveka says:

    This is powerful too … the black moon .. with the blue. Beautiful, Marina – we all love the moon … for some reason. I think we should let it be … don’t disturb it with more visits.

  3. So happy you are back, and a lovely moon.

  4. Francina says:

    Welcome back. dear Marina! May your new home be a happy home! Lovely painting!
    groetjes, :_) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    • Thank you, my dear Francina! Deze verhuizing naar een nieuw huis heeft al mijn energie uitgelekt! [I’m very curious as to how it translated – I feel it must sound funny!]
      Heeft u een mooie vrijdag en weekend!! Groetjes
      🙂 xxxx

  5. The New Moon represents perfect symbolism!! Why?? Because it reminds us all of the gaping hole in our lives when dear, dear Marina Kanavaki’s not around!! So glad you’re back, order has been restored to the universe… : )

    A carton avalanche?? Oh, dear– hope it didn’t, um, box your ears!! : )

    • 😆 Ah -ha… the ears survived – alas many other parts [brain for example] have suffered severe injuries! All in for a major restoration at the moment! Will be good as new soon!
      Happy Wednesday evening, Mark! 🙂

    VERY Cool! Wishing you a great creative day, Marina!

  7. Dear Marina, glad you arrived in one piece.. I know how traumatic a house move can be.. So good to see you back.. And can I just say a BIG thank you too for your wonderful heartfelt comment upon my own post.. Love and Gratitude sent your way.. And I hope your unpacking will soon be over and you will find yourself more settled.. Hugs again.. Sue xox

    • It’s good to see you too, my dear Sue and no need for ‘thank you’… as I said, I know exactly how precious these silent breaks are and I am truly happy for you [loved your paintings by the way!]
      Love and hugs back and lots of xxxxxx!! 🙂

    Stark and stunning Marina! Love the barely discernible fingernail crescent. Here’s to new beginnings 🙂

  11. Jean-Jacques says:

    Marvellous interpretation, and jarringly intriguing, while dusting out the old traditions of seeing the old planet… Love your creativity!

  12. Bongo says:

    I love all the blue shades in your painting. It looks like I could jump in and go swimming.

  13. Lori Lipsky says:

    Lovely artwork. Congratulations on completing your move. I hope you’ll be happy in your new home. All the best to you!

  15. jeb610 says:

    Hello. Just a quick thank you for reading my blog…..I am spending time reading yours and thoroughly enjoying your posts….Keep up the good work!


  16. Steven says:

    I’m a little late to the party but it’s great to see you back, Marina! 🙂 I hope you are settling into your new place.

  17. marina! te kanis? kala? been a long, long time since we chatted…i think i last talkd to u round about 2 weeks bfore xmas…u were moving at that time…glad ur all settled down now…till the next move..LOL!
    chatting aside, i just luv that first painting of urs here..the one with the moon etc….such simplicity, such depth of feeling..u are a truly remarkable lady…very lucky man is ur partner.!

    • 2 weeks before xmas… that sounds like a long long time – yet it feels like yesterday. Back then we were on a packing frenzy. After the January 19th [day we moved in] we’ve been on an unpacking frenzy! During this time I have learned this one lesson -the very hard way unfortunately: things that you can’t see or have access to easily and forget, THROW THEM AWAY! Also, never keep things you think that one day you may use!!! I don’t think I’ve ever hated ‘things’ in my life so much!
      Sorry about this little outburst but it’s been such an exhausting [nearly] 3 months…
      Thank you, my friend. I’m so glad you like it. It was my first attempt to get back! On that last note: Blushing! I’m also very lucky! 😉
      How are you? Back from the UK?

  33. Jess says:

    Good to have you back! The black moon is very misterious.

  34. viveka says:

    Wow, I love the colors and shade – so delicate … and this gives me a chill of a crispy winter late afternoon, when the moon comes out. This went to top of your art.

  35. I missed you my sister…the new painting is gorgeous!

  36. Hey Marina
    Congratulations….Hope you settle in quickly and happily.

  40. Hooray! You are. Back. Love the image

  41. Bumba says:

    Best of luck in your new home. Wonderful moon. Except it’s backwards. The new moon faces the other way!

    Un bacio e serena giornata :-)claudine

    New moon’s always inspiring. It slowly conquers the darker side day by day. We moved couple of years back & still have few boxes unopened!! One way it helps assort your junk out

  64. happy new moon, new home, new year to you! may 2014 be a great one for you!

    This is great!
    Dark Side Of The Moon.

  68. aFrankAngle says:

    Hooray … you are back! Congrats on accomplishing the move. The moon is a peaceful transition back into this world.

    To catch you up on me … We’ve been getting blasted with abnormally bitter cold … but it looks like we’ve turned the corner. We accepted an offer for our house after being on the market for about 5 days! Closing and the move is still 6 weeks away, so packing has begun.

    • So happy to see you, Frank!
      That’s great news on the house! I am trying to think of advice to give you for the move…organization is the main thing and grouping similar things [either by type or room where they will be placed] accompanied [always] with multivitamins or energy boosters and …a good wine!
      I agree about the moon.
      Happy February, my dear friend!

  69. Cynthia says:

    A beautiful moon. Look forward to future posts. 😉

  70. So glad you are getting settled and back with your beautiful artwork Marina! I’ve missed you. 🙂 Your artwork always lifts my soul.

  71. fgassette says:

    WELCOME BACK! I love the first one! Glad you are all settled in.


  72. Mary says:

    Lovely to see you again Marina and congratulations on your new home. It does take some time getting settled, doesn’t it? So happy you greet us with a beautiful moon painting –

  73. Welcome back, Marina!
