    Love it! Beautiful as always my dear Marina!
    Also love the carves of that golden strip❤️

  2. Love this. Looks 3 dimensional.

    Marina, this so classy and bold on the same time – stunning colors as always. I got my sleeve today and it’s so beautiful. I could see that it was mailed from Germany – they have the post mail system in the world, take ages to get anything from Germany. Love it, slightly too big for my netbook, but I know it will feel very good in the sleeve.

    • Oh, that’s brilliant! I’m so happy you like it. I’m sure it will do its best to keep your notebook happy and safe! 😉 As for Germany – I thought we were the only ones but apparently you are right – they do own the post system worldwide! Thank you for your kind words on my painting. Have a lovely weekend! 🙂

    Crisp and lovely Marina, very Zen-like somehow! Love the paring of yellow with the dark blues.

  5. aFrankAngle says:

    First of all, I wonder how I missed this one … and now I’m wondering about what else I’ve missed! Love it … there’s something that captures me in this one, but I can’t pinpoint it.

  6. Elegantly done, great art work, Marina. I like the compositions and the colours too. Strong work.

  7. Love the blue .. and the yellow, well now, I am using my imagination here…As the yellow reminds me of some yellow yarn I have used recently in knitting.. it also sent my mind to what I have been painting today.. a mouse’s tail.. 😉 I love the detail on the close ups.. 🙂
    Have a Wonderful rest of the week Marina.. I always seem to be late in catching your posts… But I do get here eventually.. 🙂 Much love dear friend
    Love Sue xoxox

    • I saw your lovely mouse [both of them actually!] and loved it!!! I see what you mean about the tail! 😆 You are never late, my dear and thank you! Wishing you also a beautiful and very creative rest of the week, Sue! 🙂 Hugs xxxx

  9. Designer says:

    Marina, I love this – it looks like gold. (I don’t know how I missed this post!) ~xoxo

  10. Marko says:

    Hello Marina! I warmly greet you and invite you to see my new photos.
    I wish you a successful week.

  11. Nawfal says:

    Very Beautiful Abstract – Love it! Great work Marina! All the Best to You, from your friend, Nawfal – I PINTERESTED this one! 🙂

  12. Tish Farrell says:

    This is quite a mysterious creation, Marina. It makes me think of a dark sea. But is the sinuous strand a source of light; or is it a serpent? V. intriguing.

    • Tish, what a lovely thought! It could be a portrait / face [the ‘sinuous strand’] swimming in a dark sea of thoughts… Thank you for your beautiful comment! 🙂

  13. doronart says:

    Marina that is great sorry I am not around much now a day… love the composition and colours 🙂 xx

  14. Nandini says:

    Wow gorgeous work! And the details are just beautiful! I also loved the color combination of yellow and blue!

  15. Elegance with a twist of golden opulence. Beautiful, Marina!

  16. The Hook says:

    I haven’t been around much, but it’s nice to see that your skills haven’t diminished, Marina.

  17. Aquileana says:

    A line is not just a straight line… It might be also a curve..
    Good one, Marina.
    Best wishes, Aquileana 🙂

  18. I love the brush strokes and the lighting that comes through in the use of color, Marina. I scrolled up and down multiple times in the reader enjoying the different perspectives. This is really beautiful!

  19. That really caught my eye. I love the closeup, the 3-D depth of the yellow form is wonderful.

  20. AinaBalagtas says:

    As sophisticated and elegant as the artist herself, kudos M! Your creation is really stunning as always!

  21. ĽAdelaide says:

    A lovely composition. I wish I could type more but cannot tonight. Blessings~

  22. nonoymanga says:

    minimalist with a lot of depth!!! superb as always!!!

  23. Resa says:

    Amazing! This face is for the wonderful animals, I think.
    I have been a Veggie since I was 17 and love animals, as you do.
    Beautiful art, beautiful blog!

  24. Lucid Gypsy says:

    I suspect that this kind of stark, elegant apparent simplicity is incredible difficult to execute. It’s wonderful Marina!

    • What a lovely thing to say, Gilly! It does take practice and a rather full garbage bin but the ‘final’ one usually comes effortlessly, so much so that even I am surprised! 🙂 Thank you, my dear! xx

  25. Something rather different my dear Marina! Love those blues. xxx

  26. Just wonderful, Marina! 🙂

  27. kerlund74 says:

    Great colors, structure and composition, love it:)

  28. Looks like a face! And like a snake also.
    Anyway, I love it!

  29. I just loove this! So beautiful!

  30. equinoxio21 says:

    Nice. Reminds me (though your style is totally different) of the snake jewels in many of Labisse’s paintings! Thank you.

    • Thank you, Brian! That’s very interesting! This is my ‘take’ of a portrait which after years of abstraction it has come down to a line: profile and front of a face, simultaneously. Glad you like it! 🙂

  31. What if…depiction of the “silver cord” that binds body to soul in this life.

  32. An Idea + imagination = beautiful art ,the colors and the shape are unique.Jalal

  33. Mary says:

    Wonderful Marina, it’s the use of color that draws the eye, with the texture and form shapes that draw the viewer in. Love the composition.

    • This was such a thick layer of oil to get the texture I wanted, but it’s hard to capture it on a photograph [eventhough it was done by a pro photographer]. I am very glad you like it, Mary! 🙂

  34. I liked this very much. I have completed several pieces similarly. Where one large piece was divided into smaller pieces, which, curiously had an entirely different feel than the first piece. My post today is such a piece. I liked that you let us see the whole process.

    • Thank you, Noelle. I did see your work and it is beautiful. This is from my exhibition in 1999 titled: Characters as the paintings are ‘portraits’ of different characters – or at least, my version of a portrait. Glad you liked it! 🙂

  35. Interesting pattern, although the gold shape is too snake-like for comfort.

  36. Eli Pacheco says:

    Love the color, and the depth and texture within the square.

  37. Came back to look again. 🙂 This is just a painting that I could stare at for a long time. Now the yellow looks like a river to me, and it is just so wonderful, Marina. Great work. 🙂

  38. I really like this. The square, the vertical lines and than that wonderful yellow squiggle line. Love the different blues too.
