As Above So Below #14

As Above So Below…
Some of my friends may remember this on going series.
[here is a link of the ones I’ve already posted: As Above So Below ]
While working on “In Limbo”, I found myself lead back to “As Above…”
…not that I’m obsessed with this theme or anything!!!!   😉
So here is my new work titled:

  2. Love this work of art Marina.. As above so below…. love how your colours merge and contrast… xxx.. So missed coming over.. but glad to be catching up at last.. it may well take me some time before I catch up with all my regular friends LOL.. but its so good to see what you have been up to… Is this a new back ground too? or is it just that I have been absent for so long! 😉 xxxx

    I’m still loving this artwork! More than before! 🙂

  4. Designer says:

    This is beautiful, Marina; I love the orange and purple together. ~xo

  5. Aquileana says:

    Absolutely beautiful Marina ❤
    Sending you hugs, Aquileana 😛

  6. As always I love these pieces. This is the first time I’ve noticed though that the ‘reflection’ is not a true reflection at all. This, along with the more obvious change of colours has me asking all sorts of questions in my mind about what you were signifying by this – questions for which I don’t want answers because that’s the whole point of art, is it not? To question for oneself the meaning for us and for life. I love your work because it always provokes such thoughts!

    • Ken, my friend, it makes me so happy what you’re saying and your observations… of course I wouldn’t give answers! I chose to speak in shapes and colors, not words, so why verbalize it! Thanks so much, my dear friend! Happy BRIGHT new week ahead! 🙂

  7. Incredibly beautiful, Marina. The color, the intent, the elegance. LOVE 🙂

    one maker of heaven and earth, after all. hi Marina. x tony

  9. Wow! Amazing work, color and combination are wonderfully conceptualized, Really liked it…

  10. violetski says:

    So beautiful dear Marina! ❤️
    Hope you had a great weekend dear friend😃❤️

  11. Nawfal says:

    Love this one! Beautiful, Marina!

  12. Above… a clear reference to your Cloud #9 home on Mt. Olympus.

    Below… that would be Earth, where we humble mortals dwell.

    Which leads me to conclude that your work is a “gift from the gods”– well, OK, one in particular– which enriches our lives here below.

    In fact, I feel so “enriched” when I gaze upon your work, I’m worried I may have to pay additional income tax. I must consult with my accountant… : )

    Lovely work, my dear Marina!! : )

    • Away with words like tax!!!!
      In this world here there are no such things! Just colors!
      And since …As Above So Below, that cloud is everywhere or should I say that is the cloud I am riding ever from the moment I read your comment!
      Thank you, my friend. Wishing you a beautiful Monday and new week …and New Moon! 🙂

    Hi Marina! It’s Resa commenting from my blog Art Gowns. I designed and made a bracelet. I’d love you to see it!

  24. jmsabbagh says:

    Surrealism clashes of colors to create a beautiful painting ,yellow green black and orange and the shadow in between ,great post.Jalal

  25. Resa says:

    The reflection is poignant in the way you interpreted it! Gorgeous!

  26. Ah, one of your beautiful reflections. I love the lively color, Marina. Very cheerful.

  27. Rilla Z says:

    What beautiful, bright colors!

  28. Meanderer says:

    Very pretty colour combination: light and zesty on the top, deep and soulful on the bottom 🙂

  29. Amy Reese says:

    Gorgeous colors, Marina. I love the combination of colors in this one.

  30. Love the spectrum of colors and how they balance each other out! Beautiful composition with stunning visuals!

  31. Nandini says:

    Wow, Marina! What a beautiful combination of colors. I wish I could wear these. 🙂

  32. I love your taking “nature” and carry it in your wonderful figurative art… each design is a masterpiece! I’m thinking since a couple of weeks to a project that is locked away in my soul’s drawer .. I’ll write the idea to you, and who knows… if it’s roses, they’ll bloom! Kiss :-)c

  33. Mary says:

    Beautiful design on this piece Marina! Wonderful complementary and play on colors. Happy Thursday!

  34. Jean-Jacques says:

    Magnificent interpretation, magnificent colour combination and texture… Love it!

  35. sriramjanak says:

    Splendid ..Marina..:-)

  36. andy1076 says:

    I love the reflection shining through your painting 🙂

  37. Deb says:

    Simply beautiful, Marina! I really like all the close up shots of your work too!

  38. Gorgeous, gorgeous colours!

  39. Russ L says:

    The tree makes me hungry for Dots gumdrops! Seriously love the layering though.

  40. aFrankAngle says:

    Interesting how the reflection appears as I too examined more closely. Thus, Isadora’s comment sparked a thought I hadn’t considered. Although I don’t think that was your intent, I also realize that artist’s appreciation knowing what other’s see/think rather than sharing their own thoughts about representation. Well done!

    • It’s true that I never describe or offer an interpretation of my work. Clues are given of course in the titles …usually, but this is as far as I wish [or not in this case] to ‘influence’ the viewer. There’s a multitude of emotions a painting can evoke, why guide them? Not to mention that many times a painting reveals hidden paths even from its ‘creator’! So, yes, I always enjoy reading interpretations of something I did. Thank you, my dear friend and thank you for always being so supportive! 🙂

  41. Expressive vibrant colors showcasing the high and low of the inner self.
    Powerful Marina, yet delicate. 😘

  42. interesting that after your limbo series you felt yourself to be there and now refreshed as above and below! Looks really lovely as a wall hanging
    p.s. saw an exhibition at National Gallery about ‘Making Colour’ – you many find the vid of orgins and uses of pigments as fascinating as I did
