  1. Fantastic, this leaves me speechless. Loved it!

    Liebe Marina einen schönen Sonntag Morgen wünsche ich dir mit vielen lieben Grüßen in Freundschaft Klaus

  3. Whew!! (mops brow) I’m sorry it took me so long to get here, my dear Marina. I’m drenched to the bone! I’m shivering with delight! I have a fish in every pocket, and seaweed in my socks!!

    After much rumination, what happened seems clear: your amazing work is so powerful, it stirred up the forces of nature far beyond the originating canvas. The emotional content of your work is so strong, it disrupts both three-dimensional space, and cyberspace!!

    Just getting to your blog was a monumental task. Being your #1 fan, of course, I was highly motivated and bravely risked all!! No, no, don’t thank me, it’s nothing really, all in a day’s work, you know… : )

    Another wonderful composition, and I plan to contemplate it as I eat my supper tonight. I think I’ll be having seafood… : )

    • I thought i saw you with an octopus on the head, but I never would have imagined it would be a painting’s side effect! In the future I shall try to control my paintbrushes [you know how mischievous they can get!]! 🙂
      For you, I have created a special pedestal with protective glass, so you can be preserved as a rare [extinct] specimen of nobility, integrity, generosity and kindness [all inclusive] character.
      from YOUR #1 fan, moi that is! 😉

    Hauntingly beautiful. As always.

  5. So much emotion compressed within this piece!

  6. violetski says:

    Very beautiful and dramatic dear Marina! ❤️

  7. Good colours and good expressions Marina.

  8. Bumba says:

    Always like your colors🐸

  9. Well done, nice paintings Marina. You know, you could have alot of inspiration here in Britain..we see more grey skies and heavy rain than actual sunshine. We do have some beautiful sunsets though 🙂


  10. mihrank says:

    such powerful and amazing presentation – this is a elite Art!

  11. Aquileana says:

    I love this set of paintings, dear Marina. Toast to you.
    Best wishes!, Aquileana 😀

    hi Marina, maybe you could introduce your watercolor paintings also successfully on – they do not only present photos – compare my watercolors project there:

    • frizztext says:

      Γεια σου Μαρίνα, ίσως θα μπορούσε να εισαγάγει υδατογραφίες σας, επίσης, με επιτυχία στο – κάνουν παρόντες όχι μόνο φωτογραφίες – συγκρίνετε υδατογραφίες του έργου μου εκεί:

    • As you already know, I love your watercolor project! It would be nice, hopefully one day when I find some time to do it… Thank you, Frizz!!!! 🙂

  13. Moody, gnarly and beautiful! Have a great week, Marina!

  14. Jean-Jacques says:

    A marvelous work of art Mariana, one that stirs the grey emotions of winter, now upon us. The beauty of this tormenting imagery is most assuredly in keeping with your consistent exceptional creations.

    Coincidentally, I have just today completed a new piece on the subject of limbo, which I am about to post on my Poetry on a Canapé site. It will also appear in my new, and eleventh book of poems, soon to be published.

    I found this new and beautiful painting of yours, made me feel the cold of winter in my bones, and expressed for me at least, so well the emotions that prompted the like cold winter phycological feelings experienced by the person that inspired my poem. Consequently I would like to first to share it with you first…

    “ The Dark of Limbo ”

    ~ begs a morrow ~

    I reach for her

    Tho well I know

    ‘Tis but a shadow

    I shall find,

    I call her name

    And hear awash

    Its echoed sound

    Implying limbo’s tide

    Has carried it beyond…

    In shades abutting dark

    I barely see her face,

    As I endure await

    An end to limbo’s fate,

    Thus beg that morrow

    Finds her an escape,

    Where she may reach

    The end of sorrow,

    Beyond the dark of limbo!

    Hi Marina ,unique painting ,the concept of colors and trees.,even the darkness smiles for the blues.Have a happy thanksgiving.Jalal

  16. Madhu says:

    Love the beautiful moody hues Marina! Another brilliant effort 🙂

  17. Mary says:

    Oh this is fantastic Marina – I miss your creative paintings. These close-ups are like little treasures, being able to see the textures and layers, and the best blends of color. This is wonderful ~ have a great evening.

  18. This is the color of winter… when the sap returns into the heart of the trees… and the earth is hard…
    A metamorphosis for the man who withdraws in himself, meditating, looking for a reason to everything… taking a pause from the habit of time passing!
    Hugs and kisses :-)c

  19. Susan Feniak says:

    Heavy weather indeed. But there is hope that it will brighten soon. Optimism 🙂

  20. Doris says:

    I love the texture of this painting
    love how you can see the acrylics, ink and watercolor
    very good Marina!

  21. Lucid Gypsy says:

    I like this dark moody work very much but I wish you sunshine as well dear Marina.

  22. makagutu says:

    I hope the title doesn’t describe how you are feeling but is just about the weather

  23. Resa says:

    I love this piece, Marina!

  24. I really enjoy your artwork, Marina. This one is so striking and unusual. Have a good week. xx

  25. Russ L says:

    Oh I like this one. Blurs the boundaries between land and sea. Especially that last large close-up; smoke? plants? froth? Is that the Whomping Willow?! 🙂

    • 😀 ! Ah ha ha, it does look a tad ominous, doesn’t it?! Well, it’s growing in the middle of nowhere, its roots trying to cling to the water and all this with heavy weather advancing… can you blame it?!!! Thank you, my dear Russ! 🙂

  26. you so beautifully capture the seasons of the soul as expressed in the natural world.. praying you glimpse some blue skies..

  27. positively gorgeous muddy colours and atmospheric too

  28. There has indeed been some heavy weather about Marina.. I do hope you are emerging from your own grey clouds as you readjust dear Marina.. Lovely Artwork.. I particularly like the mosaic effect. on your art sale page..

    Wishing you and enjoyable and productive week.. May your storm clouds life dear Marina and May the Sun shine only Rainbows..

    Love and Blessings
    Sue xxx

    • Ah, Sue, my dear, the clouds are clearing and I feel blessed for having friends like you.
      ‘May the Sun shine only Rainbows’ for you too, my kind friend. A big big hug and xxxxxx 🙂

  29. Dilip says:

    Another beautiful creation from you dear Marina. The combination of colours and their shades bring out the effects of a very cold winter so well.

    The Indian winter has still not set in.

    With kind regards and plenty of cheer 🙂

  30. Designer says:

    Wow, Marina! I can feel the chill in the air! Offering much warmth to you! ~xo

  31. donna213 says:

    I think you captured it perfectly, Marina. Living with heavy weather here in Niagara Falls, I see this weather mood often. Lovely.

  32. aFrankAngle says:

    Unquestionably delivers the gloom of heavy weather … which also means Well Done!

  33. Jess says:

    Wow! I agree- the painting is very dramatic.
    Great work Marina!

  34. Can feel it, Marina! xxx
