  1. I’ve spent the last 2 weeks camping in my backyard. I stay up all night gazing at the moon. I used my Junior Astronomer kit and a telescope I bought at the dollar store to study the moon.

    Conclusions: your painting is more compelling than the real moon, the colors are more vibrant, your moon hints at unknown worlds and possibilities, whereas the real moon only hints of green cheese.

    Oh yes, one other conclusion: I have to bring more hot water bottles with me the next time I do meteorological research… : )

  2. Marina superb colour mix for a new moon…. It must have been some time ago just managed to see our friend it looked little pregnant… since you gave him the selfie treatment. Great combination 🙂

    • My dear Frizz, thank you so much for the introduction! We have already visited his page [and follow already] and we would be very happy to ‘meet’ musically. We are currently recording our 4th album and are on a very tight schedule but we hope we can do something in the future.. We appreciate the interest and support very much!
      Please give our ‘thank you’ and kind regards to Oorlab. We”l be in touch. 🙂

  3. A very good morning to you my sweet friend Marina,
    and what a beautiful painting you have offered us here 🙂

    days but I always think of you on my return, and hey
    have a very happy Monday my lovely friend 🙂

  4. I love the simplicity of the design, yet complexity and vibrancy of colors and shading. It speaks to me of the hope I have to hold the simple joys through whatever complexities the year may throw at me. Gorgeous, Marina, as always.

    • My dear Colleen, I wish the year only throws you simple joys and fulfillment and many beautiful paintings for us to enjoy! Thank you so much for those kind words. I can’t tell you how much they mean to me. Have a beautiful week! 🙂

    • What a beautiful thing to say, my dear Wendell. Thank you so very much, my friend. As is your gift, which I have the pleasure of enjoying every day through your wonderful poems! Alas, weekend is gone so I wish you a beautiful week!! 🙂

    • Thank you so much, my dear Donna!! I just wanted a simple image for this new moon and these were the first colors which came out instinctively. So happy you liked it. 🙂

  5. Fabulous work of art Marina – the subtle shift of colors and values are exceptional. Love the new moon – a time to celebrate. Have a wonderful evening!
