  1. I am moved and inspired each time you share your pictures! I am lifted within by the colors that you choose. And yet I should always expect that, as they reflect the gentle beauty within your heart and soul! May is my favorite month, as it is my birth month…and I love the color purple! You always provide the perfect gems to embrace dear sister! Hugs and blessings to you always Marina!

    • Ah, thank you so much, my dear friend. Yes, I remember this is your month [what a beautiful month to be brought to this world it is too!].
      Hugs and blessings to you too, Wendell!
      Wishing you a joyful May! 🙂

  2. Marina, you art is just beautiful. The space with the color? Well it just communicates hopefulness to me. 🙂 thank you for following me the other day, sorry I didn’t thank you sooner.

  3. The only sweetness for a great month of May, my friend, is the beauty of your smile.
    I leave, on these pages, even a hug for those who suffer.


  4. Happy days to you, too, Marina! What a glorious painting. I love your work so very much!
    I also love how you love animals.
    I have this idea for some posts on my GLaM blog. I was challenged by Le Drake, 5 photos, 5 poems or stories told in a few sentences, no rules.
    I will collect 5 animal graffiti or murals. All by-lines/stories/poems will be about the animals to further awareness in regards to the ill treatment they have suffered under man & what to do about it.
    First I need to gather some shots, and as I am on a job right now, it will be sometime this summer.
    I hope you will allow me to dedicate the posts to you when I do them.
    Love & hugs _Resa

    • Awwwww…you are so sweet!!! Thank you, my dear Resa!
      Brilliant theme and I know you are going to do an amazing job! Can’t wait to see it!
      I am honored [to say the least] but …do you really have to ask? 🙂
      love and many hugs back to you! 🙂 xxxx

    • A beautiful, happy, colorful PINK [https://pwilsondesign.wordpress.com/2015/05/01/the-divine-seashell/] May to you too, my dear Patricia!!! 🙂 xxxx

  5. Happy May Day Marina – what a beautiful and engaging painting (I’ve waited for this). A perfect way to show respect and a caring gesture for those who are in pain. I hope this brings comfort and strength. Hope you have a beautiful weekend ~ thinking about you and wishing you well.

    • Thank you so much, Mary and thank you for your patience and support! I hope so too, my kind friend, from my heart.
      Enjoy a wonderful month.
      Can’t wait for more art from ‘Mary’s garden’!!! 😉

      • I worry for you and others in Greece, and hope that the situation doesn’t worsen from the most impossible circumstances that you all are in. My thoughts and prayers are with you – may this month bring a fresh breath of Spring air and brilliant sunshine ~

        • Thank you so much for your thoughts, my dear Mary. It is true we are in a tough spot to cope but even so, our problems are ‘man made’. There are people dealing with mother nature’s wrath and nothing can compare to that.
          May we all be blessed with better days ahead…
          Have a beautiful Monday and new week, my dear friend. 🙂 xx

  6. This is most wonderful! May is my month, my all time favorite, not because I got born in May 😉 but is the month of the most beautiful blooming flowers and this one is a stunner! Love it, love it! Your message of best wishes for all those who suffer is more then welcome and holds a very personal feeling for me and I thank you for that from all my heart!
    May you have a very blessed and happiest May my dear friend! xoxo~Eva

    • My dear Eva, there is too much suffering in our world and I am sorry to hear that this touches you too. In my ‘Joy Overflowing’ post, I shared a video ‘The End of Suffering’ [https://vimeo.com/111763408] …so much better than me saying anything about it!
      Thank you so much for your sweet words and hey, did I read well… you are a May girl?!
      A blessed and wonderful May to you!!! 🙂 xxxxxx

  7. Marina, you know … me I love purple. I think it’s a fantastic color for May … because May is very pink and yellow in itself. Very beautiful … a little intense too. Happy May to you too.

    • Yes, I remember! I’m fond of it too. Coincidentally, I just planted some purple Calla Lilies which actually reminded me of that watercolor! They are just amazing! Have a beautiful May, my dear Viveka! 🙂

  8. Happy May Day, Marina … and my toast to May is tomorrow. Seeing the Marina Swoosh once again made me smile. Strength to the suffering and to those close to them.

Happy to hear your thoughts
