Ah… thank you! 🙏🙏🙏😊
Wow!! This reminds me of a Dracula movie I saw once. Drac stopped into this soda shop and ordered something called a Blood Frappé. And he slurped it thru a bright red straw just like that– which was strange because the film was in black-and-white… : )
OK, I made some of that up. OK, the whole thing… : )
It’s a stunner, my dear Marina!! Kind of a surrealistic character study with psychological overtones about the desperate human striving for meaning (color) in a drab uncaring world. Well, either that or one of the gods left his Cranberry Nectar Soda lying around, and a very reckless mortal grabbed it and is finishing it off.
Well, that’s enough analysis for today. I really must go lie down… : )
“Red straw”!!!!!! How could I have missed that?! This causes for a change of name! I ought to rename it to “Character 14 and red straw” or “The red straw of Character 14” or “Character 14 sipping blood thru a straw” or “The red straw Character 14” or “The last straw of Character 14” [!] …. could go on and on!
FYI, if I recall, it was the latter: Zeus left his cranberry soda lying around and the rest -as they say- is history! 😉
A very belated thank you, my friend. 🙂
A painting with plenty of emotions!!!
Thank you very much!!! 🙂
Very striking 🙂 xx

Ah, Debi, so happy you enjoyed this. Thank you, my dear. 🙂
Wonderful images and your imagination! Wow! Hope your week is going well too.
My dear Jamie, you are very sweet, thank you. You too have a beautiful week! 🙂
Always inspiring what comes alive in your artwork. Always a blessing to embrace! Hugs Marina!
And always a blessing having you around, my dear Wendell! Thank you, my friend! 🙂
The bold red stands out making a stunning impact Thanks you dear Marina for another beautiful masterpiece. Cheers and regards. 🙂
Beautiful piece Marina! Did you set out to convey contrasting emotions in the treatment of the eyes or is it just my perception?
I did have a face with contrasting emotions in mind when doing it, so I’m glad you traced it! Thank you, my dear Madhu!
ps I hope one day you will also enjoy a nice conversation with a four-legged friend lying down on the grass! 😉
Thank you, Elena! Happy Monday! 🙂
Very unique and full of character. Lovely.
Ah, thank you, Donna! 🙂
Yes, very avante grade and very much a character. I like the striking color red popping from the rest of the image. There’s a great deal of drama that exudes while viewing. Always keeping the viewer questioning what is going on. Well done … !!!! 😎
I see the ‘auto correct’ corrected the Avant Garde! [I have to correct the auto correct every time! Seems they are not familiar with this art movement! 😉 ] Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed my …character!!! 😉 xxxx
So sorry I haven’t being on WordPress for a while – my workload has been on over drive – but this really caught me eye – `Gorgeous Work again – great texture!!!
Ah, Stephen, having a work over drive sounds great! Thank you, my friend. Good to see you! 🙂
Very Avant-garde and such remarkable and beautiful paintings. 🙂
Two-Thumbs up!!! Marina. 🙂
Two?!!!!! Awww, thank you, my friend! 🙂 Brilliant: “What Drips May Borrow of Armadillo Tanks”! 🙂
Awesome piece Marina – brilliantly executed in concept. You created such drama with those fluid lines and white background as contrast. Just love it ~ great Monday to you!
Ah, Mary, it means so much that you appreciate this. Thank you, my friend! Enjoy a beautiful Tuesday! 🙂
Just a few lines, creating visual magic…
Ah, thank you so much, dear Raj… you are too kind! 🙂
This is amazing! Your talent is very evident here! It makes me think a bit about certain style from the 1950’s
Awwww…. I love to work like this! I see what you mean about the 50’s [even a little earlier… 😉 ] hugs & love xx
Wonderful! Have a great week, Marina!
You too, my friend! Thank you, Richard! 🙂
Happy Monday Marina, it’s a bank holiday here so no work today!
Ah, that sounds good! Enjoy! 🙂 xx
Ah ha … from the pre-swoosh era. 😉 But I can see swoosh elements!

I thought you would my reference of the pre-swoosh era. 🙂
