Happy seventh month, everyone!
June’s heavy schedule continues in July too, so this post is half there! Sending everyone my best wishes for this month as I kindly ask for your patience with my sporadic visits! 🙂
About months & numbers: Back in September 2015, inspired by Bumba’s “The Numbers Game Is Here: Mathematics for Dummies” The Whole Nine Yards, I started working on images for each month. First month was September, so this series will be completed in August 2016!

Nice colorful composition. I had this Genesis lp as a kid, taped on a very cheap tape, and never really got into it… Probably too off the beaten track. I recall listening with headphones and thinking ‘this is what the really serious listeners get into…’
I liked it this morning!
Oh, I’m so glad you like it today! [I think you’ll like it from now on too! 😉 ]
Je découvre ce blog et l’art qui y règne, je vais continuer à m’y ballader juste après m’y être abonné et avoir reblogué. L’art est si précieux qu’il doit être exposé à tous.
Ah, merci beaucoup pour vos mots très gentils et pour reblogué mon art. Ca signifie beaucoup pour moi. 🙂
Reblogged this on Shift2Drive.
I looked at this beautiful creation, and I orbited the moon 7 times. Then I ate 7 dishes of ambrosia to celebrate the sweet perfection of Marina Kanavaki, Painting Goddess of Olympus!! 🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖 🌗🌘🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨😊
7x7x7 and then 7 more were the times I orbited the moon after reading this! Thank you for those, my friend! 🙂 🙂 🙂
What gorgeous colours! A lovely design. Hope all is good with you!
Thanks, my friend! Considering the times we’re living, doing well [also our 4legged companion is doing a great job eradicating any unpleasantness that may appear! 😉 ] Hope you’re well too! Good to see you back! 🙂
That’s good to hear, my friend. Many thanks 🙂
Ruby 7 is delightful!
Ah, thank you, Elena! 🙂
🍷Cheers !!!! You’ve created another masterful piece of art for the wonderful month of July.
The moon stands out with all the beautiful colors you’ve added to showcase it, Marina.
Stunning painting for us to enjoy. Thank you for your creative artistry. They are a feast
for the eyes.
Ever ever ever so late…. but it’s been a very busy couple of months! Thank you, my dearest Isadora, for your kindness. I wish you a wonderful August! 🙂 xx
Ahhh …. no worries, dear Marina. We all fall far, far behind. I’m there with you. I’ve been lagging behind too. I enjoy seeing you anytime here or at your blog. I hope your work slows a bit so you can enjoy a little play time. Keep on smiling and all will be well. Hugs, Isadora 😍❤️😀
🙂 xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 😘😘😘🤗🤗🤗🤗
Truth and true desire
are sweet blessings
which shall never fade
They will make amazing
smiles come to life
with the coming each new day
They will lift up hearts to
taste of new joys which
will daily make hearts sing
and they will provide many
memories with the blossoming
beauties which they bring
And one will always have a
treasure which they will
embrace their entire life
Finding each day as they
open their eyes they will
always be filled daily…
with Gods Light.
So very beautiful are the treasures you share Marina! God Bless!
My dearest Wendell,
the beauty of your words
“make amazing smiles come to life”! Thank you, my kindest friend!
Your presence here is always a blessing! 🙂
I liked your blog, good painting, I invite you to my blog:

Wonderful my friend…. seven is always a lucky number, right on… sending stove and be wishes. Aquileana 🙂
Ah, thank you, my dear Aquileana! Happy and fortunate seven then to you [even if it’s late July!] and although I’m not sure what the ‘stove and be’ wishes are, they do sound surealistic good – thank you, my friend! 🙂 Love and hugs to you! xxxx
Thank you so much, my dear Melody! 🙂
Marina, every time I see your latest work I feel like I’ve come home. You have a simplicity and vibrancy that brings such a wonderful quiet appreciation for simple is more. I love it. Hope you have a beautiful weekend my friend.
Another instant classic, Marina.
Well done as always!
Aw, thank you, my dear friend!!! 🙂
A happy seventh month to you too Marina. Warm wishes as always 🙂

Sorry for the delay – I’m on a short break from my heavy schedule to clear my head off and my connection is slow.
I just saw! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!! I’ll be getting it as soon as I get back! 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish you success and lots & lots of sales – you deserve it! 🙂 🙂 🙂
my 7 yr old daughter

Wishing you a very Happy July dear Marina, Love the combination of colours.. And you most certainly have my patience,,, Happy creating dear friend xxx Love Sue xxx ❤
Thank you, my dearest Sue! I’m on a short break now to clear my head and be able to continue afterwards! Happy creating to you – with love always 🙂 xxxxxx
Enjoy your short break Marina and may it refresh your spirit my friend ❤ x
Thank you, my dear Sue! 🙂 sending love & xxxxxxxxx 🙂
And hugs back ❤
Great colours, Marina, great potential T-shirt slogan (“Truth, Trust, True Desire”) – and an honourable and unexpected mention for Genesis and one of their lesser known but most appealing early albums… RH
Hm, great idea! 😉 Thank you, my friend. Most appealing and brilliant as all their early albums! Glad you enjoyed. Have a beautiful July, RH! 🙂
another fantastic abstract. Love the balance in this image between shape/form. Great composition. Wonderful color. Really well done.
Ah, Terry, this means so much coming from you. Thank you, my friend. Hope July’s treating you well. 🙂
Gorgeous, Marina! Hope you’re having a great weekend.
A belated thank you, my friend… I’ve been so busy I had to take a short break to clear my mind. Back next week to continue. Hope you’re having a great break! 🙂
A perfect piece for July my dear Marina!
Full of energy. Love it!❤️
Thank you, my dear Violet. So happy you enjoyed it! hugs to you and Malus too! xxxx
Definitely a toast to the prime of summer. Love the way the 7 serves as a border/divider to segments within. As usual, excellent color combinations! Hope all is well! 🙂
Ah, thank you, my dear Frank for that lovely interpretation. Still on a heavy schedule but I am now taking a short break to clear my mind in order to continue next week. Hope all’s well with you too! 🙂
Clearing the head is a grand idea …. so do what you have to do!
Make sure to have wine!
🙂 🙂 🙂 🍷 🍷 yamas!
A perfect piece for July…. hot fun in the summer sun! I suppose in the southern hemisphere it would be hot fun in the winter sun. (I’ll take the rubies!) Wonderful,Marina! xoxoxo
Yep, I’ll take the rubies too!!!!! 😉 Thank you, my sweet friend. Still more work to do but I’m taking a short break away [slow connection] in order to get my mind cleared and rest.
ps still no free shipping but I’ll let you know! 😉
July is my Birthday month., and I love rubies. Your Ruby 7 design is so vibrant, Marina. Happy July. 🙂 xx
Lucky girl!!!!! Ruby’s my favorite gem! Happy Birth month, my dear Sylvia and maybe hubby gets you a ruby for your birthday!!! 😉 xxxxxx
Thanks, Marina. Maybe he will. 🙂
Thank you, Marina, for the numerology inspiration and your creative talent! Wishing you a very happy July! -xx
A belated thank you, my dearest friend! A most wonderful July to you too! [I’m taking a breather from my heavy schedule and the internet connection is very slow here]. Hugs and love xxxxxx
Dearest, I missed some post and was very busy first, then got a virus flu (yes, rarely happens even in Summer) with high fever… I am almost recovered and start making some order of my things. I enjoyed the song thinking back in the past years of my youth.
Hugs and kisses 🙂 Claudine
Oh, no… I’m also late responding [too much work and I’m currently taking a short break so that I can continue afterwards]. I’m sure you are much much better now and totally healed! Yes… [re: Genesis] they don’t make them like that any more, do they?! Many many hugs and love xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
July, my birth month, and you portray it so beautifully Marina. Love your design and the Genesis song. It’s been a very wet and warm summer so far here on the Pacific coast of Canada. Unlike your Mediterranean colours it’s been mostly grays and greens, interspersed with a multitude of blossoms. Wet green is easier to live with than dry brown…
Happy Birthmonth, my friend!!!!! So glad you enjoyed it and the Genesis song. I agree, wet green is better but how ‘bout dry green with dashes of color and a turquoise sea near by?!!!! 😉
Vibrant and hot! Hope you get everything done you need to Marina, and enjoy the 7th month of the year x
Thank you, my dear Pam. Still more work ahead but I’m taking a short break to clear my mind and continue afterwards [hence my late answer]. Back soon and hope to do my July follow up before the month ends! 😉 Happy 7th month to you too.
The seven works perfectly in the design. Thanks for the mention. Wow, you’re completing a year of number madness.
Number madness indeed!!!!! And who do I have to blame for, huh?!!!!!
Thank you, my dear friend. It’s been [well still one more to go] a great project to work on. Quite significant to me too as it began with the departing of my very dear 4legged companion. As you mentioned some time ago, it kept me on my feet! Double ‘thank you’! 😉
Quadruple thanks to you. Octuple thanks next month. I was in London yesterday at the Tate. I thought of you when I admired the Henry Moore sculptures. 🙂
🙂 🙂 Coincidentally one of my first college projects was on Henry Moore! 😉 Those curves!!!!!!
A beautiful work, Marina!
Thank you very much! 🙂
🙂 Thanks, my friend! 🙂
Marina this is very striking as always your work is joyful. I shared at 7am, that just has to be lucky!
Oh, it most definitely will be!!!!! A belated thank you, my dear friend. I’ve been on a heavy schedule at work and I am now taking a very short break to clear my mind and continue afterwards.
Ruby Seven is beautifully crafted.
Thank you, my dear YS! 🙂
Tasteful combination of colours to denote ruby seven, ushering in the second half of the year. The superstructure of happiness and contentment is being erected on a foundation of hope, goodwill and togetherness. Continue dipping your brushes in shades of love and optimism, marina, and sing more joyful songs….
My dear Raj, your beautiful words are a fountain of joy. Thank you so much. I’ll continue dipping my brushes and may they paint joyful songs for kind spirits like you! 🙂
Splendid design.Wishing you all the best.
Thank you, my dear Jalal! All the very best to you too! 🙂
