  1. Hey!!– I recognize that painting!!– it’s Month #2 on this wonderful calendar I bought!! Which reminds me: I liked the calendar so much, I wrote a testimonial. Feel free to use it however you wish, my dear Ms. Kanavaki. Here ’tis:

    I’m the proud owner of Marina Kanavaki’s 2017 calendar: “Twelve Months: A Journey Entranced.” It’s lovely, and I’m delighted.

    I bought the Wall Calendar (the calendar is also available as a digest-sized planner). The Wall Calendar is tabloid-sized, 11” wide by 17” high, and stands out beautifully on any wall.

    Each month features a painting that takes up most of the page: approximately 11” by 15”. The effect is like having a lovely painting on your wall, with a tidy little calendar at the bottom.

    Every month you flip the page to reveal a new painting— it’s like having your own rotating art gallery.

    The paintings are dynamic, and the colors are absolutely gorgeous. Each month uses the associated birthstone (and color) as its theme, and also incorporates the month number (April being “4,” for example). The moon is featured in many of the paintings, creating a dramatic focal point.

    The paintings themselves are so bold and colorful, they radiate energy into the room, and create a mood. I can picture visitors gravitating to the calendar, just as one is drawn to a painting in someone’s home. I doubt there are many calendars that could spark a conversation about art— but this one definitely could!

    If you’re a Marina Kanavaki fan (like me), this calendar will allow you to bring some of her vibrancy, passion, sense of fun, and joie de vivre into your home. Good art and a good influence— you can’t beat that combination.

    Most calendars get discarded at the end of the year. Not this one. I plan to turn mine into a Marina Kanavaki Art Gallery. Maybe I’ll charge admission, and become rich… : )

    My thanks to Marina for a beautiful calendar. It’s certainly my pleasure to write this testimonial.

    • My dear dear friend, words are not enough to thank you for your wonderful words and kindest gesture. Alas, I’ve been abducted by aliens 👽 [yes, even mt. Olympus has been hit!] and wasn’t able to communicate for a long time. I had tried to send brainwaves [I’m sure if you’d look up in the skies you’d see clouds☁️, birds🐓🐣🐥🐧, thunders⚡️, stars⭐️, planets☄️🌚,🌙☀️✨🌍 – you name it, forming the words: THANK YOU!!!!!!, but as I’m new to this form of communication📡, I don’t know whether the messages came through clear! The aliens are still holding me for some -what I hope to be- final formalities🗜🔦✂️📌🔨🔫⚙🔬💉📜🗄 before they release me fully. You, of course, my dear Mark, are the first I’m contacting and ask for your forgiveness. The second will be high authorities [Zeus to be precise] at Mt. O. to get them to prepare vast quantities of ambrosia for you! Once again: T H A N K Y O U !!!!🍨🍨🍨🍨
      PS I’d love to be able to use, neigh, I’d be HONORED to use your gallantly amazing testimonial! It’s sure going to make me walk proudly like a …rooster!!!! [something about that animal this year…. 🙄🤔]

  2. Such a vibrant heart Marina.. And where did that first week in FEB go.. 🙂 love the colours on this calendar Marina .. The Sun is out today and I am going to disappear into it for a while..
