    That diamond is brilliant in every way!!!!! Hope all is well with you Marina.

  2. You’ve been very quiet, Amiga. Hope all is going well, and you’re in a serious creating mode..

    • My sweet friend, it’s the first time I’ve been so quiet -almost two months. I’m beginning to wonder whether it’d be better if I were abducted by aliens, but no. I’ve entered a negative universe for a while from which I’m reemerging victoriously! Hence you’ll gradually be seeing some changes. Meantime, I just wanted to let you know, I AM well now and thank you so much for your wishes. I am now in a “serious creating mode”! 😉 Missed my visits and I hope you are well and creative as always too! Hugs Amiga! xxxxxxxx

  3. Just dropping in dear Marina.. to see how you are doing.. Wishing you a wonderful May.. Hope you are not working too hard..
    Sending LOVE and warm wishes… Hugs Sue xxx ❤ 💛💚💖

    • My dearest Sue, thanks so much for dropping in! Hard to believe it’s been so long, almost two months. I’ve literally been drawn in by a rather negative vortex however, it couldn’t cope with me, so, I’m happy to say, I’m gradually returning! I’m sure your wishes and love also helped disperse that little annoying vortex. Sending you love zillionfold and many hugs! xxxxxxxxxxxx

      • Sorry to hear that Marina.. Sometimes its impossible not to get drawn into some particular personal vortex’s.. They remind us we are human with human emotions, but each one I have been sucked into has enabled me to later on in life see why they happened, as they helped sever or serve me, to shred or strengthen layers within me..
        I am just delighted to know you are now emerging back out through the otherside of your tunnel my friend..
        Take your time for YOU are the important ONE..
        Sending So much love and I so felt that zillion-fold .. Mega hugs returned..
        Love and Blessings in all you do.. xx
        Sue ❤ 💐😘💖

  4. Very beautiful. I looked at it wondering how you produced it, then read below and saw the mix of media. Nice work.

  5. Marina, Your Diamond Four painting. Brings such harmony and balance of this planet of ours.
    Earth is happy and blessed that you’ve touched her heart.
    Marina, you bring the balance of who we are as creative people.

    Thank you my friend for you always being you.

    Love this new work from you. 🙂

  6. Have a wonderful Easter weekend dear Marina.. Love and Blessings.. Enjoy.. 💐🌸🌹🌾🌷🌼

    Wow, what a gem! Such pretty colors, Marina.

  9. What girl doesn’t love diamonds? You created a beautiful one in this April painting, Marina.
    I hadn’t heard the song by Nat King Cole. I enjoyed litening to it very much. He’s always had a smooth and romantic singing voice. 🌹🌹🌹
    Have a sparkling weekend …. It’s in the mid 70’s here. I plan to goto the beach and relax.
    Hugs and 💋💋💋

    The color palate and the diamond add up to awesome … I love it … and then to top it off with Nat King Cole … perfect.

  11. clinock says:

    This is a geometric wonder my friend, dancing so very well with angular 4. And how lovely to hear Nat Cole again, mellow in the rain…March in Vancouver was wettest in 60 years and it continues…I rust, I rust!

  12. Just love how you have got that Diamond effect Marina.. 🙂 very clever.. I have been messing around in PowerPoint to create two images, which will be on a soon to be post.. 🙂 Its a first for me.. Not that good, but they serve the poem that i will be adding them too..
    Hope you have a good week Marina.. its a little April showery here today.. Hence why I am jumping onto WordPress to catch up a little..

    Sending Love for the rest of your week.. Hugs Sue xxxxx ❤
