  1. Great designs for February!
    I wish I could ever get something done in a simpler way, not the large complex paintings, but I suppose we are who we are.
    I always enjoy your blog posts about art and also hope your February is happening on the right tune. I’m seeing the cheerful colors, so I take the ride is smooth.

    • Thank you, my dear Inese, indeed, we are who we are… not always as we’d like! In art school, all my tutors advised me to not stay long on a painting and while everyone would take lots of time in life drawings, I would produce many🙄. Not so environmentally friendly!🤣
      Hope February is a smooth and cheerful month! 😉

  2. By the way, I see in the American Heritage Dictionary that February for the Romans was the month of purification, and that the Latin word februa meant ‘expiatory offerings’ and was possibly of Sabine origin.

  3. As I slowly scrolled down from “2 Magnifique” to Detail Une to Detail Deux to Detail Trois, I felt like The Incredible Shrinking Man, a film classic from 1957. And yet as I shrank and became ever more immersed in the exquisite detailed beauty, I found my mind expanding!!– and that doesn’t happen too often!! Thank you, dear Marina, for allowing me to fully experience the mind-body connection!! 🚀 ☁️ 🌖 💥 🚑 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 👽 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 🍨 😋 😘

    • Ah, my dear kind Sir Mark, I cannot imagine a more expanded mind, hence it was decided by Zeus, that you become the recipient of ambrosia (the fine quality only meant for him) for life, in fact all lives, for your special kindness and generosity!


  4. Happy February, dear Marina!
    I drew your Picasso gown last night.
    I just mailed it to you. Hope you love it!

    So….advice, please.

    So all the AGMs & RR are wearing Picasso gowns. Lala LaSwirl (now being played by Charlotte Hoather) shows up in a Degas gown, just to be a thorn in RR’s side. Of course RR will do a costume change to get back at Lala. What is a good artist for me to design that gown from?


    • A ha ha… eventhough my math teacher thought highly of me, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t agree with my visions of numbers! 😉 Thank you for your sweet words, my friend! Looking forward to a journey to another month with you! 🤗❤

  5. You palette is always exquisite, Marina! I love how the cool purple (of winter) is sprinkled with warm yellow (spring) hiding but never gone for long. “Below” for now, but soon to be “above.” 🙂

Happy to hear your thoughts
