  1. I love this, Marina, such smooth lines, and my mind is whirling with thoughts of what he/she is thinking! I read in the other comment that you are preparing for another art exhibit and that is awesome. You are so talented, my friend, I wish I could attend to support you. Big hugs! xoxoxo

    • Ah, thank you so much, my dear Lauren! As I’ve kept the comments from the original post, you’re probably read one of them and I was referring to the art show I did years later (2019). I’d love to prepare another one but right now things look pretty grim for art shows. Maybe after all this has passed.
      Big big hugs your way and… your words are the best support! 💕💖🌻💖💕

      • Oh, sorry, Marina, I missed the date. 🙂 I realize it is a grim time for many things, but I hope the opportunity falls in your lap very soon. I’m also glad you included the link to purchase your art because I’m going to take some time to peruse. I’d love to have one of your portraits hanging in our home. Big hugs back to you (bouncing back and forth like a beach ball) 🙂 and I’m happy to support such a talented friend.

        • It’s not easy to see the dates and I never pay any attention to them, so it’s only natural you missed it! Oh, Lauren I really mean it when I say that your words are the best support and encouragement to me, so please know that it’s more than enough!
          Sending love and wishes for a wonderful weekend.

    • This series of paintings were a challenge as I was trying to capture a moment, a thought, an expression in ‘one breath’, so to speak. Oils aren’t exactly the medium to do that, but their intensity have no match. So happy you like it.

  2. Marina, I totally love this one. The lines form such a gorgeous twist, a labyrinthine of mind and heart. You ought to exhibit your work Marina!!! Remain in touch. Cheers.

    • Thanks so much Shaheen for your kind words! These paintings -titled “Characters”- are from my first solo exhibition in Athens [Epohes Gallery], in 1999. I am now in the process of preparing another, so I will let you know where and when. Thanks again for the encouragement, I really appreciate it.

  3. Lady I stock here in my chair about 15 minutes to guess what it is lol ..
    I think i gonna paint it upside down to create Leonardo`s face of teenage mutant ninja turtle Kidding excellent post Marina 🙂

Happy to hear your thoughts
