  1. I can’t believe it took me so long to see this … the return of the Marina Swooshes! … Besides the collection of swooshes, I appreciate the closeups of select portions of your work. As a nonpainter, the subtle details that I never imagined with watercolors. Love the cerulean tree! Yamas!

  2. I LOVE the flowing strokes, Marina. It looks like the tree is dancing to Mother Natures flowing wind. The colors you’ve chosen are peaceful and quiet. I think you’ve created a masterpiece of sweet joy. Lovely … 😍🤩 Stay Safe 😷 Isadora 😎

  3. Wow, superb weblog structure! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for? you make blogging glance easy. The whole glance of your site is magnificent, as well as the content!

  4. i love the different blues (Cerulean) here. It just gives such depth. And the tree is so graceful with its arms reaching up. It reminds me of hope really. Another wonderful work, Marina. I really love your art.

      • I got it right? 🙂 To me, tree branches reaching for the sky have always seemed to me to be a positive hopeful thing. Where I live, the natural environment has what I call bush-trees, and the feeling the tall trees give me is mostly gone, and I miss that.

        So this work really resonates with me, Marina. Very well done.

        • Thank you so much Katie! [coincidentally listenning to Jethro Tull: “Roots to branches”!] As I live in a very troubled country on this planet, I find myself in need for hope, so I suppose my brain & hands ‘automatically’ work in that direction!

      • I’m so sorry you live in a troubled country, but I hope you’re not troubled, Marina. I see you live in Athens. Such a wonderfully historic and ancient place.But so troubled to be sure. I live in a US state that is poor (I’ll include myself in that) in a country that is still so wealthy, and a town that is filled with so much poverty, but so much wealth also. And I reach for tall trees as hope also. So your work does appeal to me in a deep way. And I thank you.Take care, Marina.
