Abstract sumi e painting Original, Zen style, with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
On a hillside, in springtime,

The blossoms continue to fall.”

What does this little poem tell you? I’d love to hear you thoughts. It gives me pause even as I write this. It feels like the impermanence of all passing things, and also the ever-present infinite consciousness we dwell in. To me it is the mystery that the gap, the pause, creates, that affects me most of all in a wonderful way.
These paintings are each unique art works. Imperfections are to be expected and are the hallmark of original art and the artist's hand, true wabi sabi. Sizes of original mulberry paper painting may vary, each approximately 14” x 18” - mat size is 18” x 22”. Each comes with its own Certificate of Authentication, packaged in a clear sleeve.
I’m happy to send more photos and details upon request. Prints also available.
