Abstract sumi e Original “Valor and Daring” by Marilyn Wells
Abstract sumi e painting Original, Zen style, with ink wash and both wet and dry brushstroke work by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
Should only be offered
To someone who has
The valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul
Off with a knife
Then weave them into
To protect you.”
I have always loved this poem by Hafiz and believe it is so true - and that is pretty hard to find on this earth - so we’d best look beyond it for the woven blanket that will protect us. When you think about it, it sounds like an enterprise of the great Infinite All and what has been given us if only we will trust it.
These paintings are each unique art works. Imperfections are to be expected and are the hallmark of original art and the artist's hand. 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.
