"When Angels Gather” Abstract sumi e Original 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
“As usual, when angels gather,
They draw a following of devils:
gangsters, ganefs, and hard-luck women.”
_Michael Chabon “The Yiuddish Policeman’s Union” 1880S
This quote struck me as both very likely true as well as hilarious. Somehow I relate to it myself. I found the quote in “The Yiddish Policemen's Union”, a 2007 novel by American author Michael Chabon.
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.
I can arrange to have framing with a UV acrylic protective cover done by my personal framer, Metropolitan Frame Company, Denver, CO for $255.00 additional. This frame is a clean, modern, charcoal black finish, my personal choice. Packing and Handling charges will apply. Choose the “With Frame” Option.
