“Black Petals and Fire” by Marilyn Wells, Zen Abstract sumi e Print
"Black Petals and Fire " Abstract sumi e Zen Print by Marilyn Wells, Zen style, with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes was inspired by
“When the burning begins
The most thoughtful among us dreams
Of hurrying down
Into the black petals
Into the fire
Into the night where time lies shattered
Into the body of another.“
- Mary Oliver 1834S
When I first started painting in my carport on the super large paper with my new 40” brushes, experimenting and having fun, was when I also fell in love with Mary Oliver for the first time. Since then, many times. What is the poem about? You know. I’m not sure the original exists anymore. But prints are available.
This is a Limited Edition Fine Art Print, numbered and signed, made from archival, museum quality giclée ink on hot press, acid-free 100% cotton rag media with a fine-tooth surface. Each will have an additional 1/4” white border to accommodate most framing needs, or which you can cut off if you wish. It is packaged in a crystal clear envelope with a sturdy back board for shipping and framing protection.
Each print will be hand signed on the back by the artist along with a stamp of authentication.
For all prints, expect 10 business days working time, as each is hand printed just before shipping, although usually less time is needed. Contact me for any other questions.
