“Free of the World's Traces” by Marilyn Wells, Abstract sumi e Original
Abstract sumi e painting, Zen style print with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes was inspired by
The gorge is long, rocks, and rocks and rocks, jut up.
The torrent’s wide, reeds almost hide the other side.
The moss is slippery even without rain.
The pines sing; the wind is real enough.
Who’s ready to leap free of the world’s traces:
come sit with me among white clouds?
-Han Shan 8th Century -2137S
Do you too dream of a place like this where you can escape the cares of this world? Such was ever the case, as with Han Shan, famous poet of the Cold Mountain book.
14" x 18" - This original is unmounted. Zen Masters actually prefer leaving the paper wrinkled and with rough edges, just as it leaves the hand of the artist, so I am offering these in my Store as well as other mounted paintings. No prints are available on these.
Being unmounted, I am able to offer it to you at a lower price. It ships in a round carton.
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”. Each comes with its own Certificate of Authentication.
