Abstract sumi e painting Original, Zen style, with ink wash and both wet and dry brushstroke work by Marilyn Wells was inspired by Duke Ellington's much loved

“Pay no attention to what's said...
Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream
Is over my head…
Do nothing till you hear it from me”
-Duke Ellington 1863S

The line that is maybe most poignant is “Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream
Is over my head”

and perhaps the sumi e would be better named that. Have you ever had someone shoot you down when you were dreaming big? We must dream big as we are co-creators with God. I’m struggling right now to begin actual, physical art work again, having devoted the past 3 months to developing on online store presence. Sometimes I’ve been asked, why do you keep pursuing that - just get a well-paying job. But I dream on and try to keep the seams of my dreams knit tight to my heart.

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.

I’m happy to send more photos and details upon request. Prints also available.

Special packing and shipping available with UPS. I can arrange with you to have framing with a UV acrylic protective cover done by my personal framer, Metropolitan Frame Company, Denver, CO for $255.00. This frame is a clean, modern, charcoal black finish, my personal choice. Contact me for information. Shipping charges may increase slightly.
