"I Am Rowing Home" abstract sumi e by Marilyn Wells
Abstract sumi e painting Original, Zen style, with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
…as I row my beautiful, temporary body
though this water-lily world.
-M.O. “Six Recognitions of the Lord” 1914S
The poem is written by Mary Oliver and so beautifully expresses the Zen sensitivity without her ever subscribing to the precepts of Zen.
On watercolor paper, mounted on a wood fiber veneer board, the black is very intense.
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 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.
If you select the Framed Option, the frame is a clean, modern, charcoal black finish, my personal choice, with a UV acrylic protective cover.
I’m happy to send more photos and details upon request.
