“Me Drifting Home” by Marilyn Wells, Zen Ink Painting Original
Abstract sumi e Zen ink painting Original by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
"Me, drifting home,
Like an unmoored boat."
- Han Shan LXVIII 1922S
The beloved poet, Han Shan "was considered, when an older man, to be an eccentric Taoist, crazy saint, mountain ascetic mystic, and wise fool. He liked to play pranks, tease, joke, and get friends laughing.
I will assume he flourished from around 750 to 800 CE. Han Shan is one of those Taoist-Chan Sages who are reported to have enjoyed very long lives due in part to their sheer luck, all that fresh air, gruel, pure water, long daily walks, rugged individualism, and all those secret Taoist herbs and unusual exercises. Han Shan was a hermit and poet of the T’ang Dynasty (618 – 906)".
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.
If you select the Framed Option, the frame is a clean, modern, charcoal black finish, my personal choice, with a UV acrylic protective cover.
