Print -Mercy 3 - "Shelter" by Marilyn Wells
I made this series of paintings as a response to the first Covid shut-down in March 2020. They express the Divine Feminine energy coming into flower, against the chaos of the overly aggressive male energy we all have experienced in this era.
This is the 3rd of the series. Each of the 4 is a Mercy painting in oil.
To read the poem this painting was inspired by, see below, by Rumi…
The fine print you order is made from archival, museum quality giclée ink and 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.
For all prints, expect 7 business days working time, as each is hand printed just before shipping. 20” x 24” ships in a round tube. Contact me for any other questions.
This art work was based on the following poem by Rumi…
Before these possessions you love
slip away, say what
Mary said when she was
Surprised by Gabriel, I’ll hide inside God.
Naked in her room she saw a form
of beauty that could give her new life,
like the sun
coming up, or a rose
opens, she leaped, as her habit was,
out of herself
Into the divine presence.
Here was fire in the channel of her breath,
majesty came. I am smoke
from that fire and proof of its
existence, more than
any external form.
