"Raven" by Marilyn Wells, Zen style, oil on canvas
36” x 18”, oil on canvas
After the year of covid lockdown, 2020, what did I want to paint? Only the most wabi sabi plain subjects - rocks, bark and weeds. I felt a Raven was right. Like Crows, Ravens are kinda like life. They’re strong more than cute or pretty. Raucous carnivores. Honest integrity of being. Wise and smart.
These sumi e oil painting originals were inspired by our shared love for American landscape, especially the bark of trees, rocks, weeds and the utter simplicity of the woods and wilderness places, sometimes in the mountains, sometimes of the plains. I give them to you as a respite and retreat for your eyes as they were for mine in painting them.
