"Roar of Wind Rain" Sumi e abstract original by Marilyn Wells. Ink on Paper
Abstract sumi e painting, Zen style, print with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
A roar —
And the rain wind.
Sengai, poet quoted here, was a very famous Japanese Zen poet 300 years ago. He is perhaps most famous for his "Universe" painting, a simple square, triangle and circle, one slightly overlapping the other. That painting is as good as a Koan for meditating on the subject. Try it and see.
This original is unmounted. Zen Masters actually prefer leaving the paper wrinkled and with rough edges, just as it leaves the hand of the artist, so I am offering these in my Store as well as other mounted paintings. No prints are available on these.
Being unmounted, I am able to offer it to you at a lower price. It ships in a round carton
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”. Each comes with its own Certificate of Authentication.
I’m happy to send more photos and details upon request.
