“Heaven and Earth for Clothes” by Marilyn Wells. Abstract sumi e original
Abstract sumi e painting Original, Zen style, with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
There a beggar goes!
Heaven and earth he’s wearing
for his summer clothes.
- Basho 1906S
We haven’t far to look now in America for the beggar, tho this writing might have evoked a romantic image as recently as 50 years ago in our country. Still there is truth poetry in the image. Sparse simplicity many of us yearn for in our complex world today.
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.
