"The Gate" Zen Abstract sumi e original by Marilyn Wells
Abstract sumi e Zen painting Original, with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
“Darkness of darkness!
The gate to all mystery!”
-Tao Te Ching 1921S
Darkness. What does darkness represent? Emptiness? What cannot be known? This is the voice of the Tao, letting you know, indeed, this is the gate to all mystery. As you practice meditation and the dharma or teachings, and live in faith, you will find the Gate.
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.
