“The Lover Wakes -2” 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
The Lover Wakes
“Like this universe coming into existence,
the lover wakes, and whirls in a dancing joy,
then kneels down
Rumi CB “Birdsong from Inside the Egg” -1912S
What I love about this sumi e painting is that it looks hesitant, not predictable, as the course of love often is. One looses ones bearings and aplomb in the course of true love, and I feel this image shows that. It makes me smile because it's not as smooth and perfect in form as some of my other sumi e paintings. Painted from my heart and soul - not my linear way of thinking. Enjoy!
On watercolor paper, mounted on a wood fiber veneer board, the black is very intense.
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 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.
I’m happy to send more photos and details upon request.
Prints also available.
