Zen Abstract Ink Painting “Dive Deeper” by Marilyn Wells Original
Zen Abstract Ink Painting Original, sumi e style, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
"Dive Deeper Under"
You have been walking ocean’s edge,
Holding up your robes to keep them dry.
You must dive deeper under,
a thousand times deeper.
- Rumi (CB) 1833S -3
I’ve painted several versions of this poem.
What does it make you think you might dive deeper under to realize? For myself, It is a reminder that I must become more single-minded rather than fractured into multiplicity. It is a blessing of maturity and knowing who I am. You are becoming that too. We are all walking together, not far apart. But it’s good to keep seeking, to keep exploring, finding who you are and how you are in relationship with everything else.
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.
