My Art of Heart and Soul in Troubled Times – Sumi-e 4

There is an inner power which, when discovered within, frees one from reliance on force to exist in this world. I express this in my sumi-e artworks inspired by poetry or quotations from various sources.

These works convey my own path to inner awakening to that power; I hope they may inspire you as you continue in your own inner path of discovery.

“So the darkness shall be light,

and the stillness the dancing.”

“East Coker” – T.S. Eliot 184S

In stillness and in silence one may discover new depths of intuitive knowing instead of being dominated by fear.

Words move, music moves

Only in time; but that which is only living

Can only die. Words, after speech, reach

Into the silence.

“”Burnt Norton” – T.S. Eliot 185S

The contemplative depth of silence is a gateway to intuitive knowingness that alleviates fear, the basis of so much of the chaos and turmoil in the world at this time. From that point one may act in the world with compassion and caring instead of feeling a need to erect barriers against fellow human beings.

"Love Hawk" 186S by Marilyn Wells—14”x 18” on mulberry paper, mounted—$320 abstract sumi-e

“Love Hawk” 186S by Marilyn Wells—14”x 18” on mulberry paper, mounted—$350,  double mounted on mat board—$450, framed—$875

“This dove here senses

the love-hawk floating above

and waits and will not be driven

or scared to safety.”

-Rumi 186S

You may feel in this intimations of the presence of spirit, which is inner power. This dimension embodies values like compassion, courage, hope, love, generosity of spirit.

May you be strengthened and not lose courage on your own inner journey to real strength and power.
