Very Little Grows on Jagged Rocks

“Very Little Grows on Jagged Rocks” by Marilyn Wells

Brush. Ink. White paper. You think, “I wonder if…” This is your invitation to try your own hand at creating from the heart. Trust yourself as I help guide you on your path of artful discovery. After a little dharma talk and time for questions, comments, we  center (meditate), grounding ourselves; then we explore what might be soulfully expressed through you with ink and brush on paper. Join me for this delightful evening of exploration, painting, and the ancient craft of Sumi e made modern through guided meditation and creation.
