Beholding – Knowing Your Are Held – Abstract Sumi e Paining

Beholding and Knowing I am Held in these troubled times is a way of finding Joy I have discovered after many years of art making and meditation. We’re looking for inspiration, for therapeutic fulfillment in these troubled times. Here is what I did today and what I teach in my workshops.

This follows up on my blog post from last week, were I am learning how to best communicate this process to you. First the image, which actually came last in the process.

“Grey March Day” abstract sumi e by Marilyn Wells. This painting is based on the haiku I wrote today after walking the empty park.

You can also click on this link Cold March Day 2 to find in your Downloads a short video I made on the spot, one of several, that helped me hold the image in mind as the day went by and the process continued.

This process is a subject for a day long workshop on Beholding and Knowing you are Held; however, you can begin to imagine how you could modify it for the time you have right now in your life, which for many is more abundant than it was a month ago!

More information to follow in future blogs.
