Happening Soon – Live workshop – August 15, 2020, 10-2:30 p.m. Foothills Art Center in Golden, CO.

“Ink and Joy – Sumi e From the Heart”

Abstract sumi e as taught in my workshop

“My Greening Heart” by Marilyn Wells. Ink on paper – sumi e – 18″ x 24″

“Who would have thought my shriveled heart

Could have recovered greenness? It was gone

         Quite underground; as flowers depart

To see their mother-root, when they have blown,

                      Where they together

                      All the hard weather,

         Dead to the world, keep house unknown.”

-George Herbert  “The Flower” 1829S

It’s a much needed time of sharing and working together.

Distancing and masking will be honored.

I first read this poem when I was fifteen. I didn’t know how true this could be until now. 🙂
