Paint Abstract Sumi e From Your Heart

Paint abstract sumi e from your heart. Find joy through Beholding, Knowing You Are Held, and Releasing the Chi Energy of that so it can grow and expand is the theme of my workshops. A new one is scheduled for August 15, 2020.

Abstract sumi e workshop Behold and Know You are Held

“The Pearl at the Bottom” by Marilyn Wells, 14″ x 18″ on mulberry paper

“When you see a pearl on the bottom,

you reach through the foam and the

    broken sticks

on the surface.”

  Rumi 1831S

What is the Pearl you are seeing through the pandemic and these troubling times? I would love to hear from you. For me, it is in Beholding and Knowing You Are Held, and I want to build my life around that practice. I find my art work following this theme has been my best way. And it is growing and expanding as I do so! I love Joseph Campbell’s quotation below, “Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”
