Denver’s top City magazine, 5280, @5280magazine, is featuring Marilyn Wells’s abstract sumi e in their Holiday Dec/Jan issue end piece. Such happy news, anytime, especially now, when so many of us artists have been shut down from sharing and showing our art.
Happily interviewed by @ChristineDeOrio, Associate Editor, and @danapsmith79, Art Director, working with my images for the feature. Special thanks to each and Editor Michelle Johnson! Michelle @https://www.5280.com/2019/09/hello-home/

Reading Mary Oliver’s “Swan” today, I found in the frontispiece these quotes, which have also long been favorites of my own…
“Everyone once, once only. Just once, and no more. And we also once. Never again. But this having been once, although only once, to have been of the earth seems irrevocable.”
-Rilke “Duino Elegies”
’Tis curious that we only believe as deep as we live.”- Emerson
