Abstract sumi e Original by Marilyn Wells based on a poem by Rumi. Ink on Paper

“This Day is Conscious” by Marilyn Wells, 14″ x 18″ $385.00. Available in my store.

“This Day is Conscious of itself.

This day is a lover, bread and gentleness.”

  -Rumi tr. CB 1907S

Isn’t this an amazing thought – even the very day is conscious of itself! Everything is sacred in the Oneness of the All. We must bow down and kiss the ground, then leap for the joy of living!

Besides Abstract sumi e painting based on quote by Rumi, many other abstract sumi e are shown in my blog, as well as on my Instagram account.

These paintings are each unique art works. Imperfections are to be expected and are the hallmark of original art and the artist’s hand, true wabi sabi. Sizes of original mulberry paper painting may vary, each approximately 14” x 18” – mat size is 18” x 22”. Each comes with its own Certificate of Authentication, packaged in a clear sleeve.

I can arrange with you to have framing with a UV acrylic protective cover done by my personal framer, Metropolitan Frame Company, Denver, CO for $255.00 additional. This frame is a clean, modern, charcoal black finish, my personal choice. Contact me for information. Shipping charges may increase slightly.


Also, Prints – AVAILABLE in my Store,

Limited Edition Fine Art Prints, numbered and signed, made from archival, museum quality giclée ink on hot press, acid-free 100% cotton rag media with a fine-tooth surface. Each will have an additional 1/4” white border to accommodate most framing needs, or which you can cut off if you wish. It is packaged in a crystal clear envelope with a sturdy back board for shipping and framing protection.

Each print is hand signed on the back by the artist along with a stamp of authentication.

For all prints, expect 10 business days working time, as each is hand printed just before shipping, although usually less time is needed. Contact me for any other questions.


Lastly, NEXT WORKSHOP: MARCH 26, 2022, 10:00 to 3:30. In this Sumi e class, I will introduce the use of simple elements from nature.  Subjects demonstrated will be tree trunks, four basic trees, basic rock forms, weeds, and simple leaves, plus more.

After a review of brushstrokes and meditative warm-up, you will create abstract Sumi e paintings based on quotes from both ancient Asian poems and contemporary verse or music. FOOTHILLSARTCENTER.ORG FOR DETAILS.

“I want to inspire you to see your own inner spark and light – to experience openness of heart and soul and being more fully alive.” – Marilyn Wells
