“We Drink Life Water Together” – by Marilyn Wells –  Oil on birch panel 14” x 18” – $480

“Without reference to texts or traditions
We drink the life water together.”
-Rumi – Chinese and Greek Art 2202OC

This is part of a new series of Sacred Earth Feminine paintings, richly textured and deeply evocative of the Neolithic era which also inspire the work. First, when I create these works, I feel that my hand is touching the hands of an artist and the woman whose portrait was created 10,000 years ago, originally in clay. Finally, I feel a circle of humanity is complete, and I am blessedly a part of it.
