For this I wrote a little haiku: ______________________________________Cicadas singing shadows deep, cottonwood trees. Secret stealth of Fall... _____________________ This was a recent summer morning when I walked around the park. Sometimes a Great Blue Heron silently ignores me in favor of his breakfast. _____________________ You have to discover your beauty everywhere. I like the thought of living in awe, as I mostly do! _____________________ #artofslowliving #verilymoment #cityofdenver #livebeautifully #amomentofwonder

Do you dream of simple beauty? The dream of being a beautiful woman? We all are, you know. A drawing after Matisse I just finished. These will soon be available on my website through Shopify. Original line drawings - $200. Contact me through my bio for early sales. _____________________ “You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.There is beauty in the simple gesture. -Mary Oliver _____________________ You have to discover your own beauty. _____________________ Mary Oliver has said what is in our hearts as women. Now she is gone and we will read her all the more often. _____________________ I’ve only just discovered her myself. _____________________ #artistatwork #drawingwomen #woman drawing

Lazy time of summer enchantments are calling me away from my painting... _____________________ But just for a little while. _____________________ This is a Lily Martagon “Arabian Nights.” Bought by default, but placed where the morning sun on the back patio shines through from behind—lifts my heart. _____________________ A nice surprise before the heat of the day. I wish it could stay forever. _____________________ Well, maybe just a bit longer! :) _____________________ #slowflowers #myeverydaymagic

The is the last of a series of tiny oils 5” x 5.5” _____________________ “Mother Reading Newspaper” by Marilyn Wells, oil on canvas _____________________ The subject is from many years ago and is a fitting Memorial Tribute to my Mother, who loved Memorial Day, having lived through a couple of World Wars. She loved to visit the cemeteries on Memorial Day, to see the peonies, and think about the war days, now they were over. _____________________ Missing my Mother and those days today. _____________________ But happy for the blessings this time brings me, moreso than sad! _____________________ #studioart #artistatwork

A little time again for playing with Sogetsu ikebana… _____________________ For me, this is a time of relaxed focus of absolutely no consequence. Freshness of flowers, harbingers of spring… _____________________ Except that I do enjoy working for a couple of hours with others who have a passion for flowers, the beautiful and the spiritual connection. _____________________ I reminded myself to actually sit a moment after a happy conclusion, confirmed by my teacher Midori, and simply contemplate my creation. _____________________ It’s really hard work! For me. And I’m still on Page 3 of the book only! Lol! Moving right along… #ikebana #sogetsu #livebeautifully #amomentofwonder

Welcome to our World! We made our very first “live video” last night, on marilyn_wells_sumi_e, as a celebration of the Full Blood Super Moon, Wolf Moon, Eclipse, and changes that are transpiring in all our lives. It’s still available for a few hours if you click on my photo where the circle is at the top left of my page. _____________________ We honored the work of Lynne McTagart’s “Power of Eight” in a group of eight plus virtual participants. We clarified our intentions, both personal and for our world, joined together in a circle, centered ourselves, and spent a good half hour sending and receiving energy from one another and for our next month, coming year, for ourselves and for the world. Then we closed and released it all in to the universe. _____________________ “Inviting the Mystic”—My One Woman Art Show. Reception and Demonstration is January 25, 2019, and You are invited, Metropolitan Framing on Broadway in Denver, 7 p.m..

May we learn from each other as we discover the deep truths and knowing within ourselves through the contemplation and sharing together.” _____________________ Stop for a moment with just one of my paintings, one you are attracted to. Look deeply while being aware of your own inner body sense as you BE with the work. _____________________ What comes up for you? What is your own inner, bodily sense of what this is about and what it means for you? How does it inform your life going forwards into the real, mundane world? _____________________ Don't be surprised you are transformed, if you allow the process. #sumi #modernink #wabisabi

“Girl Sleeping on Idhra”, oil on canvas, 8” x 10”, is a painting I made after I adventured alone to the Greek Island of Idhra for 2 weeks to paint and savor the sunshine and blue Agean Sea. _____________________ The island is one of those rarities - no motor vehicles are on the island, except the garbage pick ups! The travel is all by burro. _____________________ I fell in love with the entire island, where I walked up and down throughout my stay, watercolor carrying bags over my arm. I would sit down and paint happily every day, and also in my little suite of rooms when I returned. _____________________ The weather was cool in September, and this painting was from a sketch of the room where I slept. I had a balcony where new friends and I shared local pastries and wine. _____________________ The memory of that experience is one of my dearest. At the end, I spent a couple of days in Athens, lost at one point, but satisfying a little bit of my curiosity about this exotic place. _____________________ I feel the need to return to figurative in between my explorations of sumi. I love drawing and painting the figure and must honor this talent as well! You can find me on marilyn_wells_sumi_e on IG! #oiloncanvas #artwork #denver # #studioart #artistatwork

“Mother and Child in Rocking Chair”, oil on canvas, 20” x 24” is the resolution in my search for solace from the anguish of the American situation of separating children from their parents at the border. _____________________ The “Broken Rocking Chair” - “In the Interest of National Security” (published earlier here on my IG site) was my immediate painting of the emotion so many of feel about this situation! _____________________ The technique for this new painting is one I had wanted to try all my life, wet in wet. I believe it was successful and conveyed the mood, which was really of myself and my Mother in the late 40’s. _____________________ I have written more about my thoughts on these two paintings. You can find them via my bio link to my website (where you can sign up for my monthly emails),then click on my blog, marilynwellsartjournal.com when you get there. _____________________ Do you like my painting? What do you see in it yourself? I love to read your comments! _____________________ For the near future I will focus on my sumi e until I feel the need to return to figurative.

New little Kuan Yin, hand carved, blessing the last dahlias of summer. _____________________ Summer was just filled with blessings of warm sunlight, lush growth, and the richess of flowers! _____________________ I love the phrase, “I live in a very small house in a very large garden.” _____________________ And it’s become my life, which was once only a dream. _____________________ Do you believe dreams come true? _____________________ Almost all my dreams have come true-but for two.

It always feels like summer has just begun and it’s already being cooler at night & in the early morning.
