A tender flower on a pond, newly bloomed, untouched, left upon the surface to thrive through grave storms. Left to bask in warmth of golden light that peaks through the darkest clouds; to thrive of it own accord. It does, in all its tenderness, holding back in its knowing and unyielding form. There it is, among other flowers, unseen, untouched, alone___. Unlike the rest it stands of its own accord unfolding in all its splendor. Yielding to nothing in the waters wake. Strongly anchored, deep. Gently, gently, gently,____. Rising up, and down, and up again in its balanced wisdom, where observed. It knows, and has becomes whole, unique, beautiful attributes of a Lily on a pond.
I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.”
Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
