Good Morning Sunshine!

Fall is here!

It is such a pretty time of year, fall. This image is a Shibui Found Image Art, I am always surprised with what I find in the action art that makes the foundations. Most of the image is found there. With some intentional work to round out what is found.

You begin with the foundation, find what’s there and work the foundation. It is like a puzzle, and like finding something in the clouds or a stain. Not perfect, but mostly seen. It stems from the imagination. There is no pre-drawn under structure.

Since 2011 I have developed Shibui so that I could explain it, and instruct others. It is always an original art form, and it is a fantastic art therapy tool. It fits all kinds of people. It is a great way to be creative!

I will continue to develop it. I also do research about the creative process that I can finesse Shibui.

Note: There is a need for development of digital Shibui. This would help those paralyses unable to create in any other ways.

I have gained the attention of people who do use Shibui. At this time I am putting together an instructional manual. I have presentations. Once done this will help those instructing in Shibui like one Shibuiest, Julia who plans to take Shibui to cancer patients. Another Shibuiest is writing a children’s book. Another takes hers to an elderly center. You can do a lot with Shibui Found Image Art.

Shibui can be as simple as following edges of water color, or other wet mediums. Great practice for a new Shibuiest.

Best wishes! Pejj Nunes

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is 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
