Then, there is always the Shibui instructional book.
These have sat on the back burner because my focus is on Shibui Found Image Art. The one thing we must do as artist is to plan the way forward and not be all over the place with every project out. It doesn’t mean we should forget them. But if one dog wont hunt another is there if we make not of them. The thing is not to forget your ideas. Writing ideas down in a Business journal helps. Telling someone else about your ideas will keep them in mind.
Sometimes there is time for 2 projects. Limiting time, once established will ensure the projects you have will move forward. Writing the blogs, helping the folks in my Facebook “Shibui Found Image Art Live group is imperative! This is a control group. This means that they too are developers of Shibui concepts. The goal of the group is that I can learn what others can do with Shibui’s foundation. I am very pleased with others do. My role is to teach what I know and guide them. Another goal is to create revenue streams with Shibui. There are many people who can not work outside of their homes, who are artistic, yet can not work outside of their homes. I remember the days when I did not know how to sell my art. I have not made it “big” but I am confident this can work to help many people! I need to follow through with what I know, what I learned about art and business. Remember consistency! With Tom’s death things slowed down in “Shibui Found Image Art Live” group but they have been very forgiving and kind. I am returning to work. Things do happen in life. Major events that sidetrack you. Even if this happens you can get under sail again. What do you want to happen now was my first question. I did think about how I could make the group work better. Having a written manual is one way. The presentations are good. Then I thought why not blog! It will help me to reach a lot more people about what I do. In doing so a lot of people can take the idea and run with it. Covid has hit the whole world hard. We are hurting everywhere! We need something to help us heal mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually! Shibui does this! So if you know someone who needs an outlet, a job. Shibui can be turned into products. I do not believe there will not be too many people doing Shibui. In today’s world we need to help other people! Doing so locally is a plus. Buy local and enrich your life if you can.
All my life I have wanted to do something for a lot of people and help the world. The idea came from teachers in grammar school into high school. I think because of the times I grew up in. I am not so sure of what happened to some of those people_____but I wont go there. I can do something about me though.
Best wishes! Pejj
