Good Morning Sunshine! In the studio.

Shibui Foundations

Below there are six foundations. This is the positions I chose when I did the photo shoot. I thought that it had potential. In studying these you will find things according to your imagination. I wont tell you what I see. I would love to hear about what you see.

When you do line work to define what you find it separates one thing in the image from another. If you want something to go beneath another this is done by using dark colors and shading.
This image what you see is texture created by Kosher salt. The salts tends to pool darker around it and when it dries it leaves texture. It also leave salt residue that grows like Jack Frost on a window. Very pretty! I am not sure of how archival this will be.
A yellow water color with dab of white gouache in it. Black India Ink, water brush strokes on paper on paper then tint bled into the wet paper. The salt is still on the paper. Note: The paper if white is Strathmoore. Cream colored it is Reeves BFK. I have no idea what this will be. Sometimes they are just abstract paintings.

Using same materials as above this foundation below was created. I like the grey runs that happened when this was picked up to soon. (below)

Now this one! I see a _______. And I can’t wait to have fun with it! What do you see?

Up close of salt and wetted paper. This is cleared off well with a plastic triangle, done with care.

I began to outline this. I like how I can see how to go into this and have a 3D thing happening.

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
