Ocean Rider was my first full Shibui Found Image Art. Several years ago now, this Shibui, and a similar ocean image sold for about $3,500 framed. The purchaser was looking or original art, in its beginning phase. To be a first is apparently a prized thing. The frame on these were green and gold, and one could imagine some kind of sea weed framed the works.
The thing about creating Shibui is that it is unique to its creators imagination. It makes its own rules of procedure to be followed. If you let it, a story unfolds.
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
Beautiful, reminds me of japenese satsuma pottery a bit.
Oh! Love the comment. I get a lot of people saying that Shibui reminds them of Japanese prints, etc not pottery yet! I will have to look at that! I love and have a small collection of Japanese prints.
My mom used to collect satsuma ware. Just looking at that orange colour reminded me.
