Yes! Good morning___May your day be blessed! May kindness and find their way in!
I am excited! Today two wonderful leather-bound books arrived! I purchased these to read with my grandchildren. One day the books I buy for them will become theirs, to read to their own babies. I told their mother, my first baby, that books were an adventure! That they are to be treasured. I’ll impart this also to my grandchildren. A surprise when they come next. The two books are: The Never Ending Story, for Oliver Thomas and The Princess Bride, for Miss Emma.
It may be that my story of Ruby Luna can be shared then too. But first, before finishing this, I will be filling out and writing for a grant application for the Maine Art Commision. My proposal Shibui Found Image Art.
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
