Good Morning Sunshine! Joyce Hifler, once again!

I love to find silhouettes. I painted these in oils in my early days.

I love these books, her words___they soothe the soul and express what I would love to say myself, and glad of what I believe, and glean as being so.

“There seems to be a time for everything____a creative time when we begin to build something new____a time of order when we put everything in its right place____a time of sadness when laughing is at one end and crying at the other playing yo-yo with the emotions____There is a time when the pendulum of faith swings high and in its full swing also finds the lows___there is a time when amiability and agreement are light and easy____and a time when there is no neutral ground on which to work___a time for sheer happiness so that nothing is accomplished except on dancing feet____and a time when the spirit is so submerged in the God everywhere present, that a lack of courage would be impossible.”

“Life has so much more beauty than unpleasantness that we cannot ignore the comet’s tail____the meteor flashing across a star-studded sky___a cool breeze carrying the fragrance of honey suckle___the early dawn misty pink and golden___a sweet sleep full of quiet breathing and happy dreams___the sun’s golden tanning___the salt air’s tangy breath___and every man’s (and woman’s) faith that takes him nearer to God and love.”

“We cannot forget the opportunity, the time of challenge__the moment of truth, the discovery of a new self we have not known___the fear that can melt away with a little courage___the aching with love for the hurt of someone else____the miracle baby___a rippling brook, the singing trees___There is a purpose to everything under heaven___for He has made everything beautiful in its time.” From To Everything, There Is A Season, Joyce Hifler.

We look to the beautiful skies, as we think about our purpose here. That all there is, and of what we see____Must be made by a great creator, how else could it all be? There is more to it all. And much to learn. So much more to who we are!

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
