It’s hard to believe it is 2022! The first thing I ask myself is “What do I do with this year?” Of course, I know it means writing a lot, and it will mean artwork too! I plan to work on the physical and mental self. These are the usual things people strive for.
I think I will be more of the grandmother too. Bring out the fun in me. The teacher sometimes. Lots of love, hugs, kisses____.
I want to read more books for fun. Do some fishing and camping this year, and sketch. Swim, and take walks.
I want to finish clearing the house of “junk” keep changing it up to make all rooms cozy.
And start teaching Shibui live. Do some printmaking as well.
Get the hammer and nails out and repair some things. Pressure clean the deck. Paint, and get the garden going again. It was lovely sitting on the deck with morning coffee.
I look forward to 2022! Let’s all have a wonderful new year!

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
