Little kids are great! I love to catch moments in time with a camera! One of my favorite things to do is photography. I had taken black and white photography classes in my degree program. One more in color would have e given my concentration. Gerry DeWaters was my professor and played in the Wicked Good Band, They are very funny! Copy and paste. Enjoy!
As our Black and White photography teacher, one day Gerry said to the class, “Now! There is one thing I do not want to see, and that is all of you taking pictures of children!_____But you! He said looking at me. You have a nack, not everyone has that nack to take photos of children, and capturing that special moment, You! I want to see more pictures of children! I have to say he had me going there for a few, but I was flattered as he finished. I studied the photos he referred to. And what he saw is what made taking those photos special. You may have to take 3 or 4 on either side, but in those kinds of moments, there will be that something special. And you click, and hope you tail it! An essense____magic! A glint of mischievousness. Miss Emma pursing her lips like that says so much! I thought “You cheeky little monkey!” How old are you? Yet there she was conveying a thought. As pleased as punch with her new pocketbook that was like Moms. But this one was hers! This is mine! All mine!
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
