I made a nice supper of cube steak and broccoli tonight and then I stopped working about 9:00, set down and watched a movie about Georgia O’Keefe. That was interesting. I have always meant to read about her because I love her work. Now, I will have to dig out books and see what I can glean from them.
I will organize my pastel pencils and prepare the studio, so it can become my break from writing. I have an interview I need to set up for as well. Then I will put a mission-style desk in here to work at in the corner opposite of this corner. That table will let me spread out more, as it is a long, slim library table. I can set up the desktop computer on that. Feels like more claiming the house! That’s a good thing.
Another pivot in thinking is, there are a few things Tom would have done, and well I can do them! So I will. One is putting a screw in the couch after some wood glue to fix the back. And I can fix a kitchen draw____.
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
