Good Morning! Coffee at the right! Waiting for packages of books today, that will help with research, some books are reference books for the studio. I have plans to develop a new type of Shibui. This research will create new problem-solving skills.
My research regarding the brain, in part, is to understand the problem solving within the creative process. I think I am not asking the right questions to get the answers I want. That is what research teaches. Research is not scanning, it’s taking the time to read. It is making notes. It is looking for others who can help answer questions. It is also having patience with the self, to begin and end, to follow through. It is knuckling under and having a mindset. It is knowing that if you are consistent, at some point things will avalanche. it is keeping goals in mind and breaking them down into smaller goals. This requires one’s best efforts.
At some point, I will have breakthroughs. I am encouraged by what is happening with one of my instructors, Julia Baker Waite. Her work is different than mine, it is exciting to see.

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
