Earlier this summer, my sister invited me to join her and an inspirational artist group called Shibui Found Image Art Live. I finished my first piece this week.
The concept is to find what is there, much like finding something in the clouds, it is solving a puzzle. Once you find what is there you follow the lead of the images to create Shibui’s stories; by creating what the foundation suggest. Peji Nunes
With a sheet of watercolor paper, and a new colour palette, I began my journey to become a Shibuist. Applying all of the colours on my palette to my paper, I watched the colours mingle and flow, blending to create their own colour combinations.
When the paper was dry, I began searching for and finding faces of all shapes and sizes.
The more colour I added to the paper, the more faces appeared.
I’m hoping a story line will develop as more pages are created.
People who create Shibui Found Image Art are called Shibuiest. Pejic Nunes.

Thanks Aira! It was so much fun to do. It’s also a great form ofaart therapy. I’m looking forward to the story developing.
I love your painting journey through this post! It turned out very interesting… can’t wait to read your story!
Thank you so much! My latest work includes 4 still life paintings for my granddaughter’s dollhouse.
