My resolutions are the things that make me so infatuated with the art of silhouette cutting, an art that discovered me when I was a teenager. Prior to that, my shy self remembers always sketching and drawing, and spending hours of joy with my mother, painting, sketching, doing clay and art projects. The silhouette artists have a natural ability to see beyond 3 D, they can see into the soul. There are few of them around (perhaps 18 to 28) in the world, and they are known to know physiognomy, the science of people reading by feature. Not that one should do that, as that is a form of prejudice, but we do get a feeling about others, or an instinct. For me with this rare art, I can go into my Zen state, blank out all the world, but you, or the subject I will portrait with scissors, erasing my mind of patter and negative thoughts, reaching zen, saying yes, to love, and s for silence of listening to you, tell me about you. It brings laughter, is my karma, my prayer answered before asked. It came from void to creation. The art is so unique, and those who have mastered hand-cut paper silhouette cutting (and not those who have to sketch it first or trace it or photograph or computer photo shop it) go to another level to create your profile, or the master paper pieces. They all get a third eye. It is an A to Z for life, for that I am a silhouetteguru, and so are my fellow silhouette artists, the silhouette artist, the silhouette art, thanks and blessings.
