Iam so thrilled to see  Lil’ Frenchie elo‘s work at Commune Utopia!

Elo’s work ranges from seductive, mysterious, sensual, sexy, passionate, sad, restrained, bound, hidden, loving, raw and real. Elo evokes feeling with her work it is palatable. You can feel the emotions she portrays in each piece. Her passion comes roaring through as clearly as the random still calm shots do.

Elo always manages to stir feelings and emotions in me with her work.

Come on by and see how her incredibly beautiful talent affects you.

Commune Utopia hosts an opening party Saturday January 21st @ 1pm slt.

Here is your teleport.

“The delicacy of the female beauty captured in “A Ray of Light” belies the strong contrasts that create a sense of something almost too perfect to belong to the real world– thus belonging imminently to SL. “ taken from Yoru’s announcement at CU.

Commune Utopia is featuring the artistry of Rocksuriya.

‘Artificial Sasquatch Diagnosis’

“A study in the virtual male form”

Rock tastefully shows off his physique in a erotic sensual way. The Real life look he acquires through his use of lighting and shadow. The way the light plays on the pixels brings to life the still forms, This exhibit is sure to tantalize your senses as it so softly eases the eye into appreciation of the male form.

I really love his play of light and flesh each piece draws your eye in making you imagine what you don’t see. Rock’s work brings a smile to your face and tantalization to your imagination.

 Art in the park series for December 2016 @ Holly Kai.

I am excited to be exhibiting my photos in Holly Kai’s Art in the park series for the month of December.

It was hard to choose photos to exhibit. I thought most of my photos were self indulgent Topless Tuesday shots. There are a lot of those but I was happily surprised.

I do have sim’s  visited and many other photos too.

Two photographers I have admired a long tome and followed on flickr will be there

Caitlin Tobias and Blues Rocker.

Caitlin explained a bit more about her exhibit on her blog

Cait’s World.

I love that her exhibit lets you play with the pose!

Apparently Caitlin Tobias and I were quick at setting up as of this morning no one else had their exhibits up so they will be a surprise.

Kayly Iali and Kody Meyers fill out the 2d exhibitors.

I am unfamiliar with their work and looking forward to seeing it.

The 3d artist for December is Franx Lafavere

In April of 2016 Frankx Lafavere did a Lea Installation called Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor a dark build expressing anxiety, panic disorder. The resulting piece was incredible.

Inara Pey Blogged it here

The Linden Endowment for The Arts blogged it here

I have no idea what Franx Lafavere will share with us at Holly Kai.

He is an incredible Artists and I am sure it will be amazing!

I hope you can join us for the opening Dec 3rd at 12 noon.

This is a formal event so please dress up and be prepared to dance.

Winston Ackland will be performing Live for us !

Winston’s warm heartfelt vibe and wonderful talent is a pleasure in any scene however it is really special to me that he is playing an opening I am part of!

Submission life & Art

Exhibit and photo by elo
Exhibit and photo by elo

Today i went to check out a very moving art exhibit at Nitroglobus rooftop gallery

Always Closer by Lil’ Frenchie elo

I have been following her work on flicker for quite awhile now and her sensual style has always caught my eye. With this exhibit it feels like she shows a bit more of herself  letting the viewer into her private space.

This exhibit is skillfully done with great photography, poses and shadows however what struck me most about this series of photos is the feeling of trust and vulnerability.

Elo shows a tenderness and softer strength in her work. Viewing these photos brings a feeling of passion with a caring softness.

Submission is different for everyone who chooses to submit. Looking at Elo’s photos you see the healthy side of submission a tender caring and solid trust. A sensual opening to each other is a bond that many relationships reach for and those that make it there are beautiful to see.

Dido Hass has again shared greatness with us in her gallery this is an exhibit well worth your time and thought! See what Dido is doing in her blog Exploring Sl with Dido

Elo’s bio note from the exhibit.

“I don’t like to talk about myself very much, so I will keep it short; here is what i will share with you:

I am an old SL Resident ;-), in real life I am French, living in north of France.

When i started to make photos in Second Life, I liked to make portraits. With the years, and the people I met, I wanted to explore the BDSM side of SL, that is, I have to specific, by making photos, because from what I learned to submit to someone is not a small thing.

Most of all I want my pictures to express deep feelings, and often I add songs to them, to make them stronger, music is part of my life too.

Here, in this exhibition, I wish to express the changes in my SL, as well as in my real life. This year has been full of emotions, good and not so good, but all very intense.

The little submissive girl didn’t find her Master, or maybe she did, but not a master from a BDSM world. Now that I know what submission means to me, I guess I always knew, however, it’s more clear to me now.

Submission is the ability to give the best of you to the one you love, without any questioning about the reasons of this love. It’s there, that’s all and you must show it, you must say it, and get Always Closer to it, because life is too short.

And because every beautiful story ends like this, the little girl dreams that ‘Ils se marièrent et eurent beaucoup d’enfants’ :-)”

“I hope you will enjoy this exhibition. I give you a song which I love and which reflects this exhibition very well”

“Special thanks to Exa (Exa Valkoinen) for his patience, and being a help, a model, a friend, a partner and so much more.

Enjoy!  Elo “

Death and Time

29844255084_6cd2984052_b
headless divinity photo by owl

No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away” Terry Pratchett

Those we love we continue to love even when their walk on the earth has ended. The love and memories hold the connection. Death is part of our natural cycle of living. Those afraid to die seldom really live.

My Father was not afraid. He enjoyed life and taught me many things. He was alone most of his adult life and taught me a self-reliance and appreciation for the quiet of being alone. I was very lucky he was conscious and made all of his own decisions right up to the end. He asked for the plug to be pulled all I did was hold his hand and be there. He squeezed my hand and I heard his breath leaving I squeezed back and told him I loved him.

It felt as if the world stopped and I needed to slow down life doesn’t work that way.

Things, burocratic red tape, paperwork and everything you have to do once a parent dies feel harsh and cold. Suddenly you find yourself dismantling their life and time doesn’t stop. Seven months later I am still in probate and clearing my father’s stuff. (I am told sometimes it takes years)

You can’t go back and you can’t stand still.. “ GD

Greif, grieving seems different for all of us. For me it is in waves, I love and think of my father daily. I have moments where it’s all overwhelming and I am lost.

The nagging stress questioning, am I dealing with his stuff right, what is this thing, what do I do with it, why is there so much stuff.

I keep seeing things and they mean nothing.

Why do we spend our lives surrounding ourselves with things?

No stuff is worth what a few more hours of time are worth to me.
