I try to avoid returning to regions visited as a part of my Exploring Second Life series too soon after blogging about them. However, a tweet from friend Miro Collas prompted me to suggest to Caitlyn we head back to Les Reves Perdus (“Dreams Lost”), the homestead region designed by Chanell (zaziaa) for another look despite having only blogged about it in June.

As Miro pointed out in his tweet, a lot has changed in the two months since that visit. The provincial look has now gone, replaced with something far more Nordic in expression, but which is nonetheless as photogenic, particularly under the right environmental conditions.

The setting is a Viking settlement, the surrounding hills and waves breaking in the distance beyond them suggesting it is perhaps set upon an island towards the mouth of a…

Selfies and an exhibition in Second Life

Club LA and Gallery: Burke Bode

Club LA and Gallery, curated by Fuyuko ‘冬子’ Amano (Wintergeist) has a new ground-level location, which is still partially under construction. To celebrate the move, the gallery is hosting two exhibitions; the first, Selfies: Some of My Faces, by Burke Bode, has been open since July; the second, An Exhibition by Twain Orfan, opens on Sunday, August 20th.

“Pablo Picasso said ‘Everything you can imagine is real,'” Burke says of his exhibition. “He is right. Living in a world that is completely created from scratch just by the imagination of its residents you experience this. A place where you can invent yourself new every day and for a creative person a place where you MUST create yourself new every single day. [I’m] changing my look constantly as shape shifter. Some of my shapes last for a day, for one picture; and some stay.”

Beaches Art Exhibit Artist Interviews…A and Z (well…A and X!)

Iam on hiatus from blogging, hosting etc…
However Second Life doesn’t sleep.
There is always something going on!
So go explore, Iam enjoying it!

Ce Soir Arts - Be inspired tonight!

The BEACHES Art Exhibit is proving to be one of the most intriguing ones we’ve had in some time. Interest is high and we’ve enjoyed encounters with many visitors – a few of whom have left notes in the Guest Book. We so appreciate those comments, as they can be quite important to us as owners and curators of Côte de la Mer Galerie and to the artists who exhibit with us. If you come by, consider leaving your thoughts…and we thank you!

Today, I will post the interview questions responses from two of the artists exhibiting – from both ends of the alphabet! Of course, Æon is my favourite person in all the world, but I am finding that he has a natural talent for in-world photography. It is yet new, but blossoming, and I am enjoying his photos, even those he takes casually at events or locations we…

SL14B Community Celebration; Inara Pey, June 2017, on FlickrSL14B Community Celebration

The excitement and the entertainment of SL14B has come and gone – but the regions still there for a while, and there’s still a fair amount to see, if you haven’t taken the time to do so before now. What’s more the regions are all now a lot quieter, offering more chances to see things, enjoy the rides and take photos. This being the case, I thought I would, as with previous years, share a handful of the exhibits I enjoyed just in case they appeal to you as well.

I’ve already covered some of the art exhibits I particularly enjoyed in the regions in The Art of SL14B, so consider this a companion article to that piece 🙂 .
