Lagniappe In New Orleans Art at The Pearl

Saoirse reviews The Pearl Gallery in the New Orleans sim:

2-Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 5.44.21 PM

I was taking in the sites of the fabulously designed virtual New Orleans riding the St. Charles streetcar, smartly named “Desire”, when I came upon The Pearl gallery.


This gallery is New Orleans style tall ceilings and welcoming atmosphere, croissants and coffee at the door.  The pieces inside captured my attention with their miscellany of expressions.  At first glance, the personal aspect of these pieces may be missed amid the colors and distinct variations of images.  I mention this first so you will take the moment to look deeply into these images after you see them the first time.  “Gossamer Soul” has a texture of rough sandstone which made me recall the aspects of brutalist architecture.  This was a movement in architecture from the 1950s and 1970s, the term “brutal” derived from the French béton brut, or “raw concrete” a word coined by Le Corbusier when asked about his material.  In Gossamer Soul the roughness of the concrete is in hues of sands, yellows and browns.  In SL art it is fascinating to see how artists mix the tactile feeling of an image with the 2D aspects.  You can almost hear the sounds of scraping as the concrete element is added and smoothed into the image.  This style is present also in a piece titled “Coastal Monument in Red”, scratches from the tools of a cement layer.  In “Coastal” I also had the feeling of a heated aspect to the cracks.

The artist moves from the tactile of the New Brutalism to vibrant colors in “Little Dreams”.  There are a couple of main images, the artist, a famous castle, and there are underlying images as well.  I will not reveal them here, only to write they give us an insight to the personal part of the artist.  The images on this piece have an almost holographic aspect to them, hinting at transparency but not giving way to it.  Swirling colors entertain the eye with this piece.

The artist has also given us a couple of pieces that have a look of watercolor paints in the color strokes.  “God Rest” is one of those pieces with a watercolor aspect.  I have a feeling that the artist, Shakita Adored, will be adding more pieces as she completes them.  There is a lot of diversity and many varying expressions.  To me this means that she is only getting started on what she can develop from her expressions.  The Pearl is definitely a little something extra [Lagniappe] for those who visit.  Artfully yours, Saoirse Heart



It takes all kinds to build a community in Second Life: Basilique hits 2000 member milestone

This post originated @ Windlight Magazine.


Basilique is a community that Windlight Magazine will be covering soon online, check it out and congrats to the sim owner, Canary Beck for this milestone!

InnocentlyWicked Resident, a 4-week old avatar who describes herself as: “young and I just want to have fun’, surely didn’t imagine she’d be winning Caitlin Tobias’s inventory of poses from her store Pose O’Clock, when she accepted our invitation as Basilique’s 2000th member.

2000 members might not sound like much in comparison to some in world groups out there. Compared to groups solely based on regions however, 2000 is a respectable number and it’s taken years to get to this point. Basilique opened December 26th, 2012 (there’s even a street named after that date, leading up to the Basilique Playhouse – see image below). Back then we had about 30 charter members (friends, mainly) who we personally invited. At first, I experimented with charging a join fee (starting at L$ 1000). Lowering the join fee to L$ 350 made no difference to sign ups. Eliminating the join fee also made no difference. The join fee was never the problem.

Creating A Hand Painted Effect In Your Photographs

This post originated @ Windlight Magazine.


DWPhotoworks demonstrates how to create a hand painted effect in your photographs:

Originally posted on DWPhotoworks Blog:

I have always had a fascination for some of those old photographs that had been hand colored or toned to create a soft almost watercolor effect. These were mostly done with black and white images and almost always had that soft pleasing look to them.
I had tried many times to create a soft watercolor look to a few of my images. I have seen some wonderful renditions of others work that mimicked that look very well and envied the artists efforts. In this article I will share my latest technique which isn’t really a true watercolor effect, but presents a sort of modern art pencil and watercolor sketch.

“Pretty In Pink”

After selecting your image, and opening it in your version of Photoshop, create a duplicate layer as always. The tool that is used for this technique is the popular plug-in from Topaz Labs ( ) called Simplify.

Someone once told us that you can’t do art and gacha together…that was like showing a red rag to a bull! Last year MadPea produced it’s first Art Gacha Festival and it was a huge success for everyone concerned.

So much so that we’re doing it all over again this year.

The festival starts on the 14th August and there are still spaces for artists to take a machine to sell their works. Here’s some more info directly from the Pea’s mouth:


Each Artist can rent up to two gacha machines, which we will provide.  The machines have three levels: common, rare, and ultra rare. You must provide at least one rare item per machine.

Your submissions must be original artworks, quality, and not be sold in any of your in-world shops or museums.

It will be appreciated, if they were unique, and never before seen pieces of Art…

The Aloha Fair, The Lexi Project, Latreia, Sneak Peek, WoW Skins Group Gift, and More!

This post originated @ Welcome to Aurora Town Zindra.

Picture the Glorious Sun above, you on a Lounge Chair, Cocktail in Hand, Palm Trees swaying softly in the distance, and the smell of the Ocean, sounds really nice huh!? Reminds me of Hawaii! You know what else reminds me of Hawaii?  The 2015 Aloha Fair!  The Aloha Fair is one of the places Lilliana went Shopping Today!  Lilliana is also showing more from the current Sneak Peek Round and is wearing WoW Skins July VIP Group Gift.

There’s a Special Event going on right now, not sure if you all have heard, but one of our fellow Residents needs your Help!  Lexi Zelin Owner of Angel Red Couture was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is in need of help to pay her Medical Bills and Expenses as she is not able to work in RL. Lexi is only 28 years old, is a Mom to a little Girl, plus plays a big role in Second Life by creating High Quality, Full Perm, Mesh Apparel, which opens doors for many SL Residents to have the freedom of starting their own businesses.  The Lexi Project Event opened yesterday, July 26th and runs for at least a week. Believe it or not, I have found lots of information on Lexi Project, but not when the Event ends.  Over 300 SL Designers have donated at least 1 Design and will donate all their money made at The Lexi Project Event to help Lexi.  So here is another chance to buy yourself something nice and also help a fellow Resident in need!

Lilliana’s Post begins with her lovely little Mini, it’s Lushish Catz Heidi Mesh Dress. Lushish Catz Heidi Dress includes a HUD with 9 Colors and is an Exclusive for The Aloha Fair 2015.  Since Lilliana has a few Designs from The Aloha Fair, I am grouping them together right here.  Next Aloha Fair Exclusive is Lilliana Shoes.  I really, really like these, they are super cute!  The Shoes are Latreia’s Kaiya, the Pinks with a 5 Floral Texture HUD.  Kaiya are for SLink High Feet and are my second Exclusive from The Aloha Fair!

I got two more Aloha Fair Exclusives for you Today, next up Lilliana’s Hair it’s Tukinowaguma Cindy the  HUD 2 Fat Pack.  I swear it looks like Lilliana’s Hair is blowing in that tropic breeze I talked.  My Last Exclusive for The Aloha Fair Today is the Nail Polish, it’s Kitty’s Claws: Florals SLink Polish HUD, 10 different Flora Designs in Kitty Claws HUD!

Now for what I purchased for Lilli from The Lexi Project.  I picked up SHEY’s Maldiv Lexi Handbag.  SHEY’s Maldiv Lexi Handbag comes with two versions of the Bag an arm Hold and Relax Hold as Lilli is holding below, this is one of SHEY’s Exclusive’s for The Lexi Project.  If you are a memeber of WoW Skins VIPs then hurry up and pick up July’s VIP Group Gift, Lilli is wearing Stella in the Golden Skin Tone, which is WoW Skins  July 2015 VIP Group Gift.  I am loving on the Skin BTW, very sultry looking! Lilli has been wearing AVELINE’s Mesh Eyes Natural Hazel for the, last few Posts. The Hazel Eyes are an  Exclusive Free Gift on MarketPlace.
