Eiffelicious : Capricious Talent

1-top.jpg

“Lost inside… Adorable illusion and I cannot hide”    from Blonde’s  ‘Heart of Glass’

The first time I went to visit LEA 7 Eiffelicious , my sound was muted when I landed. I noticed that flying was permitted so I flew to the Tip Top of the Eiffel tower. Standing there I panned around to soak in some of the grandeur of this Eiffelicious place. The snow flakes gently falling and the purple hues of the sky is a calming respite.   It is hard to believe that this tower [irl] was built only as a temporary fixture in Paris 1889. Here a delectable Eiffelicious tower resides in a huge snow globe. This entire installation was built by one person, artist and fashionista Regi Yifu.

Patron Banyan House Edition

“If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it.  This is the most basic kind of peace work.”   That Hanh [Vietnamese Buddhist Monk]

Close your eyes and imagine a private place, away from all the stress and the mundane that can be in the every day routine. Imagine that place rests nestled around a lush Banyan tree and built by an expert in design and design comfort details. If you have visited Eliza Wierwight’s Patron house and Keiki House you have a taste of her designs. You cannot walk around her grounds and homes without realizing her creations are made of love. You can feel her considerations and thoughts in all aspects, from the smallest detail to the overall feelings and views. Even the music stream is perfectly fitted for the experience. [in footnotes]

Bona’s Visual Jazz in Fine Art

3-Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 6.17.48 PM.jpg

Located on a corner lot facing Nat’s Jazz Club on the Detroit City SIM, is Bona’s Visual Jazz in Fine Art.  This gallery contains a plethora of work that is a spiritual combination of music and digital art.  In reading the notes on the artist, TaO Bona, I learn he was raised by two artists and he says that ‘balance and contrast’ escape him.  Contrary to what he tells visitors, his balance and contrast are spectacular and must be intuitive.  He also uses well thought out names that reveal his story telling desire with each image.

COMA : I Can’t Speak

Saoirise reviews the new exhibition, “COMA: I Can’t Speak:”

“I heard the wheels…loud…who was he…? I didn’t see a face and…I didn’t want to die in the dark rain…I froze…that’s how it goes”                                   GlitterPrincess Destiny

Walking into COMA, I was thrilled that our artist provided a picture of the suggested Firestorm settings. It is so much easier to make sure you have them set when you can see the screens. I am fortunate enough to be able to set my settings exactly as recommended. I visited the exhibit with both my standard graphics settings and the suggested ones. I also viewed the images with the audio of the artist and without it.

Winter Wonderful ~ Spotlight Artist

 

showcase-3_0011

Today is the last day of the Windlight Winter Art Show and Winter Showcase! Saoirise has a great review of this awesome event:

‘O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?’  Percy Bysshe Shelley

There is an advantage for me to being relatively new on the sl art scene, I don’t always recognize the names of artists who have been talented and famous in world. Such was the case when I first walked into the exhibit I am going to spot light today from the Windlight Magazine’s Wintershow Exhibition 2015.
