Blogging as Art

Blogging as Art

I have to admit that Second Life has brought me numerous surprises, pleasant and some not so pleasant, but I have to admit that the biggest surprise in the almost 6 years I’ve been a resident here happened a few weeks ago when I opened flickr for one of my regular checks to see what’s going on! I don’t get much flickr mail, so it’s the first thing I go to when I see there’s a message, and what do I find there, you ask? I found a very friendly message from Wintergeist, the owner/curator of Club LA Gallery inviting me to consider exhibiting my work at the gallery. I sat back in my chair and thought this has got to be a mistake, never in my wildest dreams did I even consider what I do art, I’m a blogger! I see sooooo many wonderful pictures from the incredible bloggers of Second Life and I know there is art in blogging, but in other peoples shots……not mine! I thought maybe she was looking for a different TinLiz Winterstorm, but no, it was me she wanted to contact! Well, I answered the flickr mail right away, asking if she’s sure, because I just can’t believe this. The opening of the exhibit is nearing, I’ve been working to get it together and I’ve found choosing the photos the most difficult part, I still have time to make substitutions, and I’m sure I’ll question my choices well past the start of the exhibit, so I hope I pick ones that everyone feels worthy of being there. I do have favourites that are an easy choice for me, but some of the others are my most faved on flickr. If I only went on flickr faves all the photos would be of my butt! 😛 In this shot you get an idea of what you’ll find at Club LA Gallery when the exhibit open. The official opening will be on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 12-2 PM SLT, dress is casual so feel free to drop in and say Hi. I hope someone shows up, I’ve never worked a room before! 😀

The first thing you’ll notice about this shot is of course, my butt!! Whenever LEGAL INSANITY has a new release I go through my poses to find good butt shot poses because I know when it’s leggings, the focus is the butt! So with the release of the ‘Lana Leggings’ which are available at the January round of District 20. They leggings come in 15 colours and include a straight leg version and one for under boots, which is so handy. They’re Maitreya mesh body exclusive and there’s a belt Add-On HUD that you can purchase separately, so you can customize it and be a ‘Limited Edition’ like me! District 20 runs until February 19.

The ‘Benny Side Rolled Top’ is from Blueberry.

You can just a bit of the back of the ‘Anime 05’ hair from DURA Hair.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the K. pose from the ‘Alive Again’ set of poses from Carniola Poses.

And as I’ve mentioned, I’m at the Club LA Gallery for this shot, working at setting up my exhibit.
