Grignano Music & Pawn

Grignano must be going to seed. A pawnshop just opened at the back of The Brownstone East! I am amazed there could be enough business for such a place, but times are hard. I believe the proprietor is one Fuzzy Bunyip. Sounds like an alias to me!

Selections from My Personal Collection

The new show at my gallery is selected pieces from my personal collection. I have occasionally purchased the work of artists in Second Life, including some sculpture, and I want to share the beauty I have admired. The opening will be next Saturday, March 29, 2008, at 11AM.

Rooftop Camping

I took my house down this evening because I was tired of it,and I put up one of Osprey's gorgeous tents. Inside I have my simple black table, on which is my radio, and my TV/slide show, and a comfy armchair.

Makes me think of Matisse, that armchair.

I looked in my Retrospective book of Matissse and found a wonderful quotation I had never read before:

"When I started to paint, I felt transported into a kind of paradise .... In everyday life, I was usually bored and vexed by the things that people were always telling me I must do. Starting to paint, I felt gloriously free, quiet and alone." Ah yes.

My First Asian Avatar Attempt

I have already changed her ... as cute as she is, she needed something more. She still looks too much like ME, LOL.

One Update, One Return

Yesterday evening I found my gallery was on an island in a huge sea. I think this may be the update at work.

On the other hand, Osprey returned from her personal computer oblivion, and the carousing continued!

Ninjas at Play?

Headburro, Osprey and I are teamed up on Osprey's beautiful park by the bay. Too bad HBA had to drop that egg just as I took this pic! I am almost back to what I consider "normal", with my computer all loaded up. I knocked over my external hard drive, though, and it is shot; clicking and moaning, it gave me a few things back, but lots of SL images are lost forever. Oh well, let go of the past, they say!
