A Year of Change 2019

Second Life Changes:

I purchased more land for more prims for an expanded gallery. Some of you might recognize this large warehouse gallery space. It is the same building I had back in 2014. I also purchased the same Spanish colonial house from back when I was aztec Fenstalker. Then there is the upgrade of my avatar. New mesh boby and mesh head, which meant I had to spend money purchasing new clothing. As everyone knows, once you begin changing things there is no stopping!

Another change is the addition of a fully equipped photo and film studio. Located high above the Gallery, it is a place I work on publishing books and doing private photoshoots for people wishing to upgrade their profile.

So now! Gallery No. 8 is in the book publishing business. I began with the release of the gallery’s first book, a large picture book about the build at Burning Man2: Metamorphoses 2019. Yes, the theme was – change, very appropriate for what has been happening in my new life here in Costa Rica! Do you have an idea for a book in SL? Contact me for details on how you can make that a reality!

Make sure and visit the new gallery and bookstore which officially opens Saturday, November 23rd, 2019, at 12:00 pm SLT

OpenSim: Remodeled and added more art to Gallery No. 8. I installed beacons to connect the regions all to the Open Sim. I now get much more traffic to the regions in Kitely by way of the OS grid. The Gallery is small, featuring only the most recent artwork. Below the gallery at sea level is a beach and house to explore – also kilometers of open water!
