I will be bringing these paintings into Second Life very soon!! Check out my newest paintings from the “Once upon a time series.” Inspired by street art, urban city lights, decay and the idea of ripping away layer upon layer … Continue reading
Ok so you know how in the last post I said I was going to start posting every day???
Well, ummm yea. That worked. I actually forgot…LOL You can blame it on Grimm, or Sherlock, or Game of Thrones… or painting. Yes, yes, that’s it. Everything but me…LOL
Oh well. So This isn’t going to be a 365 day project. Life goes on.
It’s funny. A friend on Facebook posted a great quote today. It fits perfect, don’t you think? “Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!”

A couple thoughts of my studio… Where the magic happens. Well some of the time 🙂
So now what?
I finished the 1000+ Avatars project and my mixed reality installation of “And one man in his time plays many parts.” Now what? It is the end of an era of sorts. I have also decided to move out of my home in Second Life too. As much as I love my home and I love the community I live in, I just can’t afford it right now. I feel this is a good time for change. I am actually excited about the freedom I will have of being a hobo. As I was recently reminded, do you know what hobo means? “Homeward Bound.” Although I am letting go of my home in Second Life, I think this will help me find my center, my home within myself. It is a great thing.
I started painting again. I haven’t really painted much in a couple years. I missed it. I needed it.
I have been thinking of doing the 365 days of blog posts thingy. I have some friends who are doing it and I love reading their blogs. Their goings on, etc. Of course I did this with the Gracie Kendal Project 3 years ago. I only got to 159 days though. Although I learned so much about myself at the time… I still have a way to go. I am in a much better place in my life, but still struggling with my eating disorder and self confidence.
So if I start the 365 days of posts thingy, today is day 1. I think this will be good for me actually. It will be cathartic. It will be my sketchbook/journal/notebook. Especially for The Gracie Kendal Project which is now called “Gracie and the Real Girl.” This is still an ongoing project that will continue as long as is needed.
I have ideas for new mixed reality performances which I will be working on implementing so that is exciting. For now let’s see where this goes. Where it continues. Where the next path takes me. See you along the way!!
