Winter vacation

Well… I’m back. Learned very much, about SL, me and others. Now have 120 paintings, and some are even very nice.. Some people in SL do have them, in there houses. Now I’m thinking what to do next:

1) learn more
2) paint more
3) have fun ???

Still don’t know how to combine all these things, and live a “normal” live in RL too.. Perhaps that’s about learning too? 🙂

Dragon fun

I have almost 80 paintings now… Some on display in SL (3 gallerys, 2 more opening soon). I’ve had an interview, and it was published on internet by the Slobserver. Long hours. Hard work. So now, it’s time to have some fun. Too bad the music is not working.. Boxes are down again.. Hardware problem, I think. Will be buying better soon, perhaps. I talk to people… Meet new friends… And share ideas. And continue writing my book.. Perhaps when I’ve reached 100 paintings, it’s time to stop? Reflect on the results. Use the ideas in the book. Perhaps even finish the book?

Or just walk as a dragon in SL.. And learn how it is, to walk between humans (and all other sort of creatures, you’ll meet in SL). Might come to a turning point soon.. Who knows I’ll be off SL for a while? To relax in RL (is important too, but somethimes I seem to forget that). Of just to write on my book… We’ll see what will happen.

Reality

I promised myself to do a few things in SL:
learn,  explore, have fun, meet people, paint, play with creativity and don’t forget to have more fun.

And now all things move in some sort of direction…

head new skin

1) I have the skin I always wanted.. Not looking like some sort of strange water color painting any more.. More like real life person.. Even have the short beard I always have in RL. I saved all my money, but because a gallery wanted to use the photo of me.. It became urgent to do something.. It worked out very well…

2) I have the dragon AV… Now I can walk and fly like a real dragon.. Feels great, even learned a lot, just by getting used to this great new way of moving… Now I can add more pages to my book… The real feelings of being a dragon… Will make my book even more real…

3) I have had my first interview with nice person of the slobserver (http://www.slobserver.com). It’s in French, but the interview was in English (my French is improving, but not that fast lol). They used a few of my paintings, and it all looks very good. You don’t even have to understand French, to go and enjoy the interview (come and see for yourself)… And it works too… People read it and come and look at the paintings… I even get some new ideas.. So the book is growing and growing…

But the time… It costs a lot of time to paint and write a book.. Have to eat and sleep too… In RL.. So it’s good to try to keep the balance.. Is all about learning how to do that…

So yes.. I’m happy.. Wonder what will come next 🙂

Learning

SL still is fun. For me. I learn a lot about people, and it’s fun to walk in SL, meet people and visit nice places… But more important: I still am learning about me. And how I interact, why I do (or don’t do) things.

It started when I met an octopus. He (of She, pretending to be a He) made a great Av and was just floating in the air. Had a nice chat with him. Too bad I forget his name.

Then I met more and more fascinating people. Cats, butterflies, vampires, dragons… Beautifull (human-like) women and men too. And I learned it is nice. Meeting them, having fun in SL together.  No matter what they do in SL and what they look like.

Shocking… I learned things about me. How I look at people. I still can’t reduce the way an AV looks, in my mind. Perhaps I will never learn how?

Exploring SL is exploring ME… Great lessons to be learned. Same as RL. All things are lessons. A way to learn. Of these things… But more important. About you and who you are.

What’s the differance with RL? Perhaps the way people interact? Faster, more direct?

I’m interested what “voice” will be adding to the SL universe. Me, I still have to fix my boxes. I don’t even have sound yet… 🙂 …
