After much thought and concern, I took a moment away from SL and relaxed doing nothing, my conclusion… I have made the bittersweet choice of closing the Gallery at Misali. I am not leaving Second Life by no means but the gallery situation will become an emergence in the near future, NEW in many ways ... its time for Change.
I hate same ‘ness and dullish things. I love new everything once in a while. Just like my music, never old music always new.
My home now, the free-Linden-home stuck in the middle of a million matching buildings on a 512 lot with no free ground to plant a tree in ... it will force me to think WAAAAy out of the box. I don't like being confined so if you see smoke over the top of all those scary-linden-homes, Its just me rubbing two sticks together over a smoldering new idea.
Art and creativity make a human whole …if we are not makers of it then we are collectors/users of it. But it will ALWAYS be important
I want to thank all of the artists that supported CS Gallery. I want to say thank you to each one that brought their work to be shown. I have been inspired and moved by your talent.
I will continue to support SL art and all the artists that create from this crazy place we play in, for some its not just play but a passion to create in. I have been awe of all the AMAZING talent in all areas of second life's needs, since the first day I stepped my avatar foot in SL ... be it, building, artwork/textures, scripting and programs, all AMAZING.
I will still be doing my Full Perm Textures, as they seem to always be the in-between glue on everything I do.
The Cienega Soon Gallery Group will still be in tact as I plan to support and encourage new and seasoned artists around SL I will sponsor shows from time to time and would love to notify all the artists in my group to participate.
SEE YOU ALL EVERYWHERE ANYTIME cuz I cant just sit in that linden box for to many minutes, see you soon
Love N Kisses Cien Eighteen months of bliss, I will sadly miss my Beautiful Island home at Misali
Although Love and Lust have a close relation to each other One Deep One Shallow Both Burning Both Painful One from the Heart One from the Mind The emotion for each is something we never forget. Mind, Body, Heat, Safety, Desire, Jealousy, Secrets, Madness, Fear and Surrender, all Passion, PASSION that Rocks our very soul.
THIS, A Valentine for YOU! This display of emotion is worth seeing, seeing if in this group of artists, one has captured your LOVE or LUST

Evolution? Revolution! Yes! Make a Change ... GET out of that Box! Every Generation Needs A New Revolution. Create OUT of the Box! Get out of the Box and Create Change...Revolt!

After spending time studying some history of our government in the past .... in its beginning ... I found some things that are showing its head now ... again.
People mostly stay complacent, comfortable, unaware, oblivious .... blind to what is really happening around them. Like living in a box. Some boxes larger than others but all the same ... Box.
Some boxes are created out of lack of interest or in some cases a familiar knowing, not likely to venture out into the unknown. Strangely enough fear plays the biggest part of its perimeter.
An artist deals with: Medium Rules and Their Application, Censorship, Pier Pressure, Jealousy, All can be reasons they create in a box. Its like they are told these are your limits, you will suffer the humiliation of critics on a public level. Some artists bow to this pressure, even in the slightest way and backs down or quits.
The human need to create is in us all. Those of us whom choose to create unleash the magic from within and smile with our hearts inside out. Those, whom choose not to create, have tight eyebrows and criticize, thus is where Critics come from. WE don’t listen to them EVER! And you can quote me on this ~Cien “-) Yeah ... SL art is ART
"If we, citizens, do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and we end up believing in nothing and having worthless dreams." Yann Martel
In RL we have built ourselves some dangerous Boxes... I have collected some Quotes by Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, Former US Presidents. YOU MUST study the past to see where you stand now, YOU must Study to see where you’re headed. There are some shocking details to be found in our present situation, foretold by the past. GET OUT OF YOUR BOX ... BEGIN A REVOLUTION ... LOOK TO THE FUTURE AND PREPARE! Yes it is Allowed.. You can get out of your boxes. To stay enclosed in a fabricated safe box is ludicrous. CREATE OUT SIDE OF THAT BOX ... YOUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON FREEDOM! EVEN THE FREEDOM TO GROW YOUR OWN FOOD.... FIND OUT ... TALK WITH OTHERS. DONT LET LIES KEEP YOU TRAPPED IN A BOX.

I love vivid color and realism. Second life has revealed a whole new way to express my self, learning to use Photoshop can be a pain in the ass, it can also be rewarding. Now the lure of building virtually has got a hold on me. I just cant learn enough.
