RETURN TO MILLY SHARPLE'S SECOND LIFE 'CREATIONS'

Creations - Milly Sharple
Barely a month ago I blogged the good news that artist Milly Sharple had returned to Second Life  in response to the many messages of support  she had received since announcing her retirement from  virtual art and had opened a new Gallery, 'Creations' at Cynefin  with over 50 works on display.

 I had imagined with such a prodigious outpouring of creativity there would be little more news from Milly for a while, but last week I received a message from Milly that she had been busy and as a result  needed to add a further floor to her gallery!

So today with my curiosity raised by Milly's note I returned  to Cynefin which according to the place profile is " A Welsh word for a place where a being feels it ought to live. It is where nature around you feels right and welcoming." 
Milly is perhaps most well known for her beautiful and very striking fractal art however the new gallery shows a change in emphasise which the artist acknowledged stating "the reason I called the Gallery 'Creations' is that the art is mixed media - combinations of photography, fractals and various other media and filters.

As Milly had indicated, a completely new floor has been added to the gallery almost doubling the number of pictures on display; and what works they are; stunning is the best one word description that comes to mind.  Rich and vibrant colours,  butterflies, birds and flowers, woodland scenes and more! I have tried to capture  the feel of the art in my photographs but they have to be seen in the gallery to be fully appreciated. Milly has made one of her works available free for collection from the gallery; however there is a limited supply so I would suggest a visit sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

Should you wish to own one of these magnificent works in real life they can be purchased online.
I am so pleased that Milly seems to have rekindled her enthusiasm for Second Life and look forward to seeing more from her in the coming months.
