The Return of the Queen' - by Lady Sylvie Etoile (loyal subject)

'Returned across the mighty waves
she surveys her realm
A mighty land
Surrounded by sea girt caves
And ocean's strand
Queen Llola has returned, bow down!
.... and hence a hush filled all the town

In Second Life it all grew still
Strife did cease
And no one was ill
And so the land was happy
Yet once more
Whence did her praises ring
From shore to shore

Thus did they come to sing
In far off times
Of Llola and her visit to
That other land
Where King Sven lives
With his band
Of goodly folk
Ruling England

Tegan Jenvieve's Halloween exhibit "Dark Beauty" at The OZLAND Art Gallery

Tegan Jenvieve's Halloween exhibit "Dark Beauty" examines the intense contrasts and images on one moonlit Halloween night. All the images in Black and White harken back to the days when textures and composition alone, not special effects, could transport you to far off places and evoke deep thoughts.

On a lonely walk through a dark forest at midnight in SL, who knows what you will encounter......and if you make it home at all!  Don't forget to look  for the glowing gifts, these spooky objects want to come home and haunt your  house too. See the exhibit at the OZLAND Art Gallery

Do you like writing? Then take at look at  OZLANDISH Writings, where we use one of the pictures as an inspiration.

Van Caerndow's Western Paintings on Glass at the OZLAND Art Gallery - August 2010

"I paint on glass as a window to the worlds in my imagination"

Van Caerndow has developed a style of painting on glass (mostly miniatures) using a French water based craft paint called Pebeo, which is designed for glass and ceramics. After painting is done he bakes the glass for 20 minutes at 325 degrees. From these finished works he signs, and numbers Giclee prints at up to 400% of the actual size.

Jadyn Firehawk Photography - Christmas in July Exhibit at the OZLAND Art Gallery

Jadyn Firehawk is a professional geographer & amateur photographer. Born in the Philippines she now lives in Texas.

She believes the mind behind the camera is more important then the quality of the camera. Her photos are taken with a Canon PowerShot point-n-shoot digital camera. She's tried a better camera but keeps reverting to her trusty point-n-shoot. She's concluded it's better to have a small camera in her purse at all times, than a fancy camera at home when she needs to capture a spontaneous shot the moment it catches her eye.
