Syl Darcy A Fantastic Artist

I have known Syl for about a year and a half now, and in SL years that is a long time, during which we have had many good conversations. Mind you short visits due to us leading very busy lives, but we manage to stay in touch, thank goodness! She is a wonderful person, and it shows in all she does! She is an extreme artist in RL/SL and also very interested in assisting others in their endeavors in the music field. In the following will be her Bio and also some other interesting facts about this very inspiring lady!



Artist Bio

Syl Darcy AKA Sylvia Marks

I have painted all of my life in 2006 I opened a real life art gallery and studio in Rockledge, Florida. I feel very blessed to say I am host to 16 of the the most unique artist in my community. I paint live on the internet and that is what brought me into Second Life. I was painting live one day and one of my viewers from Belguim said to me have you been to Second Life:) I was like hahahaha what is Second Life?? He told me that he thought my art would be great here. I joined to market my art and did not relize I would meet so many wonderful ppl from all over the world. I love sharing my art with so many wonderful friends I have made here in sl.

STATEMENT

"Art is my passion, and it is also my voice. The images I create may tell a story, reflect a mood, or just simply come to be, but my work is always motivated by my own experiences, feelings, and the world around me. Although I refer to my painting style as realism, I strive to paint using direct strokes of the brush, incorporating refined color tones, implied brush strokes, and subtle textures.

I am fascinated with the effects of light and shadow. Many of my paintings incorporate strong contrasts, shadow effects, or mystical effects captured by applying thin layers of color, one over the other. I enjoy listening to people as they view my work. Most comment on the soft color tones, and the quiet feeling of peace created in my images. Although I sometimes work in oil, my medium of choice is definately acrylic.

I still enjoy accepting commissions, as there is always a wonderfully interesting story behind each portrait or painting. It's very rewarding when my work is given as a gift, and is well received by the recipient. Creating a piece that touches someone and makes them happy is what makes my work as an artist so rewarding.

Art is not merely a project, craft or trade. It is an understanding of all that we take in and how we perceive it. It is about the soul. All of us have different perceptions, but we are connected by the universal ability to view something and take it into our soul, to make it our own. Therefore, "seeing" is only a tool by which we each perceive our reality. Art is a language we can all speak and it knows not the bounds or restrictions of our lives. Art is uncontrolled and breathing. Separate from us, yet it has the ability to become a part of us forever. As an artist, I am an interpreter. This is my goal, to understand, perceive, and touch your soul. I capture the moments in time we cherish and give them back to you in dreams on canvas"

We want to exceed all others here in SL but also in doing so, provide you with the most support as possible. We also plan to go into real life and show record labels what we are doing and use that base to stand on and possibly partner in with a real life record label. So not only do you have a chance to sign with a record label here in SL but possibly with a real life record label. We are also looking into set ups for Bands and this will be up soon we hope.

This month (July) Syl was interviewed, and a story done by Nu Vibez Magazine! Try to get a copy, its a great article of Syl and her work bridging Rl and Sl and more. I have copies I can distribute if needed. You will find her article on page 106. Good going Syl!





On another note, if you need to take a break in any world, you can book an escape with Sly, she provides vacations of many sorts, and also can provide flowers!! Awesome Syl... when is my flight did you say?Book your next Vacation here! Or even become an agent!

Thank you again Syl!

Scoutlounge, House Music Community

Scoutlounge is not just a normal SL Club. It is a Community of users from all over the world, linked together by the passion for House Music.





In my travels and research always looking for interesting places, and due to some friends from the past and interesting profiles ( smiles ) I came across this place!

This is an Island of the musical Arts, Founder; Lexx Runo, its a community of live DJ,s go at it back to back for up to 18 hours a day, Seven days a week. These very talented musical artist come from all over the world, since 2007, this place has grown to over 100 DJ's playing, and believe me from what I have seen, there are always people there somewhere from around the world in RL coming to SL to enjoy anytime of the day or night!

I briefly had a chance talk to Anabella Wrigglesworth one of the managers, and to interview one of the Director of this awesome place, Cesare Drucker, and I asked him, Do a lot of these artists find this sort of thing helpful for them in Rl, he states " we try to help them, especially the big advantage is about networking, one european DJ can hear a japanese or US DJ and get new inspiration or also technical advice." He further states, "I know of a few DJs who have been learning how to DJ on SL, and they are very good, they could surely perform live in RL" He made it very clear a lot of team work and effort goes into this venture!! Thank you both for your time and I hope that everyone in SL can appreciate this awesome creative musical place in SL!

The following is a breakdown of the staff, many hard workers that make this an exciting and interesting place for the many very talented musical artists from around the world who DJ to the fullest...

Jon Haskell One of SL's best Realistic Sculptors

Jon Haskell has been a friend for at least two years in Second Life. In the time I have known him he has highly developed his passion.... Very Realistic Sculptures, and not just any, but many, and of wildlife, ranging from pets, baby animals, farm animals, birds, fish, exotic animals, and more. When you enter his store, you begin to feel the nature around you with sight and sounds! These animals and creature are low prim and not expensive and scripted for sound and or movement, so anyone can enjoy these lovely realistic animated creations in sl! It is a must see!!! Thank you Jon for the lovely animals I have gotten in the past, they have always made my surroundings more pleasant, pleasing to the eye and the senses!








Click here....Jon Haskell's Store a must see !

A Stab at Faces

Faces are not my forte, however they intrigue me, so in time hopefully will master them, meanwhile consider this my beginning......who knows where it may go! This is to represent a young girl in maybe the 1920's era, or close....smiles

Some news!

Painting the Town



I have been painting for years, and years ago entered many shows, sold quite a few pieces and then came children lol....and of course they come first, I wasn't making enough doing arts to support us sufficiently, so I focused on my children and did an occasional painting. I had active sons and their dad was in the Navy and out to sea a lot so it was out of the question to try to do shows back then...

Recently, since my three sons are adult now, ( the last barely) its my turn again to explore.. so beside the college gigs I have coming, I will be attending up coming shows and my first is next Saturday, have hooked up with other artists in the area, and we will all meet and exchange ideas as they come! Its a great community of people and I feel right at home!

Just thought I would share that bit of information with you, as many of you follow some of my art doings! All my work will be sold as copies, my originals are safely tucked away! I have a few friends in other parts of the country that are willing also to spread my work, but first getting the home town connection solid!

Stay in touch, Butterfly

Underwater Scene

Been enjoying RL a bit so haven't been writing here lately, was to return sooner but got a lot done! I am presently working on setting up with the Jacksonville Coalition for the Visual Arts, they want me to give some Seminars on my style of Art! I will also be presenting some of my work at the Art Walk down town Jacksonville. Still writing and enjoying doing so, the chapters are taking longer due to so many other things in the works!! Will show you a work I just completed, or at least I think I have, ( feel like they always could use more of something)!! Again I will show the progression of the piece, this piece is from an acrylic painting I have done a few years ago in RL. Was told that it couldn't be done, to produce a from scratch painting in a pc program to look like a painting in such as acrylics etc, well here it is! Exactly why I have been given the opportunity to Lecture and teach this, at our local college. No program devices, have been used only the paint color palette, and mouse! Hugs to all, Butterfly
