Collecting Art

Lorac Farella IM’d me with the words I always like to hear from her—“Would you like to see some new skins?” Lorac, as has become apparent with this blog, is usually my skin maker of choice. I try other skins, but I always end up with Lorac’s because they “look like” Harper.

One of my fantasies in this other life was to be an art collector; as a result I have an extensive collection of art on prims, but honestly, some of the best art I own comes in the form of fashion, skins, hair, etc. Lorac’s are, of my collection, some of the best of the best. They provide me the most aesthetic and personal enjoyment.

Her new “Life” line has the hallmarks of a Lorac skin—the detailed and almost poignant eyes, the luscious drawn lips, the finely defined collarbones, the beautifully arched eyebrows (and I have to say, with skins, it’s *always* about the eyebrows for me), the deliciously drawn sensuous body. A woman in Lorac’s skin is a woman—not a girl, not a Barbie doll, not an anime cartoon. She is a full and entire woman.

Collecting Art

Unlike many bloggers, I choose not to do the omnibus approach to showing the skins—you can see that in the store. I chose one to wear, and I wore paeoti Pomeray’s sexy and fun lingerie with it so you can see the approach of two different artists—where Lorac is almost painterly, paeoti’s textures are smoother and more bright and contrasted. Yet the two look good together.

Then I top it all with another artist’s work—Sky Everett’s hair. I have said before Sky’s hair is fantasy hair—piled-high, full, extravagant and luxurious, her hair is the dream of beautiful women across the grid. One could never say Sky is parsimonious with her textures or prims—or her talents.
