We have had a steady flow of visitors since the opening, made a lot of new friends and contacts, and the artwork is finding new homes all over SL - some of these we've visited, and it's so exciting to see:)
One place I know I will visit again and again is 'Genevieve'- a really special place in the making - with a 'real SL heaven' and a Mermaid Grotto being decorated with my paintings.

Apple Trees are Thriving:))


We're also happy to announce that our Magical Apple Trees are living happy lives all over the place - after the initial concern expressed by many of you for the ones you received as invitation reminders -
(those were actually meant to die...after having reminded you:))

Every Painter's Dream

The 'SmartFrame' - also termed MDF in one of it's 'guises' - see further down the page -
has received acclaim; it is a Fantastic 'frame'/'tool'/medium - whatever you want to call it; 'Every painter's dream' as far as I am concerned:)

Art Sanctuary Isle

It's official: The Art Sanctuary will be moving - to an island;
Not just yet, but soon! An exciting Stage 2 in the evolution of the Art Sanctuary!

Living at the Art Sanctuary?



Have you ever considered living inside a Sun Flower?
Well, now you can!
For those who may remember the painting 'Waterway' (see enclosed photo) - this is now in the process of becoming an apartment building! Yes, you read right. No, not a big ugly one... a funny and strange one perhaps...and just tall enough to give a very nice view over the Sanctuary and the ocean surrounding the island!
We have started a list of those potentially interested, so if you fancy the idea, don't hesitate!
(IM any questions:))

The Art Sanctuary is officially open!












Thanks to all who made the opening of the Art Sanctuary such a special occasion!
To see all the people walking about in this 'painted universe' - meeting and talking with many of you - and to hear what your experience of it is - is just a little bit beyond description:), and fantastic!
This is stage 1; the Sanctuary is evolving - and we hope you come again and again, enjoy and bring friends.
Also want to thank you for the purchases - these enable the continuation of the vision.
Don't hesitate to IM any questions, requests, or comments - we love to hear from you!

---> 21:00 CET (12:00 SL): European opening; everyone is of course welcome;
---> 21:30 CET (12:30 SL): Start of the party;
---> 22:00 CET (13:00 SL): "Mood Dynamic Frame" and "Smart Frame" demo;

At arrival you will receive a free welcome gift.Streaming music is available during the opening and the party.Because avatars are always thirsty and hungry free drinks and foods will be present.During the whole event Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont will be available to answer answer any questions and help you.

The "Art Sanctuary" is the SL realization of the RL dreams of Raspirit Heron: Creating a virtual world where her paintings come alive in 3D animated paintings. The site shows her paintings transformed into castles, 3D objects, and animated paintings.
The "Castle of the Golden Apples" and the "Frog Castle" are RL paintings used to build the main exhibitions rooms.


The "Castle of the Golden Apples" is a unique exhibition concept using 8 levels, organized in 3 towers. An internal "Guided Visit" system guides you through the exhibition rooms. At each level you receive a notecard with information about the paintings, the sculptures and the painter.The upper floor gives you an amazing overview of the "Art Sanctuary" site. The "Skywalk", -- a Belgian invention to view the RL Grand Canyon" is the place to be for a nice chat about art or making new friends.
The large, more than 100 m long tree avenue, boarded with the "3D animated Apple trees, connects the "Castle of Golden Apples", "Meeting Place", the artist studios and the "Frog Castle".
The meeting place will be used as party place. A swing allows you to see the whole site from the sky, but don't tell us that it makes you mad or even crazy!
The studios of Raspirit Heron and WieBenik Beaumont can be visited and will give an overview of the "Art Sanctuary" products.
We hope you will explore and enjoy the experience of this evolving vision!
Welcome to the opening, June 10th!


Greetings,
Raspirit Heron and WieBenIk Beaumont
