Gates of Melancholy


There is a new place named Gates of Melancholy that is a must see. People have flocked to this sim since it opened a few days ago and posted incredible pictures on Flickr. I finally headed over today and I now understand what all the hype is about! Based upon the life and work of the American realist painter Andrew Wyeth (1917 to 2009), the place offers great opportunities for photography. The creator of the sim, Shelly (Shelly70 Resident), notes that [t]his sim is created to emulate and elicit the feel in the watercolor paintings done by Andrew Wyeth. Melancholy, nostalgia, starkness and the crispness of his work. You will find spots throughout the sim where you can find recreations of some of his paintings and you can pose, take pictures and create your own art work as you like it. Head over and take a look and post your photos in the Gates of Melancholy Flickr group.
