Frenemies

Hello Lovelies:

As I wrote about in my last blog, the AKC Museum of the Dog opened its last group show here in St. Louis. I am sad that it is leaving, but I was proud to have my work displayed there.

How is this related to Steampunk you might ask?

My two pieces on the show, Strax and Mercy are “Frenemies” in a new series I’m working on for children. More details to be announced soon. In the meantime, here’s a sample of the show:

And video here:

The show runs through early fall, so visit if you can before the Museum leaves town.

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

Time Passages

Hello Lovelies:

Another crazy busy week has passed. Last week was the opening for the last group show at the Dog Museum

and my first time at the St. Louis Ball Jointed Doll convention:

I will have a lot more on those in later blogs, but the way in that time is passing so quickly blows me away.

A year ago today, my sister passed away after a long battle with MS. So much has filled this last year. I lost my precious Bobalou last summer too.

But as they say, you can’t start something new without letting go of the old. Since those painful days ended, I started a new day job, had several successful shows, I started writing for Steampunk Journal, and have so much new reading material coming out in the next year and a half that I often wish for extra hands and another brain to handle the volume.

Those deaths have taught me to appreciate what I have and remind myself that anything is possible.

Kate Church, my heroine from the Society Series, goes through major life changes in only nine months. She leaves the ghost town of Iris as a gunslinger in order to return to St. Louis as a spy in training and a proper lady. Time changes us all.

Today I am grateful for the people that come to my shows and buy my art. Many, many thanks! More to come as always, watch this space….

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

A Thoughtful Easter/Passover

Dear Lovelies:

This is NOT an April Fool’s joke…I sometimes tackle serious issues on my blog. Today is one, so if you’re sensitive, please skip this one.

There has been a bad smell on my floor the last few days. This morning the police arrived. And as I suspected, one of my neighbors had passed.

Please on this Easter Sunday/Passover weekend…

Please lift up in prayer, positivity, love, kindness, or what ever goodness/faith you believe in to anyone who is suffering. You never know what your neighbors are going through. Offer them help, even a smile can make someone’s day better.

Last night the odor was one of my neighbors who’d died a few days ago. He’d been a younger homeless vet that had suffered from PSTD, he’d finally recovered and found a home. Don’t know the circumstances of his death, but they removed his body this morning. His name was John, and he only lived here a few months. But he had an infectious kind smile.

My older sister died on Easter last year, so today’s been kind of rough. Again, it’s been a very reflective holiday for me.

Please be kind to one another, it’s that simple.

I wish you peace.

Thank you for reading,

Victoria
