  1. as ever, thank you Victoria for showing sensitivity and respect during this time of duress. i’m so frustrated looking at social media that carries on as though nothing of consequence is happening. much like it’s been for too many, for too long.

    • thank you, yvonne. i just couldn’t bring myself to post pretty pictures today. i don’t want to stop doing what is essentially my job — to distract and hopefully uplift you, but i am sad, drained and in grief with my black friends and community. i’ll be back, but not today. stay safe. xoxo

  2. Thank you Victoria.
    I have your San Francisco artbook., so, i am your fan. You give to us so much joy and resources with lots of beauty in between. You will enjoy Lanzarote Island if your hostess is a painter like me.. Keep in Beauty. You are great!.

  3. Yes I understand why you would want a break and I think that that is an excellent idea. I don’t live in the US but if I did I would be stressed out from my eyeballs to my toes. This is your country and what is happening is heartbreaking.
    There is just so much going on on SO many levels. ❤️
    Shortly before things here locked down my husband received a picture of his grandfather with his new born son (my father in law). Apart from it being the most beautiful expression of the love of a father for his child I had ever seen, I was surprised to see that he (neither of us have ever met him) was quite a dark skinned man (I did know he was Indonesian).
    When I was thinking about what happened with George Floyd I realized that my husbands grandfather could have found himself standing in his shoes and that also breaks my heart.

  4. This was a nice reminder to close my eyes and take a deep breath. Thank you. Hope you are doing well and if you would like some support or someone to talk to feel free to message me. This goes for anyone reading this!

  5. For what it’s worth, I think you are doing the right thing by taking time away from posting diversion content with so much going on in our country. What an unbelievable time we’re living through – drove through the Castro today and saw it all boarded up; reminded me of the devastation that neighborhood witnessed during the AIDS epidemic. I hope we can start building a better country soon – this one is getting bleaker by the moment.
