Lots Turned out to Touch

I had my First Friday show in the KC Crossroads this past Friday. It was a terrific show. I had well over 1000 people come through. It was great to talk to everyone and watch visitors interact with my paintings. I asked them to touch and they did. I was hugged repeatedly and thanked throughout the night for the experience and opportunity to actually touch the pieces. One couple even bought their daughter a piece because she was allowed to touch it and was so excited about my work.

I was so busy all night I had to finally close the doors at 10:30 p.m. and turn people away. I ended the night with 4 original paintings sold and 3 prints. I am super happy with the turn out.

Now hopefully I can get back into the studio in the near future!



About Anastacia Drake - Fine Artist

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
