When you relax

As promised I have been gentle with myself. I’ve slept when I needed to and haven’t been very active due to not feeling 100% and the cold. Luckily I am starting to feel a lot better. Allowing the downtime of my mind, however, didn’t slow things down. It’s been kind of fun to watch how when I stop forcing the flow, the flow is still there pointing me in the right direction.

I have put all plan making aside and just decided to paint for a bit. I am currently working on a commission piece I hope to finish in the next week. I also have lots of ideas for new pieces. I began to construct an office/studio space in my basement with lots of light and lots of room for creativity. I currently have my studio outside of my home too, but it’s nice to just go downstairs and paIMG_7814int when my son is sleeping.

As a result of just relaxing, I was approached three times this week with hanging shows. All very exciting opportunities and I’ll be posting more about them in the very near future. There are a lot of things sizzling and I will announce them as they solidify. Turns out, just relaxing and taking care of myself first is also working for my art business. I should keep doing that.


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.
