I hope everyone had a good holiday and a happy new year! 2013 went by quickly didn’t it?
I tried coming up with a resolution for 2014, but after thinking about it I came up with a whole list! Where to begin?
- To flourish and to prosper
- To make greater accomplishments in my career
- To meet more of my art fans in person
- To spread more of my artwork
- To laugh more
- To continue to forgive
- To spend more time with those I love
- To spend less time worrying
- To build a new body of work that speaks to more people
- To spread aesthetics and empowerment
What are some of your resolutions? Comment to this post. I would love to hear them!
Don’t you find that we quickly forget about our resolutions as the weeks pass? It’s challenging to stick to our goals when we can’t even remember what they are! I am aiming to achieve my “to spread more of my artwork” resolution. To do that, I have entered a number of fairs during the upcoming few months!
If you have ‘Liked’ my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AnastasiaAlexandrinArtist) then you have probably been wondering where I will be from late January until early April. As followers of my blog, I’m letting you in on it FIRST!
My clues have been that it’s a state in the United States, it’s known to have the highest lightning strikes per capita, there is a law that makes it illegal to wear a strapless gown in public if you are a man, and the Northern Mockingbird is its state bird. Have you looked it up and figured it out? I think we need a drum-roll here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t925JwYXhVA
If you guessed Florida, then YOU ARE A WINNER!! (Sorry, I don’t have a prize for you but I can give you a, “Congrats!”)
Just over Christmas, I was in Maine. My boyfriend and I were taking a trip just to get away. He’s really into snowboarding, and from the pictures it seems I’m really into looking like I can snowboard!
(I saw this tree on the drive there and fell in love! It looks like it’s dancing. Isn’t it remarkable?)
Now I am back in Philadelphia and doing crazy prep work for all of the fairs! I’m still waiting to hear back from a few of them, but I am excited about the ones I have been accepted into so far. If you will be in Florida, make sure to stop by! A list of the fairs I’m participating can be found below. More updates and details to come!
- 2/15-16 Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival
- 2/22-23 North Florida Fine Art Festival
- 3/15-16 Key Biscayne Art Festival

- 3/29-30 Altamonte Spring Art & Music Festival

Can’t make it to any of these fairs but are interested in purchasing a print/original? Please feel free to message me over my Facebook page or email me (email address can be found in the ‘Contact’ tab).
As an artist, sometimes festivals and fairs can make you seem unprofessional or as if you only do art for a hobby. I say, if it gets my work out there and I get to meet my fans face to face, it’s “fair” game!
