Artistic Endevors of the slightly over ambitious

I know I always have an iron or two in the fire. I'm in an odd place right now. My fulfillment is stemming largely from my artwork, but it isn't paying the bills.

But right now, it doesn't matter. I need this. It sounds odd, even irresponsible- but more than anything now I need to practice my art and support my community through it.

To those ends, I have two huge projects going on- on top of my already busy life.

SummerStar is sixteen weeks away. Procession is about six weeks away.

I usually contribute in one small way or another, but this year is a lot different.

For SummerStar I am decorating about thirty masks.
Moon
Sun
Stars
I want to build a "tree" mask using a small sapling so I can expose the roots and then attach branches to it.
I want to do a Reiki Mask
Satyr
Dragon
Dragon Fly
Classical Drama masks combined into one
Green Man
Something that depicts fate, fortune and luck
Triple Goddess
Horned God
Ravens
Crystals
Death
The Taijitu
Buddha
Tree of life
Something inspired by the indigenous peoples of the area
Knotwork
Grapes and vines motif
Jester
The Seasons
Earth
Air
Fire
Water
A crone
A sage
A mother
A father.

All that being said, I'm really excited. If I do about two masks a week, I'll be doing great! <3
My work with the Procession will be a lot different. Mostly cleaning up after people, but I am hoping I will eventually have time to work on my own art at the Studio.
