Finishing this mask for the Quirks show was a much needed breath of fresh air.
I started it way back in 2005 (!!!) when I had a little time available to experiment with a couple of mask ideas, but since then I had been too busy or stuck in the same routine to complete it. However, being invited to join a last minute mask show this October was the perfect excuse to dust the bits off and see what I could do with them.
Anyhow, I am quite dizzy with excitement about what this transition means. I have spent too long throwing myself at the mercy of other people's demands. It is time to do art for myself for awhile.
I hope you will enjoy the results.
