Where to Draw the Line...

I am nearing the end of a monster sized project, and I was thinking about the time it took to do. Around the first week in August, we finally got the okay to begin a 1,600 square foot color "I Love Lucy" mural.
We certainly could have finished it more quickly, but there was some rain and a few other distractions during the process. The distractions were a few minor projects done for some clients, portraits and an interesting local sidewalk chalk drawing festival. Last Saturday (a day when mural painting was ideal) I took a day off and created a 62 foot long forced perspective piece of Michelangelo's "David" on a section of sidewalk. From the reverse angle it looked like this...
...but when viewed from the other end it looked like...
It was a great weekend. Over the span of this mural, I have also worked on a ton of freelance projects, and I started to wonder "How much work is too much?" I guess for everyone, the answer may be different, but I for one am excited to wake up every morning, knowing I have a ridiculous amount of things to accomplish. As a busy artist, I think the best place to draw the line, is where ever the next one goes.

I love watching the Lucy mural fill out on facebook, Gary. And the sidewalk drawing is cool too. The wrong angle view looks like a mutated killer whale!
