  Just a short little post - work and such - 10 hour shifts for awhile here to accommodate some doctors appointments and a class I will be teaching with CLL.....nice to have the extra day off but I will be going back to 8 hrs.shifts once the class is done - cant seem to work in a walk with the longer shift....
  A last couple Christmas cards for you - simple with pretty cardstock and stickers.

Abit squirrelly......

   Well yesterday was a very low energy day - I had planned to get some housework done and head over to the studio for awhile but..... I did do some cleaning, and wrapped Christmas presents, planted 2 plants, did laundry and later last night while watching "The sound of music" I addressed all my Christmas cards.
  Today sometime I need to write up a Christmas letter so I can get my cards out tomorrow....
  Well while I was putzin around yesterday I noticed this squirrell in the tree outside my bedroom window and he hung around long enough for a few pictures through the window...
  Not too much new with me - spending more time in the studio painting and carving and less in the craft room doing crafty stuff.
  Jack came home Friday but has been out with friends most of the weekend, Paula gets home tomorrow, and I work....
  I have one painting selected for the Mattie Kelly Southeastern Regional art show for Janurary and have 2 others I plan to enter....gotta get that done soon....
  Well better get a move on and get off to work....
           Have a great Monday!!!

Canyon lands 2

  Another Monday morning and so far so good - got out for an early walk and it wasn't raining!!
  I finished off this painting this weekend over at my studio. It is 12 inches wide and 24 inches tall.
  I started  by building up many layer of wax - 10 colors, 2/3 layers of each color. Then I carved out the rivers - between the 2 it took me about 18 to 20 hours.
  The last step is adding the texture on top in the spaces between the rivers - another 7 hours or so work.
   I am really liking how these are turning out - so organic and you can see all the layers of color in the walls of the river canyons...so cool!!!
  I have started showing my paintings on a web site called 'Vangoart' and have 6 paintings up on my page there now and a couple more pending review. It is completely a fine art site (as of yet they don't even take photo art). If you want to check it out the web site = www.vangoart.com and do a search for my name 'Tera Fujan'
  All for this am - Take Care
