Christmas Day..
Well we actually opened most of our christmas presents last night. I got a small assortment of items, but some very cool art books on fantasy things and some Holbein Aeroflash paints I have wanted since I went to Dru Blair's art workshop. So I really really have no excuses now. I can also compare them to the Iwata - Media Com-art Paints. I still need to get some Badger White since that is what was used at the workshop.

Something else has to be done for the workshop. A friend is gonna work on getting me some muffin type fans so I can change the way I vent near where I paint, for when I feel well enough to paint. Maybe I can get it well enough I can paint inside the house, The wife doesn't like me being out in the workshop esp after dark for me being okay.

Mostly waiting for people to come over to complete the day, the Kidlet is playing her new video games and other assorted items she recieved (she really loves the Dr. Who items).

I need to start adding photo's to this bog, I am still working out all I want to put here and which aspects here.
Helping the Wife..
Today is a pretty good day, helped the wife with a few things, actually it was for my mom.

Back-story Laugh My wife owns and operates an Art / Photo printing business (Giclee Prints, Canvas, paper etc), a Art / Photo publishing business and an online art gallery. My mom (Barbara Sullivan her site is here) is an artist who paints in oils and is a client of my wife.

My mom wanted to give some of her small open edition art prints out for christmas, so we had to get these right out for her before christmas so that they can be send. Yes its being cut to the wire, but it is all done. What is left is a UV Coating to be applied and then for it to be mailed.

I brought down with me an art video on DVD but honestly I am feeling kinda beat now and may just veg a bit and listen to some music or an audio book till she takes me home.
