New Ehag Emporium piece! Malaki of Mordone Marsh...

Before you is the all seeing
"Malaki, of Mordone Marsh"

Born of the ancient and Celtic ways,
Malaki is known as the messenger of days;

The Seer of much, and friend of night's gloom,
Will he predict an impending doom?

In the form of an owl, hold him high as you prance,
On All Hallow's Eve, masquerade in a trance;

Beware, as Goblins, and Goulies appear,
in the glow of the moon and in shivering fear;
They'll whisper of secrets, too frightful to hear...Beware!

"Malaki" is a hand sculpted paper mache piece
created especially for the Aug EHAG Emporium.
His hat is painted and aged fabric, with a German Glass Glitter hat band.
His painted wand is embelished with fine ribbon, brass bells, and tinsel.
Malaki has "Trick or Treat" hand painted on the back of his head.
13" x 3 1/4"
$75.00 + shp

If interested, please e-mail me

Thank you So much for looking!

What's Blooming Wednesday and Reptilian Smiles

We're lucky here in the city, in that we don't really have snakes
but we do have lots of Western Lizards that live here in the garden.
This little fellow was on the wall, supervising me cleaning out the spa.

This is a Confederate Rose, which is actually a variety of Hibiscus.
It's blossoms are often a good 5 inches across, and although short lived
they are a wonderful suprise overhanging the pond.

This time of year we also have a few of these jumbo Japanese Beetles zooming around.
This green guy was taking in the fragrance of the Sweet Pea Bush.

The Bower Vine, or Humming Bird Vine creeps it's way up the pine tree and

                                                 blooms most of the Spring and Summer.
                   This plant was a gift, mailed to us by my Grandma Tinnon, back in the early 80's.
            It's amazing to look back and realize that what was once a dormant little twig of a thing, in a
                  4" pot, has grown to elegant proportions, generously yielding abundant orange blossoms
  and remembrances of her, from year to year.

The 1st Annual EHAG Next Generation Halloween Art Contest!

What: A Kid's Halloween Art Contest

                                                     Who: Children ages 10-14

When: Now thru August 31st, 2010. The winner will be announced by September 7, 2010

Where: Online at the EHAG Facebook Page and EHAG Blog

How: Parents email an image of your little ghoul's Halloween themed artwork to ehaagartists@hotmail.com along with the young artist's name, age, date, contact info, title of piece and medium used.

Prize: $100 gift certificate for art supplies from the winner's art supply store of choice.

Be as creative as possible and all artwork must be created solely by the young artist. We ask that no gore be depicted. Artwork will be judged based on originality and use of medium, and all mediums will be accepted. (All EHAG family members are excluded from participation.)

The artists of EHAG are obviously not the first generation to create Halloween art, and we certainly will not be the last. So, we decided to sponsor a kid's art contest that both celebrates our most favorite holiday and nurtures their creative spirit! And, as we know that there must be children out there that love both art and Halloween, why not begin to encourage them today!

Good luck, and we look forward to seeing your creative Halloween art entries!

Aug WIP and a pre Autumn Surprise!

It's been a while since I've posted a WIP so I thought I would throw out a
little tease. :-)
Look what greeted me on the ground early this morning!!!

The first Autumnal leaves of the season!
Ha Cha!
While the rest of the country has been roasting in triple digit temperatures,
here on the coast we've been lucky so far with a pretty constant 74 degrees. Ahhhh
Of course, our warmest is usually Sept, but I'm hoping for more coolness to welcome in the Fall.
I can taste the candy corn now!
