Baba Renaissance Crow, tonight at the EHAG Emporium!

Tonight is another wonderful unveiling of fun original Halloween Art from the talented artists of EHAG!
The 31st of another month is upon us, and the EHAG Emporium once again swings open it's doors
for the first time this year, tonight at 9:00pm (EST).

After a bit of teasing and a pretty much, non descriptive sneak peek in an earlier post, (hehe) 
here is my EHAG piece for this month!

"Baba Crow, Ready to Trick or Treat"

This kookie little guy lives cosily in his nest, high above the ground, in a grand ol Oak tree
at ye local Renaissance Faire.

Since he was hatched, he's dreamed of Halloween night and so, has taken inspiration for his
Halloween costume from the Lords and ladies of the Shire below.
Neath the light of the moon and the shadow of Autumn colored leaves,
little Baba created his special togs.

He dons a Jester type cap, carries a smiling harvest moon staff
and also sports a candy corn bandolier and miniature pumpkin treat bucket.
He's even decorated his nest, as crows do, with a wee little Jack o Lantern and a touch of orange.
He can hardly wait till sundown on All Hallow's Eve. Hazzah!
Little Baba comes signed by me, and numbered 1/1

You're all welcome to pull up a chair, pour a cup of tea, then peruse and perhaps shop the
treasures offered over at the EHAG Emporium tonight!

I'm Published in Celebrate365's Winter edition!

I'm finally, although a bit belated, listing the piece that was published in
the 2010 Winter edition of the Celebrate 365 magazine.
"Comfort & Joy"!

Little Comfort has gathered sticks and twigs from the shrubs edge,
 and is peddling his firewood to the passers by.
His lovely wife Joy, is preparing their humble Christmas cheese,
atop an old White Birch stump, 
and much like a plum pudding, it's complete with traditional holly.

Comfort sits atop an old wooden spool, and it's most clear indeed that
these two mousies are devoted one another through both prosperous and meager times.

They are both hand sculpted of Papermache, and are mounted on a round wooden base.
A dusting of German Glass Glitter completes their Wintery scene.

I'd like to thank Connie Porcher of Celebrate 365 Magazine, to whom
I'm most grateful for selecting my art. Ha Cha!

"Comfort and Joy" will be listed on Ebay this afternoon.

Thank you for looking and have a great weekend! :-)

Poe's Midnight Dreary.....

Today is the Birthday of the American poet
Edgar Allan Poe, born January 19th 1809.

In honor of his birth, the PFATT group issued an art Challenge for it's members to
create a piece specifically for this day.
My piece is a hand sculpted Raven made of Paperclay, and he is perched upon
the name POE which is cut from Fir wood then painted and aged.
There is a woodburned rose to symbolize Poe's undying love.
This new work is listed now on Ebay 

The Raven...

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,

Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -

Only this, and nothing more.'....

There and back again...and rarin' to go!

I'm finally back in commission! Ha Cha!... well, nearly.
I wanted to thank all of my friends and family who have been so generously supportive after my surgery and
for the wonderful outpouring of love and healing energy.
Being in the natural health world, I've opted to go a Homeopathic/Holistic route for treatment,
and so far I'm doing most excellent!
As part of my therapy, I helped my Dad as he built what I'm calling my "Healing Bench". Being a lover of plants, I've always wanted a greenhouse, but since space doesn't allow, my Dad has built this beautiful three tiered bench for my orchids! My step-Dad had previously built this mini pergola. (yes, we all get along great!) So combine the two and you have a beautiful orchid shade house!
Isn't it super!

Since this photo, I've finished staining it and just need a few more finishing touches, such as the overhead shade cloth and little copper caps for the posts, before the orchids move in.
Boy, sorting through the lumber stacks at Lowe's, and lifting and reaching, (albeit in slow motion) have really done wonders to help get my muscles back up to speed. Now I just need some Myofascial Release sessions to address the fascia and scar tissue and I'll be good as new! 
 I'll post a photo of the completed project later.
 Love you Dad!... Thank You again and Happy 75th Birthday!!!

So folks, I'm sure you're wondering when you might catch a glimpse of some new art? Well... let's see... I have a fun piece that was published in the Winter issue of Celebrate 365 that I'll be posting shortly, and many more waiting in the wings so stay tuned. This year will be bigger than ever!
I hope you like the little tweaking that I've given my blog, as an update for 2011.
Thank you again everyone, and Love to all of you!.... Oh!... and Happy New Year!!! :-)
