A Winter Challenge

As many of you know, I'm a member of the online artists' group EHAG. Most of us are known for our Halloween work, but this month the group was challenged to create a "crossover" piece (something with both Halloween and winter holiday elements) using the theme "Wintry and Spooky Owls".....


"Moonlight Totem" is what I've called this handsome fellow. I was pleased with the way he turned out. Such magical creatures, owls....and a blessing to be visited by one! I've seen several barn owls, but have never seen one of these snowy beauties in person. I imagine they're quite impressive up close and personal.

This one will list on eBay tonight at 9PM eastern. :)

Look for more new work soon; a clock, a footstool, a table and a recipe box. I also hope to visit the ceramic studio next week, so barring any firing disasters, there should be a pie plate or two before the holidays.

Right now I'm off to forage for supper...It's been dark and blustery all day today, and I've been working madly while sipping copious quantities of Twinings Winter Spice tea (another new favorite!)...It's a good night for soup, or possibly apple cake if I'm feeling ambitious....

I wish you could join me. :)

Instead, I'll wish you a happy and creative rest of the weekend, and be back in a day or two with more goodies.....
