"Enchanted Letters"

It's that time again. :)

The EHAG Emporium doors have creaked open for the last-day-of-the month update. So many Halloween goodies waiting to be captured, including my own offering - an original, one of a kind stationery box, which doubles as a lap desk (for larger photos, please click)...

Hand painted in acrylics on a birch wood box, the piece measures 12" x 12" x 3 1/2", and is finished with a clear, acrylic varnish....

The almost glowing exterior features a witch immersed in her writing, candle and teapot within reach, as her cat and raven familiars look on.  The interior is decoupaged, and the envelope is aged and hand lettered (from "Celestia Pendragon" to "Lettie Spiderwort"), and sent "by owl's wing"...

The piece is $275 plus insured UPS shipping, which will vary by location, and is as always, offered on a first-come basis once the Emporium updates. Please email to purchase, and thanks for viewing my work! :) UPDATE - SOLD.

"The Magical Pantry"

This is what I've been immersed in all week....
 A *magical* witch's pantry, full of herbs and potions, books of spells and charms, a copper cauldron, and more....

What fun this was to paint! Truly a labor of love, and one of those pieces I'm sorely tempted to keep. It's listed in the Etsy shop now, and I do hope it find a good home. :)

I'll be back very soon with new work, and an update on The Mice President, who is now home from the hospital and slowly recovering.

Thanks, as always, for taking a peek, and East Coast friends, try to stay cool!

Hearts and Blessings

Just popping in to share the latest original, a whimsical little garden mouse, pouring heart shaped blessings of love on the flowers below...

This piece was a blessing to paint too, and a respite from the continued medical challenges we're facing with the Mice President (who is going on his fourth week in the hospital with lung problems).

It's listed in the Etsy shop, and I do hope it finds a good home. :)

Look for more work very soon, including some wicked cool Halloween offerings!
