I'm so excited and so honored to post my first EHAG offering.
I loved doing this so much,
that I have my next offering all sketched out and notes taken.
My Hedgewitch Crow takes me back,
nearly twenty years ago.
sitting in the kitchen of an 1812 home.
I would sketch away as the sun streamed through the bubbled
and wavy glass that was original to the house.
On cloudy days,
I would draw by candlelight.
It was when history came alive for me.
Spurred on by my friend and mentor...
we would giggle and laugh about Halloween done right.
Not the horror shows with blood and gore..
But one with a wink and a nod to days gone by.
The old cemeteries of New England were our inspire.
Some afternoons were spent among the tombstones and reading epitaphs...taking notes.
And so tonight,
as EHAG opens,
I am honoring that time in my life,
and all the dearness that it held.
I'm back home and dancing in those memories.
My Hedgewitch Crow is a wink and a nod to the 1700's.
In one arm,
one of my wire baskets with Sweet Annie,
preserved from my garden.
On her waist,
a bottle filled with moss and roots.
(dried and preserved)
A healer in crow form
in Fraktur inspired profile.
She stands on a wooden base,
and has fabric boots laced up,
under her chemise.
