Kim Cowley alias The Kitchen Witch presents.............

Kim Cowley and I have been friends for a few years now and bless her she does not have a blog so I let her use Practically Magickal to post her entries for Celebrate Oz because.....well it just wouldn't be an arty party without the wonderful and creative work of Kim. If you would like to see more of her work you can visit her Facebook page "The Kitchen Witch". Kim and her husband Martin are both artists and I am always fascinated by the work that they do. Kim is now doing "Eco" printing which is quite wonderful. The use of nature's own beauty to create imprinted fabrics. She uses cotton and silk and the images that attained are just breathtaking. So without further ado....as they say.....here is Kim's take on the Shadows of Oz - Celebrate Oz 2015.


A shadow has fallen over Oz the leaves have fallen from the trees and it is always winter but never Christmas....whoops I popped over to Narnia there sorry!!...anyhow I digress, a shadow has fallen over Oz, all of the leaves have fallen off of the trees, and for a time it seemed that leaves would be forever forgotten,  fortunately eco printing has been  discovered  and so the witch was able to make prints of the dead leaves and turn them into a wall hanging, the  hanging will be delivered to the real magician of Oz by The Flying Monkey Couriers Inc. (though sadly not in time for Oma's birthday! )
  


As the leaves are winging their way to the real magician, well that is not strictly speaking true, the Flying Monkey Couriers Inc seem a bit dilatory and haven't bothered to pick it up yet!!


but as the leaves do have a new home the giveaway for the Oz challenge is this 6 by 8inch pen and ink drawing of Oz just as the shadow was starting to fall.


This is the giveaway
Leave a comment and I'll pick a name and announce the winner on April 18. Good Luck to all.

Darling Kim, I love your painting of the Ozian leaves and the wall hanging will be on the wall of Oz as soon as those lacky monkeys get with the program, tee hee. Thank you so much for being a participant in Celebrate Oz. You make and Olde Broad very happy. xoxo Oma Linda

I would have been here sooner but I've been wandering in Narnia..some little Kitchen Witch gave me Incorrect directions! But now I'm on the Yellow Brick road (Which is dirty and a bit broken from shadows) and I see the most beautiful Gnoma holding her gift from Kim (Having just received it from a flying monkey courier.)
And then I see, shimmering in the air before me, a Wonderful small work that is so unique, so Ozzy! I WANT! I add my name to the list and on I go down the road...

I am so easily distracted by pointers that spread sprinkled glitter.
I love the eco friendly creativity!
And then I got sidetracked looking for the correct Kitchen Witch Fb page.
I just love the Flying Monkey Courier burlap!

Kim said...

Thank you! I am distracted by the pointer sparkles too!! You can find the witch me on

A lovely bit of artwork that truly shows your talents. Be sure to visit Magician of Oz and read my contribution to the Shadow of Oz.

Dearest Ms. Kim, where were you these last few weeks? Seriously. We could have used your witch's talents, here in New York City. We needed some help getting rid of Old Man Winter and bringing spring.

So glad the witch was able to fix it for Oz!

I laughed as you popped off to Narnia LOL... the Flying Monkey Couriers Inc will make their delivery soon I'm sure and fingers crossed they won't damage your beautiful artwork when delivering to the lucky recipient (please flying monkey do you fly as far as Australia?) Greeting from the 'other' Oz & loved the post Kim :)
