I've finished another of the 3 small canvasses seen in my July 24 posting. This one was inspired by a label from a box of tea my friend, Susan, in Seattle had. The image of an Asian lady holding a tea bowl was too precious to throw away so I brought it home with me. I glued it to the previously textured canvas, added origami papers, tissue, tulle and threads, then went at it with paints. This was one of those times when I just had to trust that it would all turn out well in the end. Like the Tea Reader, I looked to find what was revealed once the "swirling" had stopped.
