i am in love with painting on teabags daily!

this is a collage of some painted in january

i primarily used watercolor and posted them

each day on instagram.  now there are a 

few art friends who are interested in starting to paint

these lovelies.  each teabag brand has a different in texture

and reacts in its own way to the medium.  for the most part,

i have  stayed away from acrylic until today.   it's all

an experiment and i will keep you posted

i am pleased and honored to announce 

that i am published in the current issue of 

cloth paper scissors.  

this is a way that i start a project when you are 

stuck or just want to dive in without making a big 

deal about starting.  also it is a fun

to do in a group.

posting the lovely artists at paint party friday.  thank you
to our hostesses kristen and eva
