Artists Using Tea...
My daughter and I went up to St. Augustine for a weekend. There are a few great galleries to widdle away hours in. One particular gallery had a ‘TEA’ artist’s prominently displayed. His work was all done by varying colors of tea, made into beautiful landscapes. At the time I didn’t take note of his name, for I have more art than walls left in my home. My point is that if there was one, there were bound to be many others. So, tea is for more than drinking, eating (culinary addition), smelling (candles room sprays and perfumes), fabric dying and applying to one’s body in various ways. Doing some research on the matter brought up incredible talent in the arts. We appreciate these artist’s talents and hope that you will too.

From The Meat Art Show, called the “Meat After Meat Joy”, which was a group exhibition in New York of contemporary artists who use meat in their work. Okay, so this doesn’t use tea, but it portrays our favorite cuppa. By Betty Hirst
