Treasures in the Trash

Tomorrow is Australia Day, a bit like the 4th of July but basically a day for the beach and firing up the "barbie". I can't believe the contrast in weather between here and Vermont.....so hot here, so cold there. I love keeping up with our group's work on the blog....Cynthia is obviously taking advantage of the indoor time and producing some wonderful new paintings!

My work continues to truck along. I have finished the feathery piece and moved on to another large one. Here' the torn tea bag piece, which is 50" x 39", still in search of a title......

The new one is being assembled on an old rice paper blind that I found in the trash a few years ago. I knew it would eventually come in handy! It is about 72" x 60", so presents some challenges as I put it together. This photo was taken a couple of days ago and I have completed about twice as much as of this afternoon.

My fan has been cranking away and the only problem is the occasional tea bag that goes floating through the air!

  1. I'm delighted to see you continue your wonderful tea bag odyssey. I have a bowl of tea bags filling up, just waiting to be part of some new creation. Miss you.
