Perfect Pot of Tea, 2019

watercolour on 100% cotton rag paper
76 x 60 cm, framed

Tea leaves come from the Camellia Sinensis plant, but their flowers aren’t very showy, so I decided that our own camellia tree would make a far prettier pot of tea, it would probably taste pretty awful though… This little pink winged phasmid has turned up to find out. We call them rain fairies as we often see them in their pink tutus just after rain. I suspect the drought was getting to me by this point, wishing for our rain fairies to come visit.
