I apologize to all tea aficionados, especially Tracey Fletcher King. Yes, I know tea should never come in a bag. I know good tea should be loose and allowed to mingle with the perfect temperature water in the best cup. I hang my head in shame. My only explanation is that it was such a cool picture and I knew it would work on the toned paper. I wanted to try to capture the wet paper look. Forgive me.
My only redeeming behavior is that at least the tea I drink is premium (even if it is in a bag, sowwies.) I hate having leaves floating around in my cup. I’m lazy. Sue me. See, now I’m getting defensive. I LIKE teabags. So there! Sorry. :o(

Drinking: Earl Grey Tea (I ran out of hazelnut coffee yesterday)
Feeling: SO HAPPY! I love my new toned paper. I’m thrilled that toned paper insists that I put down the paintbrush and pick up the pencil crayons. I’ve missed them. I love drawing as much as I love painting and it’s so nice to have the kind of paper that forces me to use other media.
