The Amount of Tea I Drink in a Week

Ok, I have a problem. I *love* tea. That may not sound like a problem but I *REALLY* love tea and when I made this group of paintings I actually sat down and figured out how much tea I drink in a week, on average. I drink about 17 cups of hot & iced tea a week. I’m ok with that, especially if there are cookies involved.

These are the 3 paintings that I was working on Sunday.  They have actual tea leaves embedded in it– vanilla spice chai to be exact (my favorite!). Each have the a tally of 17 hatched into it to reveal the underpainting color. The overall color is how I like to drink my tea– milky! This was really a great mix since the painting smells like chai tea with honey– perfect!  I really do love the smell of encaustic so adding tea to it is like a dream come true.

I’m hoping to make a bunch more with different colors but for now, these are available via or
