Let me begin by saying I’m not generally a big fan of drinking tea. Strictly a coffee girl, here. That said, these paintings are so wonderful, I might need to change my mind. These are the tea bag paintings by fellow New Yorker, artist Ruby Silvious.
After playing with the little recycled canvases, Silvious decided to challenge herself to a year-long painting-a-day project. She spent 2015 faithfully drinking, drying, and painting, and at the end of the year, she published her efforts in a book, “365 Days of Tea.” Since that success, the artist has traveled to Japan and southern France for month-long trips, drinking and painting! (If I had the opportunity for a month-long trip, I’d certainly be drinking, too, though likely not tea…)
