Illustration Friday: Tea

My tea-drinking friend Gillian's dog Cory is a flat coated retriever and we used to take her down to the lake together and throw sticks into the water. Upon seeing a stick being thrown into water for retrieval Cory gallops to the edge of the bank and launches herself into the air to float for a moment before plunging in with a gigantic Sploosh!

These days I'm drinking green tea. It's antioxidant properties make it more likely that my cervix will now stay uncancerous. Knowing that makes it taste a bit better. The medium for this picture was Sencha.

Heh heh--cute. Yeah, it's not the best tasting stuff but it's supposed to be great for you. Anyway, looks like you (and the dog) had fun!

Thank you, I didn't remember that about The Chamber of Secrets though I have read it so it could have been subterranean inspiration .

exquisitely sculpted - real tea too!

yes, i've heard it prolongs life but it's an acquired taste and life's too short for that. what cruel irony.

Thank you, I aim to please me and am pleased to please anyone else.

I like the idea of tea as the medium rather then the subject. There is something Susan Rothbergian, about the image.
