I made a new painting this week and listed it in my shop today! It’s called “Lucky Friend Pile” because of all the friendly, but very protective little cats, moths and ghosts hiding in the wild flowers in the early evening. The oranges ripening on the trees as well as little touches on her socks are done in shimmery gold ink and the flowers were painted using guache and red hibiscus tea. The background is stained with black tea. I painted it on upcycled pine wood, so it smells like black tea and a forest. It feels alive to me, and wild.
