Tea?

This one's weird. I dried a teabag and painted part of it with thin black paint. I also photographed a bit of paper I used to clean my paintbrush and added it to the mix. I then added, lower right, my name in Chinese. The result has a Chinese look, appropriate for the concept of "tea." Click to enlarge. ©Carol Leigh

Thanks, Marianne. And if you think this one's weird, well, the next one coming up is even weirder. But still cool. --Carol Leigh

How is "weird" defined? I see various definitions such as, "strikingly odd or unusual" and would add, "unique; different."

I would not label or title this "weird" ... I would categorize as "one-of-a-kind" abstract creations on a small canvas (tea bag).

One thing that I like about abstract art is that you can turn it and appreciate the various positions. Many of my art teachers judged work by turning the piece upside-down or on various sides and seeing beyond the expected. Seeing beyond the norm and accepting something beyond first thought.

Unique and "one-of-a-kind" works of art Carol.
