Illustration Friday - Tea

Illustration Friday this week is "tea". I love hot peppermint tea. I love slightly sweetened ice tea, lots of ice and sprigs of mint. I think I have a couple more cups in me, but this is my first try. Later - am adding 'Camomile Tea' that did many years ago.

Kim, she has the most fabulous kimono! Your illo is beautiful....I would wear that and drink green tea and feel like a happy queen.

Smooch,

These are both wonderful. I love the very composed posture of the woman and the pattern on her kimono. It all comes together in a picture of serenity and order.
