Tea Time

Got a chance to relax over a cup of tea at my friend Renee’s house.  And while we sipped tea and talked, I took the portrait of a little creamer sitting on the table, part of my new have-pen-will-draw life style.

The creamer, a patient model, stood for second picture too.  And I doodled a bit of its decoration separately. 

What a wonderful tea time.  And there were cookies, too!

The Koi Poetic

Australian poet and blogger friend Gabrielle Bryden has written a poem about my koi and remembers our mutual friend the late Paul Squires in whose poetry magic got caught using words.  I feel very honored to have my koi swim in a poem, and when I tell the koi they will be splashing.  Read it, experience it,  here.
