I have been playing once again with a tea bag, acrylic paint and pan pastels.
And I thought it was finished at this point, but .....
when I looked at it the next day, I decided it needed a bit more and added some pencil work (some of which is quite subtle and difficult to see in this image) with both a black watersoluable pencil, and a regular HB pencil.
I then called it finished again. We will see over the next few days whether it needs anything else.
I called it 'seeds of hope'. I continually seem to be planting seeds of hope these days, and am sure some of them will sprout with good things in the near and perhaps distant future.
