Tea Stain Botanical Original Painting #3

Tea Stain Botanical Original Painting #3

Have you ever heard of the "Madeline moment"? 


Essentially it's how a memory can be triggered from something tangible.  In the case of the writer Marcel Proust - his character's entire backstory unfolds simply by the smell of a Madeline biscuit and a cup of tea.  


I adore this thought, and am a firm believer in how something as simple as the smell of a cup of tea can transport you to the most potent of memories.  What a gift we have as humans; that of nostalgia, mixed with the wonders of our senses!


In ode to the "Madeline moment" and the desire to honour the simple moments in life, I have created these ephermeral flowers, symboising the importance of tiny, precious moments in time. 


The flowers are created with swooshie brush marks created with tea, and feature walnut ink and metalllic gold flowers and leaves.  The gold is very hard to photograph but it sparkles in the sun!  The pigment itself is filled with sparkling gold mica - its very beautiful.
