Mixed Media Artist

Tea Leaves

This is a 6″x8″ mixed media painting on paper covered canvas. The sides are .5″ and are painted red. This painting is $75 + shipping and is available HERE.

Read me my tea leaves
Tell me my fortune
Tell me my future
Like you used to
From your old china cups
I wish you could read me my tea leaves
You’ve been gone too long
I can’t even remember the fortunes you told me
I can’t remember what my future had held for me
And I can’t remember the words you read me
Words I willed you to say at the time
Not even distant memories
Comfort me, Nanny
With your magic words
Tell me my fortune

  5. Thanks Aunty Pat. It did the same for me. It made me really remember her again. It is sad how memories get so foggy as we get older.
