vintage teas

tea packaging USSR
i have a little time this week to take a breath between projects, so i've been painting some of my favorite tea packaging from the USSR. it started with just one, but i didn't realize how much i had missed painting just for myself and before i knew it i had painted three more. there's a lesson in there, that no matter how busy my days get, i need to take the time to paint even some dinky little thing for my own pleasure, just as a reminder of the meditative nature of painting tiny details - something that's easy to forget when the clock is ticking and the deadlines are looming.
