New Collage/Painting

This is my new 18"x 18" painting. I took many dried used tea bags, cut up in pieces, sewed together, glued on board, with several layers of venetian plaster, oil and acrylic paint, graphite, then covered with more venetian plaster, more layers of paint and graphite, finished with cold wax. This piece is titled "The Art of Tea #3".
I love this painting and now have the joy of looking at it daily before it goes anywhere :-).
I always love to hear what you are thinking.
Happy Memorial Day, a bittersweet holiday filled with reflection.

Wow! When I first saw it, I thought of old treasure maps carried under shirts and opened out under candle light. There are parts which look like islands and details galore! Fascinating piece!
