A few of my dozens of traditional Chinese brushes, which I have come to use quite regularly in my work, alongside my 'Western' ones. Some ink had been ground on the inkstone, and there is some strongly brewed black tea in the blue and white dish (emerging from the refrigerator looking as though milk had been added to it, though none was). I had hoped to use both in a not dissimilar way to the Self Portrait
(below) in a piece of work. In the event, I subsequently changed my mind and used neither (I continued using the brushes though).
