tiān - add, replenish

We were going to call the 字 section of this blog 天添 something, but couldn't think of a suitable something. I also came across 添 in a story I started to read, but didn't recognise it. It also appears in one of the first Chengyu that I learnt.

画蛇添足
To draw legs on a snake, i.e. to ruin something by adding something superfluous.
