    This is beautiful!

  • Thankyou Susan. It is always difficult to scan or photograph coffee paintings well because the coffee is always quite reflective. I’m so glad you like it!

    A lovely coffee painting: a joy to look at (with wonderful memories too!)

  • Thankyou so much Liz! Coffee is turning out to be a wonderful medium for painting old things. I’m quite happy with the result :)

    Oh my! I love this and it brings back memories of my old trike. I love the vintage rendering of this and the amazing tones and color achieved with the coffee and mixed media! Lots of mood here. Love it, love it!

  • You have put such a smile on my face with these lovely comments! I am really happy with how the coffee worked on this one as I really wanted that vintage feel.
