Sometimes I wonder if the charm of coffee is that at the base of everything they are kind of lazy? They hang out on a tree in a tropical climate all their lives. Someone picks them and they become world travelers for a time… before we grind them to bits. Maybe they only get hyper from consumption. Maybe they miss their lazy lives.
Did I tell you how nervous and excited I am about painting every day? So excited I woke up at 3 a.m. ready to paint for January 1 2013. Seriously though, I need to work on light source in my next painting. Which is tomorrow. YAY!
ps: This painting’s base layer is a fine blend of Peet’s Sulawesi and Columbian. You can’t beat the Umber color or the coffee smell!
