Original Coffee & Tees Abstraction painting


Inspired by the impressionistic textures of sunlight on mountains and clouds in the distance.


Discarded, expired coffee, no longer viable for consumption was brewed and reduced down to a dark resin and applied to canvas. (This painting contains approximately 60 cups of coffee produced from 2 lbs of thrown out coffee beans.) Once dried, using only an old water soaked t-shirt, the artist systematically placed and removed the patterns to form the impression of rolling hills and snow capped mountain range. Then, using the same t-shirt stretched linearly, he pulled away the impression of sun lit clouds.
