Process: THRIVE Farmers expired (longer viable for consumption) Farmhouse Morning Blend coffee was brewed and reduced down to a dark resin and applied to canvas. (This painting contains approximately 90 cups of coffee produced from almost 3 lbs of thrown out coffee beans.) Once dried, using various mixtures of water and reduced coffee the artist splashed and manipulated layer upon layer of textures.
