"Turning Point"

Dark Roast Coffee Abstraction

**This Painting Helps Coffee Sustainability

 

I wanted to emphasize the 'point' of the title, so I kept turning the canvas 90 degrees as I applied the many layers of washes.

Also, it can be displayed vertical or horizontal.

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.
