Art, Music and Words around The Coffee Table

Mmmmm….painting with coffee!

My coffee cup doubles as a paint palette: I brew up a good, strong batch of my favorite beverage and use it just like watercolor. Coffee from different parts of the globe creates different colors: African beans result in a rich reddish tone, for example. Central American coffee imparts a shiny, very dark brown. And your painting is wonderfully aromatic!

  1. Welcome to The Coffee Cup Club, Val! I hope you´ll enjoy to sit with us around the coffee table…
    What a nice surprise, this morning, to see you here while I´m drinking my milk coffee!
    And what a wonderful entry, so inspiring! I had no idea that one can paint with coffee, but when one thinks about it, it´s quite obvious as coffee stains… Be sure, I´ll try it. I wonder if it works too with my instant coffee… I´ll know it soon.
