It all started with a morning cup of Joe... I was working on another commission using watercolors, when all of a sudden, I spilled my cup of coffee all over the drawing. Pause for gasp... But, rather than trying to wipe up the mess, I took a moment to look.
The accidental spill, the shade of coffee, and how it got absorbed in the paper fascinated me. I started to dip my brush in the coffee and kept on painting.
People connect with coffee in a way that few non-caffeinated beverages can replicate. It's a universal beverage. It not only wakes us up in the morning but gathers people together, too.
