Coffea Arabica by Pen-umbra
Coffea Arabica
The final piece from my Coffee and Tea series!

This is THE coffee. The legend goes that a young goatherd, Kaldi, noticed one day that his goats had a lot of extra energy after eating from the coffee plant. He took the berries back to his village, and the leaders threw them in a fire, saying they were useless. But the aroma from the fire was enticing and the beans were raked out of the fire and stewed.

If you happen to live in West Michigan, stop by Art Prize in Grand Rapids starting tomorrow!
Cafe au Lait by Pen-umbra
Cafe au Lait
From my "Coffee and Tea" series, Cafe au Lait comes from France in the 1960's. The 60's was a bit of a boom in experimental coffee drinks, after the global popularization of espresso in the 1950's.

This is part of ArtPrize 2015, which starts in just 2 days in Grand Rapids!

My cat JoJo makes a guest appearance here. She often insists on being publicly mysterious.
Kona by Pen-umbra
From my "Coffee and Tea" series. Coffee plants were first imported to Hawaii in 1825, resulting in the Hawaiian blend of coffee, Kona.
Espresso by Pen-umbra
From my "Coffee and Tea" series. Espresso, an Italian patent, was made popular globally in the 1950's.

This was one of the first that I designed and one of the few that I never changed the composition of. I knew from the start how I wanted it to look.
I'm hoping there may be some Italian viewers out there who know something about ArtExpo in Milan. It's during the Universal Expo next year and I've been invited to participate as an artist. I don't know much about it, or the area of the city it's in (Mecenate area in Milan), but if anyone on here has heard of it, I'd love to hear from you!

Here's a link to their site:

I hope you're all enjoying a lovely November--we're already getting snow here in Michigan!

Hi!  Great to hear from you!  How is your summer going?  I keep checking your dA page, hoping for new paper works.  Did that commission work out okay?  How about your hot drinks series?  I've been busy in the garden, wondering how your mom's is doing.  Any trips to A2 in your future?  Thanks for the comments and the fave.  So glad to hear from you.

Summer is going well! I'm trying my hand at gardening this year and it's been lovely! I dug up a million wild onions from the front yard and put in daisies, sunflowers, gladiolas, and lilies. The hot drinks series is going well, too. I'll be posting those images here soon, but you can check out what's finished over here:…

The commission is working out fine! I've finished the spring one (pictures coming soon), and the summer one is well underway.

Hope everything is going well for you! We'll have to meet up again soon!
