Coffee is the cure of all things in my life, when I'm feeling stressed, anxious, happy and thirsty for connection; I grabb a coffee! In this time of uncertainty and confusion, I was thinking what activity do i miss the most: the answer is always Coffee. For me this beverage is more than a stimulant , Coffee is the agent that allows social networking to thrive. It gives me the chance to connect with new friends and catch up with old.
For this painting I wanted it to feel as if you are engrossed in the best conversation, pared with the perfect first sip of Coffee. I used real coffee for the backdrop, layering it till I got the perfect espresso colour. With every cup that I now share by myself I remember the feelings that I had in a crowded Coffee shop. I miss the ambient conversations faded in the background, the strong smell of freshly brewed Coffee, the sound of the steemer getting ready to meet the cup and friendly faces that greet you with your regular cup of happiness.
