Coffee Portrait of Angela Davis
Coffee on watercolor paper.
One of my most recent. I've included lots of step-by-step on this process with making the painting and layering the tones for anyone curious to watch how this painting shaped out. Portraits are something I've greatly enjoyed working on for a long time, and the coffee lends itself easily to a sepia tone optimal for expressing people of color. Meeting the organic unplanned characteristics that show themselves has got to be one of the best parts of using this medium. My history with the use of coffee as a medium began around the time I was traveling and a habitually coffee drinking teenager, born of the philosophy that there's actually no excuse to not be making and practicing art wherever you are. Pick through the trash or use dirt, just keep doing it. When there wasn't a paint brush, especially while traveling, I'd braid my hair and use the end.
Could go on for a while for so many reasons about this piece. Congratulations and so many thanks to Angela Davis.

#AdoptaSloth We can't help falling in love with Elvis... 😱❤️🐽His is quite the success story!
He was found in 2015 at Manuel Antonio National Park at only two days old. He was the runt of the litter and had to be fed every hour. He spent most of his time with Bruno, who we received a few weeks after Elvis, and they formed a very close bond. Both he and Bruno were released in July 2017. He’s an avid explorer who loves his nighttime expeditions. He’s also a favorite here at the Sloth Institute. He’s a total ladies man, and kisses female sloths to greet them in the wild! His small size and sweet face make everybody fall in love with him! .
Want to adopt Elvis? Visit theslothinstitutecostarica.org When you symbolically adopt a sloth like Elvis you help orphaned and injured sloths return back to the rainforest where they belong. 😀🤙🏼 .
As a thank you, you will receive an Adoption Certificate featuring your adopted sloth.
We thank you in advance for your support! Your donation is greatly appreciated.

You were a beautiful heartbreak. You left me whole, unscathed, and truly loved. And if my words have the power to move you, then let them be your little comfort that my goodbye is someone's hello. -m
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.
[ #Ecclesiastes 3:1-8]
