Coffee time!

Hi Bloggy friends!  I just wanted to show you a piece of art I created for my sister Angie for Christmas.  She LOVES COFFEE.  She loves MATH.  So I combined the two for her and this is called "Adding Caffeine". 

I love adding old paper to collages....it makes me think that something that was long forgotten is now front stage again.  I used a messed up Math book from 1893....very tattered and well used.  I put the "100" of the front....for no good reason....only that it was pretty.  I think is confused my sister.....lol.
I also love to add shading with brown ink and a small stiff paint brush.  I got lots of nice gifts for Christmas....and amongst them I got some large canvases.  I can't wait to create something with them. 


  1. It's fantastic!!! We need to go junking one of these days!!!!!!

  2. I love it! What a great piece. I'm just a wee bit jealous of your sister.

  3. oh I love it..O) my hubby is passionate about his coffee too;) says he will divorce me if we run out of it;) purchased 3 cans the other day at trader joes..not taking any chances.)lol
