Coffee is a wonder. It’s a delicious beverage that can warm the body on a really cold day. It helps get people up and running as they go about their day. It also inspires some coffee lovers to create works of art.
Take for example the painting above. This beautiful rendition of Van Gogh’s Starry Night was done entirely with coffee. Its painter, Karen Eland, is a self taught painter and coffee lover. She has a full gallery of coffee art which she created between working on restoring pieces for the Louvre.
Karen is by no means the only talented artist who has discovered the joy of painting using the source of our favorite brew. There are many others who have created works of art using coffee, some of whom, like Karen have their works available online.
It’s easy to get started on coffee art. It simply starts with loving coffee and having a love of painting.
