Words to get you going

I recently painted these coffee inspired words onto a clients kitchen soffit.


She wanted a simple font, a few coffee cups and viney accents here and there. 




When I came up with the design for the vines,
I wanted to make the leaves mimic the shape of a coffee bean. 


I like to create subtle or subliminal elements to my art
that tie the composition together in a number of ways. 

I also like to choose paint colors that accent the room. 
So, the paint colors that I decided to use for this project compliment the cabinets
and the adjoining rooms walls. 

So this is some of what I've been up to these days.  I also want to share a fun round robin project a group of us girls have been working on.  I just have to make my pictures web friendly then I'll post the fun altered book round robin projects in the next few days.

What a wonderful freeze you created!
My kitchen in DC looked very similar, I wished I had thought of painting the soffit.
