    Coffee Art

    For my fellow bean lovers....I thought you may enjoy this.

    Artists paints portraits with layers of espresso. Many famous paintings recreated in espresso art.

    That's kind of what I meant....great art, regardless of the medium, but then count the medium in and it gets even cooler!

    I went back to look, and I had selected three instead of one, so the price was actually $80 each.

    It must give you a discount for multiples then. When I put just 1 in the cart it was $100.

    Creation of Coffee, Mona Latte, Lady of Chocolat, Starry Night, Venice......are some of my faves.

    The Hotel California album cover art would probably come out pretty nice.

    Wife and I talked for a minute about it (not even serious talk yet), but if we had her do one, we may try to see if she can do Dogs Playing Poker, but substitute greyhounds (like ours) in for the dogs.
