Artwork Description

Inspired by a REALLY good cup of coffee, this is my tribute to the Goddess of Coffee, whose blessed, bittersweet embrace jumpstarts her tired children when they need it most.

Thank you Jade! She remains one of my all-time favorites too. I've got a few others in the works to complement her, so be sure to check back! Smile

Another favorite of mine, Amy! I can smell the coffee just by looking at her! Love the colors and the style you used. Keep the work coming!

Hahahaha! This is great! Wonderful design and colours! As a fellow coffee fan, have you seen my interpretation? Keep up the good work! Smile

If you mean in the respect that the painting was intended to inspire folks to drink coffee, then thank you for the complement!

For what it's worth, the coffee that inspired her was Lowery's fantastic Creme Brulee, which you can order direct from this wonderful little Washington state family-owned coffee mill: http://www.loweryscoffee.com

Congratulatoins, Amy. I think you really captured the essence of coffe. The goddess seeems to be made of coffe beans.

LOL What a lovely thing to say! Thank you! Laughing out loud

I have it on good authority that the Blessed Lady of Caffeine does indeed bless chai too. Especially really good mocha or vanilla chai...yum! Laughing out loud

Thank you Szabolcs! I'm very glad to know the image matched the atmosphere created by the title - that's a challenge with each new painting.

I found her in the rising steam of an early morning cuppa that my beloved husband made for me when I was having trouble waking up. The coffee tasted so wonderful that it actually inspired me to create - I was truly "touched by the java goddess" at that moment. LOL

It was enough to read the title, and I knew what it was all about... great work! I like the rays in the background very much.

Guest's picture

Does she bless chai tea, too? I'm not much of a java drinker, but I can't live without chai tee.

Guest's picture

She's Fabulous!!!
I'm forever looking for her in my many daily cups...glad to see you've found her and done her such justice. This is just wonderful! Wink

Art at its best.
