Linda Finstad turn coffee into cash

At the start of the pandemic (out of necessity) I started using coffee as paint.

As we all know coffee is very addictive and I quickly became addicted to painting with coffee.

I loved the rich aroma as I worked and the challenge of creating shape and form with just one colour.

This rather unusual art medium also inspired a rather unusual subject matter.

I started painting Angels!

Not the typical angels you see on Christmas cards - Oh no these angels

had big butts, frizzy hair and even bigger attitudes.

My sassy coffee angels became extremely popular and the stars of 3 published books

Just Not That Kind of Angel 

Everyday Angels

Everyday Angels in Training 

Due to popular demand my coffee angels are also available as prints - Greeting Cards and Magnets

from www.Asharperimage.photostockplus.com

To my amazement I had found a way to turn coffee into cash.

 

 

 

So in the spirit of giving back 

I decided to show others how to paint with coffee 

I can't guarantee you will be able to turn it into cash 

but I can guarantee you will be able to turn it into paint

and have fun experimenting with this rather unusual art medium.

Note:  This project is designed for adults  - I will include children if they are over 10 yrs and accompanied by an adult.  However I don't do children's parties, youth groups or schools.  This is just my preference (coffee art is suitable for all ages) however I prefer to work with adults rather than children.
