Starbucks Commission - Coffee Dragon
6.5ft x 4.8ft
Medium: 100% Starbucks Coffee
I was honored and thrilled. I began work on two pieces using coffee blends as the core medium.
My goal was to use the core of the brand and nothing else on this painting. Brand Art.
I chose Komodo Dragon Blend at various levels of darkness applied to a blank canvas.
Over weeks of application using different strengths, I created a coffee image that was richer, deeper and more varied than I ever thought possible. Textures began appearing…it was fascinating to see.
Work schedule. 2 weeks of daily applications needed to create the depth/density desired.
After this process, I applied a sealer/protectant. It was delivered on February 28, 2020.
It will be hung in place by Starbucks at a later date.
Big thank you to Don Buddy, an amazing sculpture artist (among other things) that helped me build the frame and stretch the painted canvas.
