Finished piece for the art auction...

Here's my piece for the Habitat for Humanity
art auction held at the Staggering Ox.


This is my "steam" rising from the cup of coffee. 
I used a different glue to get a finer, more controlled line of glue for the ground coffee. 
After it dried, I gently brushed
away loose coffee...and off came the "steam"! 
I was pretty bummed at first but realized it was for the good.
Now it looked more like steam rising!
The glue works well for card stock but not oil paint! 


Here's the close up of the steam & varnished coffee beans.

I'm enJOYing my Coffee Art....
...I have more "old" beans, too!   :D
