Does Spilled Coffee make it a Mixed Media?

It’s been a long time since I painted any still life paintings, but lately I find great joy and comfort painting these small compositions. I look forward to weekend mornings when I can sip fresh pressed coffee and watch the sunrise without rushing off to my day job. When the room fills with usable light, it’s time to paint.

My pallet is filled with Lukas 1862 professional oil paints. I recently started switching over to this brand. They are made by a very old German company. I am very pleased with the consistency and drying time. Lukas uses non-yellowing sunflower oil and enhances its paint with beeswax. Before this I was using Windsor & Newton, and Grumbacher. It’s fun to have time to try out different paints and mediums.

After the morning painting session, my daughter and I hiked around a local park. It was good to see people respecting social distancing this weekend. Last weekend was another story. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
