From Laura!:

5x7, bristol vellum, oil pastels, prismacolor pencils

"mmmm, i love coffee and this week's theme word and the fabulous pics from tonx's collection of latte art had my mind brewing with ideas, but in the end i decided to go for a realistic-looking piece to help with my new year's resolution to draw or sketch daily (so far so good!)"

some coffee quotes:

"Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee." ~ Stephanie Piro
"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons." ~ T.S. Eliot
"Actually, this seems to be the basic need of the human heart in nearly every great crisis - a good hot cup of coffee." ~ Alexander King
"Deja Brew: The feeling that you've had this coffee before." ~ unknown
"Be a coffee-drinking individual - espresso yourself!" ~ unknown

and can you believe this one?!!

"Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking, nauseous puddlewater."
~ The Women's Petition Against Coffee, 1674
