Coffee and Friends… the perfect blend – hand lettering and watercolor illustration

Coffee and Friends... the perfect blend.

This is another 5×7 hand lettered illustration for the women’s retreat centerpieces.

Coffee and Friends... the perfect blend.

I found the quote on Pinterest (surprise surprise, I know), and early on, I saw the cups (or something similar) with their steam there as well, but the illustration and styling is my own.

Coffee and Friends... the perfect blend.

I just love the coffee beans at the bottom.  I was still trying to decide if I would add a boarder (which is funny, because I almost always do) when something just seemed missing.  I think they brought just what the whole illustration needed, don’t you?

Original artwork done on 140 lb. cold pressed paper.
