Our Christmas Tree
This is our home lit with lights and ice lanterns in the freshly fallen snow.

Today, our Coffee Art® was featured on Will Work for Food:
Color Me Coffee
I saw this on yumsugar and I thought this was a really creative way to paint. Why is this painting so unique you ask?
For several years, Duluth based artists Andy and Angel Saur have been creating all of their works of art with coffee. Like fine watercolors, the coffee works as washes and shading and each painting is 100% coffee (with the exception of an acrylic coat to preserve the art). It started when the artists were working on a new exhibit for a coffee house. Hoping to create something unique and fun, they decided to work with coffee as a medium. To achieve the different gradients, the artists brew their own thick coffee and dilute as needed. (yumsugar)
My only question is, do you think they paintings actually smell like coffee?
Thanks, Will Work for Food!

It has been a tradition for the past several years to go to the Saur homestead to find our Christmas Tree. There was quite a bit of deep snow in the forest, but we didn't have to hike too far to find our tree for this year. It is a lot of fun and is probably one of the highlights of the Christmas season. We are out in the calm beauty of the wilderness with family and away from the hectic energy associated with the holidays. It is a day we look forward to each year.

Our Coffee Art® was featured on YumSugar recently:
The bf (we're going to call him Jimmy from now on, okay? I really hate that phrase bf) is really into coffee. As in, we got rid of our microwave counter space in order to make room for the coffee pot, espresso machine, grinder and all the other bits of coffee paraphernalia. So when I found this link, I immediately had to forward it to him. For several years, Duluth based artists Andy and Angel Saur have been creating all of their works of art with coffee.

To achieve the different gradients, the artists brew their own thick coffee and dilute as needed. I personally think the results look rich and inviting, like sepia toned paintings. And somehow even their rendition of George Costanza mananges to capture a nostalgic feeling. But don't take my word on it, decide for yourself by checking out their coffee art gallery.

We are so happy to have received several inches of snow the past few days. Our neighborhood has become a winter wonderland. We have decorated our home with lights and ice lanterns for the season. The candles flicker and the glow of the light dances across the snow.

Yesterday, Duluth was hit with a wonderful snow storm. This morning we woke up to shovel out. Many of our neighbors have snow blowers. You could hear them throughout the morning clearing walkways. This reminds us of our painting entitled, "Snow Blower Symphony."
Besides our Coffee Art®, we are creating other art and involved in other activities. On this page you will find out more about our inspiration and other ways of creating art.
