First Catch. Coffee, charcoal & pastel on Canvas, 36×24, By Bethany Klein. Bethany has always had a passion for art & has had a special interest in animals & nature. Her art allows herself to express her love for God’s creation. In the past few years, she has evolved from realism to surrealism & 12 years ago, while visiting the Fort Worth Main Street Art Festival, she became inspired by coffee art! Her coffee art consists of acid free black coffee as the main ingredient, brewing the coffee with baking soda to neutralize the acidity. She mixes charcoal powder into the coffee creating blacks & raw sienna pastel to achieve oranges or reds.
