Work Begins

This painting is 4 feet high, 5 feet wide.  In the cupping room,  there was a map of the world on the wall which we took down for a little geography lesson (why Kenyan coffee is different than Ethopian coffee).   The wall behind Steve is pretty dark, so if I paint in the map, it's not going to be much more than a contrast of continents to oceans.  At this point, I just want to be sure I like the way the elements of the scene work together.  I've moved a few things around and I've curved the counter (the way my eye, not a camera, saw it when I was there.  I may play around with that some more.
