“Decompresso”, Clint Reid, 2014
Pen, wood stain, and watercolour on birch panel
Whether it's hand-grinding beans for a pour over at home, or sitting down with my
sketch book and a double espresso at a coffee shop, the art of coffee is an art of decompression.
Outside pressure gets pressed back with the slow drop of a french press. Stress gets crossed out with
each pencil mark. With art and coffee, I try to focus on the process, and not worry about the result. It
just feels better that way.
