Creative Cocktail For Thirsty Creative Soul

Once in a while we all feel  a little "Off "   on creativity.... Something just doesn't click.
I have used this amazing recipe  for a long time and  ..... well  see for yourself :)

!!!!! Very important   !!!!!  Use your favorite Mug  to fully enjoy this Creative Drink !

Brew some of you favorite coffee.  I usually use French Press, not because I am French  :), but  the flavor is the most preserved and the coffee is usually  nice and strong. 

Next, put 2 scoops of your favorite ice cream  right into Hot Coffee...

Ice Cream will start to melt and create this wonderful, soft, frosty foam on top - this is an absolute Delicacy!
No need to put any sugar or milk, as it's already in it :). You can drink it while it's still warm, there is a really nice contrast between hot coffee and  melting ice cream   ..... or   throw in a few ice cubes to get it really cold.
Enjoy,  Create and have Fun! 
Cheers !  :)

This was a great show !

Some of the Artists I discovered:

Kevin Lahvic ..... filled with messages and symbols, his art will make you stay and wonder and absorb the wonderful energy....

 James Monroe  ... shows nature in it's beauty through a lense of simplicity and warmth - his paintings are so soulfull and close to heart. 

Joseph Sikora  filled with movement, his paintings are so lively, energy is bursting through them... his style reminds me of impressionism but more mordern and urban...

  Marketa Sivek   - color intensity is so amazing you can almost feel it on your skin.  It is an amazing feeling to be surounded  by her paintings

many more  artists were there and the energy was just amazing

2nd Annual Fall smARTshow!"3 DAYS, 150 ARTISTS, 1 PLACE TO BE.
