“It is much more rewarding to get to the top of the mountain and share your experience with others than to show up by yourself, exhausted.” ― -Shandel Slaten

After a three-day search, American Airlines located my missing luggage on Tuesday, and I found myself with a free afternoon in Guayaquil (Ecuador). A quick check with Miguel Rendon of EScoffee confirmed that he was in town, so I popped in to say, “Hi” and talk about coffee and art.

Little did we know that an impromptu art session was in our future! After a quick dash to the local art store, Miguel and I returned with acrylic paints, brushes and two painter’s pallets. Half an hour later, the entire staff took a Timeout for Art!

We started with an summary about the Timeout for Art concept...

A fun little coffee song seems appropriate:

Ok; “…let’s move on.. smell of coffee…”

The captive soon-to-be artists looked a bit unsure about their tasks!

Miguel and I drew the simple design and filled in the red color of the coffee cherry.

With Putumayo music in the background, the bashful painters quickly discovered their self confidence;  after fifteen or so minutes, I retreated to another room to begin work on a second project.

Miguel and I continued to peer over the work area to admire the progress!

Pretty strong work, don’t you agree?!

Taking a break from the almost-finished painting, they didn’t know that a second project was about to begin! (I often urge Miguel to refrain from drinking coffee before meetings, as his energy level stays at full throttle!)

Victor and Miguel checked on the progress.

True to Miguel’s vision,  the four-hour painting session transformed the foyer and office areas at the top of the stairs.
