Todays Funky Art Favorite: Beach Party

Beach Party is a funky abstract painting intended to reflect the colorful nature, joy and excitement of a summer day at the beach. In particular, Beach Party is painted from the vantage point of a small child or pet watching all of the activity and fun occurring on a great sunny day at the beach with friends and family! Beach Party is an every day reminder that joy is a state-of-mind!

Beach Party was painted with a Full Sail Amber Ale from Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon. You can order your Beach Party Limited Edition Print by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Modern and Abstract drop down category and then following the prompts after clicking on the Beach Party image!

 

Todays Funky Art Favorite: Funky Auras

Today’s BeerColors™ Funky Art Favorite is Funky Auras (shown at left). Funky Auras is the result of playfulness in allowing art to flow from inspiration rather than being created according to a strictly controlled mental image or plan. Funky Auras illustrates that the impact of individuals and other living things go well beyond that which we realize and can visualize with our usual senses.

Funky Auras was created using a Widmer Brothers Hefe from Widmer Brothers Brewing Co. in Portland, Oregon. You can buy Funky Auras by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Modern and Abstract drop down category and then on the Funky Auras image and following prompts through checkout. Enjoy your own limited edition Funky Auras giclee print!

Todays Funky Art Favorite: Arizona Sky

Today’s BeerColors™ Funky Art Favorite is Arizona Sky (shown at left). Arizona Sky is an abstract landscape intended to show open sky, vegetation and the sunny contours of the Southwest. Hopefully, Arizona Sky implies fun in the sun and an optimistic spirit. This print is intended to inspire hope and joy whenever it is viewed!

Arizona Sky was painted with a 2016 Summerfest Crisp Lager from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in Chico, California and also in Mill River, North Carolina. You can buy your Arizona Sky by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Modern and Abstract drop down category and then on the Arizona Sky image. Enjoy!

Todays Funky Art Favorite: Storm Over the Alps

Today’s BeerColors™ funky art favorite is Storm Over the Alps (shown at left) which can be hung and enjoyed from any angle. The softness yet vibrancy of the colors, particularly the pinks and blues reminds me of a windstorm in a mountain region, such as the Alps; hence the name.

This painting was influenced by many modern artists whose works I have enjoyed. My twist on the print involves the placement of the colors and, of course, the beer I used which was Bridgeport Witch Hunt from Bridgeport Brewing Company in Portland, Oregon.

You can buy your Storm Over the Alps limited edition print by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Modern and Abstract category then on the Storm Over the Alps image then following the prompts through checkout. Enjoy!!

Todays Favorite Funky Art: Garden of Ideas

Today’s favorite BeerColors™ funky art is Garden of Ideas (shown at left).

This colorful print can be enjoyed from multiple angles. It is a rather busy painting with many figures that, to me, represent ideas; hence the title Garden of Ideas. The figures can also be seen as cookies, donuts, or rolls if you are hungry or any number of other things (hungry or not) since the beauty of contemporary abstract art is that it allows the viewer to contemplate alternative meanings and provide their own favorite interpretation and personal viewpoint of the work.

Garden of Ideas was painted with a Trumer Pils from Trumer Brauerie in Berkeley, California. Garden of Ideas can be purchased by going to our Shop Our Art  section and the Modern and Abstract category, then clicking on the Garden of Ideas image and following the prompts through checkout! Enjoy!!

Todays Funky Art Favorite: Giraffe Playing Banjo

Today’s favorite funky BeerColors™ art is Giraffe Playing Banjo!

Some of the fun in modern painting comes from juxtaposing seemingly inconsistent subjects. Pairing a funky giraffe with a banjo is one such example. The whimsical idea of this painting was brought to life with a 2012 Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. While it is not a print which makes much sense upside down or sideways (unless the giraffe is viewed as a rock star type of performer), it is playful and makes me smile whenever I look at it. Hopefully, it tickles your funny bone as well.

You can buy Giraffe Playing Banjo (shown above) by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Modern and Abstract category and then on the Giraffe Playing Banjo image and following the prompts through checkout.

Todays Funky Art Favorite: Fresh Air

Today’s BeerColors™ funky art favorite is Fresh Air (shown at left).

Fresh Air reminds people of a mountainscape or of an island with birds and clouds. It was intended to be an optimistic painting with the use of a great deal of open, light space. As with most abstracts, Fresh Air has whatever meaning or inspiration you decide upon.

Fresh Air was painted with a Pendleton Blended Canadian Whiskey from Hood River Distilling in Hood River, Oregon. To buy your ‘breath’ of Fresh Air, just go to our Shop Our Art section, click on the Modern and Abstract drop down menu then on the Fresh Air image and proceed through checkout!

Todays Funky Art Favorite: Crazy Cubes

Today’s BeerColors™ funky art favorite is Crazy Cubes (shown at left), painted with a 2016 Summerfest Crisp Lager from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. located in both Chico, California and Mill River, North Carolina.

Crazy Cubes is a fun-loving, vibrant and lively abstract painting that should put a smile on your face with its upbeat tenor. Devoid of any meaning other than a happy spirit, it looks great as a print and also on light weight aluminum-as found in our Art on Metal category (Crazy Cubes (Metal) image).

You can buy your Crazy Cubes by going to the Shop Our Art section, clicking on either the Modern and Abstract category or the Art on Metal category then on the Crazy Cubes image and following the prompts through checkout! Enjoy the fun and eye-catching appeal of having Crazy Cubes in your personal environment.

 

 

Todays Funky Art Favorite: Black-capped Chickadee

Today’s BeerColors™ funky art favorite is the black-capped chickadee.

The playful chickadee is the state bird of Maine and Massachusetts and the provincial bird of New Brunswick, Canada. My Little Chickadee was a popular 1940 movie starring Mae West and W.C. Fields which may have served to endear the cute chickadee to the general public.

Our BeerColors™ Black-capped Chickadee (shown above) was painted with a Widmer Brothers Drifter Pale Ale from Widmer Brothers Brewing Co. in Portland, Oregon. You can buy our Black-capped Chickadee by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Endangered Species category, then on the Black-capped Chickadee image then following the prompts through checkout. Enjoy!
