Todays Funky Art Favorite: Happy Space

Happy Space is an intriguing blend of shapes and colors reminiscent of a musical composition in its style and its flowing manner. Colorful yet sedate, I find the Happy Space design to be harmonious and restful while also alive with vibrant movement and playfulness.

A Bridgeport Kingpin Double Red Ale from Bridgeport Brewing Co. in Portland, Oregon was used in the creation of this painting.

Order your limited edition print now and enjoy your Happy Space for years to come! All you need to do is go to the Happy Space image under the Modern and Abstract drop down category under Shop Our Art, click on the image and follow the prompts through checkout!

Celebrate World Turtle Day

Sacred Honu Green Sea Turtle EndangeredFounded in 2000, World Turtle Day encourages us to honor the world of turtles and tortoises. Sea turtles have existed even before dinosaurs-for over 100 million years but now they need our help to protect them.!

There are 7 different species of sea turtles, all of which are either endangered or threatened. The most common species is the green sea turtle (named for the color of its fat) which is actually dark brown in color and can weigh up to 440 pounds.

One of the charities designated by BeerColors™ is the World Turtle Trust which assists turtle conservation projects around the world. Since 1990, the primary ways in which the Trust has helped to save turtles has been by making educational films, protecting breeding sites from development and working to prevent fibropapilloma, a disease fatal to turtles. For more information, you can find the history and current projects coordinated by the dedicated World Turtle Trust volunteers at http://www.worldturtletrust.com.

The Green Sea Turtle (shown above), also called the Sacred Honu in Hawaii, was painted with a very good  Bridgeport Hop Czar from Bridgeport Brewing Co. and is available for purchase under the Endangered Species and More section of the drop down menu under Shop Our Art. Just click on the Sacred Honu image and follow the prompts.

Celebrate: Today is Seniors Day!

beer_art3 Senior Citizens Day is an opportunity to acknowledge the long-term contribution and dedication of our seniors.

With people living and working longer, it’s increasingly important that we recognize the importance of supporting senior citizens. One way to recognize seniors is to give something back to older people.

BeerColors™ acknowledges and honors seniors by volunteering time co-facilitating an art class for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients through the Memories in the Making® program sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association. It is a highly rewarding program that returns immeasurable joy disproportionate to the amount of time provided. We urge you to find a way to honor seniors that is meaningful to them and to you.

Geeser Brothers Band (shown above) was painted with a good tasting Bridgeport Dark Rain beer from Bridgeport Brewing Co. Prices for Geeser Brothers Band start at $70.

Bicknell’s Thrush: An Endangered Bird

Bicknell's ThrushRarest of all North America breeding thrushes, the Bicknell’s Thrush is classified as vulnerable in the endangered species continuum. Their song has been described as very flute-like in tone. Quite the travelers, Bicknell’s Thrushes always spend their winters vacationing in the Greater Antilles.

A great tasting Bridgeport Kingpin Double Red Ale from Bridgeport Brewing Co. and an excellent Henry Weinhard’s Private Reserve from Blitz-Weinhard Co. were used in the painting of Bicknell’s Thrush (a portion of which is shown above). Prices for Bicknell’s Thrush begin at $70. Enjoy your print now!

Today is World Golf Day

Golfing GeeserFORE! Today is World Golf Day as declared by the Professional Golfer’s Association (www.pga.com). Replace your divots, don’t hit out of turn, don’t vocally disturb your mates and be courteous to others today as you observe this prestigious celebration!

While golfing may not save the world, it is a wholesome activity that has provided a good deal of fun, camaraderie and relaxation for many people. Former President Eisenhower was sometimes called the ‘golfing President’ as he spent much of his time on the links, often with foreign and domestic leaders.

Some good golfing movies have been made but my favorite still remains Caddyshack. The Golfing Gesser is modeled after Rodney Dangerfield’s golf character in that movie. Golfing Geeser was lovingly painted with a very good Bridgeport Dark Rain from Bridgeport Brewing Company (Portland, Oregon). Prices start at $70.

More Prints Added!

dahlias HiDefWe have just added 6 new prints to this site, including Dahlias Enjoying the Sun pictured at the left. Most of these new prints were painted with beer, as was Dahlias (Bridgeport Kingpin Double Red Ale), but one (Spirals) was painted with a 2009 Pinot Noir from St. Josef’s Winery. Each comes in multiple sizes. Prices begin at $70 for an unframed gicle’e print on excellent archival quality paper.

All of our fun new new prints (with the exception of Terrific Toucan) can be found under the Modern/Abstract dropdown in our Shop our Art section. Terrific Toucan is located in the Playful Bird section. Since Spirals was painted with wine, it also appears in the WineDesigns™ dropdown section.

We now have nearly 150 lively, fun loving, fanciful and funky prints to enjoy. All are available for your purchase through Pay Pal or using major credit cards. If you want a custom size or have another request (such as a press-on print), just ask us through the Contact section and we will respond.

We hope you enjoy these new additions as well as the rest of our art. We hope you choose to add some of our prints to your office or home decor or to give as presents to your friends and family.

Herons and Dancing Gerbils

Herons are beautiful waterbirds with cute crest feathers that resemble hair. The most famous is the Great Blue Heron. I painted an image of this heron while it was in flight using Bridgeport IPA (Bridgeport Brewing Co.) as the beer of choice. I also painted a Multi-colored Heron with Belgo, a Belgian style IPA from New Belgium Brewing Co. Not only were both beers tasty, I am proud to have added both herons to this website.

Also added to this site were the Dancing Gerbils. Gerbils are known to stomp their rear feet so I painted a gerbil family enjoying the latest dance rage, Gangnam style. Belgo was used in this beer-painting as well. I hope you enjoy these additions as well as enjoying these beers.
