Today’s Featured Funky Art: Bird Playing Volleyball

Today’s Featured Funky Art is: Bird Playing Volleyball !

Many of our BeerColors™ paintings involve birds because they are intriguing and because they are a vital part of our environment and need protection. This colorful painting of Bird Playing Volleyball combined our enjoyment of birds, the influence of Karel Appel’s works and an innate sense of the ridiculous. Allowing imagination of what a playful bird would do for recreation given human choices resulted in this portrayal of an athletic bird enjoying a game of volleyball.

Bird Playing Volleyball (shown above) was painted with a great Deschutes River Ale from Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon. and can be purchased by going to the Shop Our Art section of this website, clicking on the Modern and Abstract category then clicking on the Bird Playing Volleyball image and then following the prompts through checkout.
