Awesome October!

October has been very good to BeerColors™!

Ron Pomeroy, BeerColors™ artist, was chosen by the jury selection committee of the Clackamas County Arts Alliance to participate in the 2014 Artist Exhibit program (www. clackamasartsalliance.org ). This program features selected artists on its website and displays their art in public buildings . This selection is an honor which is greatly appreciated!

October also saw the celebration of BeerColors™ first year on the web. We appreciate how well our art and the Brushstrokes Blog have been received. In addition, the BeerColors™ facebook page has gained numerous followers, thanks entirely to the excellent work of Katie Schroepfer!

Artist Ron Pomeroy was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Canby Arts Association during October. He also performed a public beer-painting demonstration. Additionally, BeerColors™ is hopeful it can participate in ARTZ for Alzheimer’s (www.alz.org ) based upon initial discussions with that fine organization during October.

These October developments have happened within the context of continued exhibiting of BeerColors™ art at the excellent Wallflowers Gallery (www.wallflowersframinggallery.com) and at other venues. Modern and Abstract art were added to the website during October and the trademark for WineDesigns™ was granted for the wine-painting portion of BeerColors™. Rollout of initial limited edition WineDesigns™ prints  is expected to occur shortly after the first of the year.

All in all, BeerColors™ had an awesome October!

How Does Beer Effect the Painting?

631 snack web1000A common question asked of this artist is: How does beer effect the painting? There are actually several influences. FIRST, the darker the beer the more pigment, which tends to darken the painting very slightly versus using water as a medium. SECOND, due to the carbonation in the beer, bubbles often develop, particularly if the paint and beer are stirred together vigorously. An example is the painting “Snack (at left) . Often I leave the bubbles in a painting as evidence that it was painted with beer. After all, this is a signature effect that makes all BeerColors paintings a conversation piece since there are only a handful of professional artists in the world who paint with beer.

ANOTHER effect of painting with beer is that it off-gases a bit. The alcohol needs to evaporate so one should not frame a beer-painting until a few days after it has been completed. FINALLY, painting with beer is novel, fun and should be done with joy. After all, drinking beer is normally more tasty than drinking water! The mere process of using an ingredient that is unusual and sparks interest brings additional spark to the creative process and helps make the finished product a conversation piece whether hung at home or displayed at your workplace.
