Todays Funky Favorite Art: Summer Storm

Today’s funky favorite from BeerColors™ art is Summer Storm (shown at left). Summer Storm is meant to convey a sense of happiness. Viewed as shown, it may look to you like a field with clouds and bolts of lightening, hence the name: “Summer Storm”. Upside down, you may see bamboo and a jungle floor. There is a strong element of intrigue when viewed on either side. Whatever you see, art (like love) is always in the eye and heart of the beholder.

Summer Storm was painted with a Full Sail LTD limited edition lager from Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon. It is available in two sizes. Summer Storm may be purchased by going to our Shop Our Art section, clicking on the Summer Storm image then following the prompts through checkout.

Artist Emile Nolde (1867-1956)

beercolors-summer-stormEmile Nolde was a German-born oil and watercolor expressionist painter known for his bold brushwork and use of strong colors, notably deep reds and golden yellows. Mr. Nolde began his art career at age 31 and was very productive as an artist. During his lifetime, despite having over 1,600 of his paintings removed from museums and destroyed by the Hitler regime, Mr. Nolde is credited with 231 etchings, 197 woodcuts (including “The Prophet” in 1917) and 83 lithographs in addition to his many oils and watercolors.

Mr. Nolde has his work displayed in numerous museums and collections, including famous pieces of “The Burial” (1915), “Head with Pipe” (1907) and “Blumengarten” which auctioned for $3.2 million in a Sotheby’s of London 2112 auction.

All of our prints are Limited Edition Prints

beercolors-summer-stormYou may have noticed ALL of our BeerColors™ and WineDesign™ prints are sold Unframed and as Limited Edition Prints. This means that not only can you determine what type and color of matting and framing you feel best suits the print of your choice but there is a limited quantity of the print in the size you picked that will ever be placed on the market!

Limited Edition Prints are defined as an edition that is restricted to a specific number of copies. We have limited our Limited Edition Prints to no more than 250 to be issued in any specific size of each print. Thus, you will not likely be displaying a print that is owned by everyone on your block but will be unique to no more than 250 others in the world!

Summer Storm is one of our popular Limited Edition Prints. Summer Storm is offered in two sizes (9″x20″ and 14″x30″) and was painted with a great tasting Full Sail LTD limited edition lager from Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon.
