Fun with Art: Beer Paintings
Not long ago, I came across the webpage of two artists from Bend, Oregon who had forcused their work on painting craft beer crown caps and bottles. To further market and display their work, a blog was created (simply named: Beer Paintings). At first I thought the beer-centric pieces might just a nice hook to draw craft beer people in, but the more I (virtually) thumbed through their pages, the more I was impressed with their focus and attention to detail. Well done guys.
I have placed a few examples below that exemplify Cara and Louie's style. But there is much more than what I can display. At the bottom, I have placed a list of links that will take you to a few more of my favorites from the Beer Paintings collection. Enjoy...

Lastly, if you're curious about how paintings like these come out, check out some of the behind-the-scenes photos of a work in progress. And the artists love commisions - shoot them an email if your interested.
