From the Artist:

I created this acrylic on canvas series specifically for Blue Stallion Brewing for the “Local ARyist of the Month” spotlight. When I found out that my work was going to be here, I immediately began thinking about color in Sepia.

There is something extremely authentic about beer and the art of brewing.

Beer is something that feels like home to most of us.
It has a history with us;
it’s a comfort as well as a luxury.
It’s timeless.
When fads have come and gone, beer has sustained it’s position.
It is steadfast and true.
It’s like that old friend that knows you, even after years have passed.

I want to honor the tradition of local brewing through subject matter that felt Genuine, Real and a part of our past. So I decided to paint a “Prohibition/Repeal Day” themed series and it was a great experience.

Sepia appears as brown and white, but if you look closely you can find blues, dark purples, creams, yellows and hints of orange in this unique color mix.

I hope you enjoy viewing ot as much as I did creating it. Cheers!
