“I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro’s hood…”
—from Wishlist by Pearl Jam
Introducing Hop In, an original painting commissioned by Great Bay—Florida’s largest distributor of Anheuser-Busch products—for their esteemed corporate art collection. I’m honored for my piece to join their stellar roster of Tampa Bay artists. It’s truly one for the beer lover—an homage to all the warm feelings and memories associated with the beloved golden brew. Its title is a play on the word “hops”, while the pattern in the piece is derived from the shape of the leaves in the hops bud, beer’s key ingredient.
this bud’s for you
Although the original Hop In painting is SOLD, Fine Art Prints are NOW AVAILABLE in both Gallery-Wrapped Canvas as well as Archival Paper with Framing Option >> HERE.
Feel free to forward and share my news with friends and fellow art (and beer) lovers.
Thanks for your support, and hope to see you around the art scene!
That first sip of beer.
Jogs the memory.
Floods the mind with nostalgia.
Of good times, summertime friends.
Warm nights, game of pool, barbeque.
Rock ‘n roll, hot rods, hangouts.
Sunset on the water, and a full moon rising.
Flash before your eyes in an instant.
Hear the music, feel the heat, enjoy the laughter.
Echoes of the past always return,
sparkling, shimmering, rising up,
with that first sip of beer.
So, Hop In. Stay awhile. —MM
