Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #82, July 21, 2016, Rainier BEAR

Raaaaain-Niiiier-Beeeaaar!

This week’s Thirsty Thursday beer painting was inspired by this breaking news story: Bear Downs 36 Beers, Passes Out at Campground

The funny thing is that he had options of Rainier or Busch, and the discerning palate of this thirsty bear chose the Rainier.  After sampling one Busch beer he went back for more of the Yakima hops and clean glacial water of the great Washington brew known as Rainier beer!  I’ve painted Rainier before, and when I read this story I knew it would make a great painting.  Talk about being thirsty!  But don’t be like this animal and drink yourself into a stupor.  Enjoy the brews in small doses, so you don’t get trapped by the local constabulary like this fuzzy guy.  I think I would have gone for some craft beer, but hey, when you’re camping, a good cold one right out of the chilly bin sometimes can’t be beat!

Cheers to the Rainier BEAR!  I hope he doesn’t make a habit out of this!

The original oil painting, and 52 limited-edition prints are for sale at my Etsy shop RealArtIsBetter.
