Year of Beer Paintings – Day 166

The Hefewiezen by King Street Brewing Company here in Anchorage, Alaska is a spot on Hefe! Great job, boys!  Your beer is rocking the house!  I have drank beers from around the world, and you nailed a great Bavarian-style Hefeweizen!  I love your brewery, and think you are a great asset to our community.  I mailed a King Street IPA to a friend in Philly and he tasted it along with other noteworthy IPAs and said he liked it very much!

The banana yeast flavor and slight Bavarian-style hops are the perfect combination to make for a delicious summer Hefeweizen.  This beer is hazy and yellow, but you can’t see that when it’s in the can.  Also, a great way to transport this precious product, in the can!  Thank you King Street Brewing for making such a delicious brew!

Cheers to King Street Brewing — not only King of the perfect IPA, but King of the Hefe as well!

Aug 12, 2009 Plein Air Session @ Jenny Hand’s Painting Lesson

I recently went out on assignment as an oil painting teacher for private lessons.  As I was approaching the residence of my group of painters I had the idea that it would be very nice to paint outside.  My first thought was to open the garage door, but on further inspection I was led to the backyard which was directly on Jewel Lake.  We had the most amazing time getting sloppy with oil paint in the backyard.  I dropped this painting off of the dashboard on a driving frenzy to pick-up house paint from my parent’s house.  Fortunately the only damage is a little dirt in the sky.
