For the first time I get to write a post for Thirsty Thursday! This weekend is Scott’s 20th high school reunion, for West High School’s class of 1998! So, I told him not to worry about painting a new beer painting for this week’s release, but to spend as much time as possible with his friends who came to Anchorage for the reunion festivities. We all know that our connections with our friends and family are the most important things in life.
So I decided to feature a painting that had not been posted on this blog. I actually provided the inspiration for this piece. My friend and I hiked Flattop Mountain one day, and I always bring a beer on all my hikes to drink on the summit. This time I brought Pleasure Town IPA by Midnight Sun Brewing Co. As we were sipping the brew and enjoying the view, a paraglider took off right in front of us. So I parked my beer, and took a photo of him, the view from the mountain, and the beer. I showed the picture to Scott, and he decided to turn it into a painting. The name of it is High on Pleasure Town.
I hope you all had a fun and safe 4th of July celebration! Next week Scott will be back with a brand new Thirsty Thursday beer painting for you.
