Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #16, April 16, 2015

Super Mario Brothers and beer sounds like a solid Friday night plan to me.  In 1985 Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Shizuka produced the fourth best-selling video game of all time with 40 million copies sold.  Although Tetris, Wii Sports and Grand Theft Auto have all sold more copies, I think that Super Mario Bros is more iconic.  I grew up playing this game, and it has been one of my favorites since I bought my first Nintendo with my paper route money.  One thing to keep in mind is there is a direct correlation between the amount of beer consumed and the quality of gaming performance.  This painting shows Mario about to hit the most amazing power up — a giant beer, so I call this piece Super Power Up.

The original oil painting sold.  You can purchase limited-edition prints, or commission an original at my Etsy shop.
