Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some wonderful works. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • ERZEROTIK (KONIG) by Jonathan Meese 2017 Acrylic on canvas

This is a very unique piece by “German Contemporary Artist”, Jonathan Meese. It’s a sublime blend of pinkish hues and melting reds. It kind of has a memento mori feel, due to the skull-like figure near the center. I don’t often find pieces that really impact me other than Abstract ones, so this is a very nice trip into something more modern. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Women’s Intuition, After Aspen by James Rosenquist 1998 Oil on canvas

This is an incredibly awesome work by “American Pop Artist”, James Rosenquist. The manipulation of the piece is absolutely incredible, and very appealing to the eyes. The painting is covered in vibrant reds and comical spirals. I love that the red color is coming from the lipstick on the left. This is definitely on of the most astonishing Pop Art pieces I’ve ever seen. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Full Buck Moon by Larry Carlson

This is yet another great piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a nighttime work with a fantastic blend of Realism. The bottom of the painting has realistic rocks and the titular buck.

More Beers I Like (Every Other Thursday)

Hello fellow Cicerones! It’s Thursday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for some more beer recommendations from yours truly. Now, let’s begin!

  • Nukin Futs Imperial Peanut Butter Choc Cream Porter

Brewed by: Track 7 Brewing Co. California, United States 

Style: American Porter

ABV: 7.30%

Availability: Year-round

I came across this wonderful brew at the one of my favorite restaurants, Stout. It’s a wonderful place with fantastic burgers and beers. I found this drink on the menu in September, and decided to try it out. It’s incredibly creamy and has a very light aftertaste. Its taste reminds me of a peanut butter cup with a dash of alcohol. It’s very hard to find, but I highly recommend it.
