Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more amazing art. Now, let’s dive into the incredible world of Larry Carlson!

  • Rainbow Bubbles by Larry Carlson pigment print on metallic paper 

This is a jaw-droppingly beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. The entire piece glows with vibrant colors and aqueous patterns. The patterns are seemingly endless, and spiral down towards the center of the piece. The bubbles appears to have strange creatures living inside them. This is definitely one of Carlson’s most detailed works, and by far one of the most beautiful ones. Tell me what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

This is another fantastic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a neon display of multicolored fractals and swirly patterns.

  • 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.

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.
