Trappist Rochefort 10

Trappist Rochefort 10 beer painting art

Oil on Canvas

What can we say about Rochefort 10? It is one of the best beers in the world, that also happens to be available just about everywhere. 

So, why an oil painting of Rochefort 10? This is a question that we should have answered months ago. While these larger-than-life oil paintings approach photorealism, we feel that they possess a physicality that a photo simply does not. The transparent, permeable layers of color work in conjunction with impermeable, visceral strokes of paint to create a light-reactive, dimensional surface. 

Being full-time artists, we live a fairly spartan lifestyle. Beer is our luxury. We do not have a furnished bar, a beer cellar that isn't a closet, or a living room to hang the very artwork we do. Basically, we make the beer art we would like to have on our imaginary walls.
