Alus, mixed media on board, 12”x16”

Alus, it’s the Lithuanian word for beer.  European friends have been sending me beer labels from places like Luxemburg, Switzerland and of course Lithuania.  This is a latest in a series of beer-themed art and it’s dedicated to all of us with the habit of drinking beer and then peeling labels off of the empty beer bottles.  Well, if you cut those labels up and use the shiny pits in particular, you end up with something like this.

Alus will be shown in my upcoming exhibit at San Francisco’s City Beer in October.
