Beer makes me smart...Beer, me make art. After trying to make little "Golden Child" men out of Bud Lite cans Saturday, I checked the web for other beer inspired artforms. The results are range from the folky-Beer Label art to cozy beer bottle homes and dangerous beer can guns. Even cash can be made...for hilarious rent woes... to Big $$$ as with David Hockney's Pearl Blossom Highway currently at the Getty Museum. Anyone else inspired by beer?

Pearblossom Highway actually. It is a road up north of here near the larger city of Palmdale.

Visionary artist Tom Marioni, whose master-work is called The Act of Drinking Beer with Friends is the Highest Form of Art.

The main thing beer inspires in me is to...have another beer.
