Beer Paint

Instead of guzzling pitchers of beer, artist Karen
Eland makes pictures out of beer. The
38-year-old painter has turned pints into
portraits of everyone from Justin Bieber and
Lady Gaga to President Obama.

Eland uses about a pint of brew per painting,
layering the suds on canvas as if they were
watercolors. "It's a little harder than watercolor
paintings because the beer is stickier than paint,
and also comes off easily if you spill water,"
said Eland, adding that she prefers using lager to
paint.  She said the paintings take several days to
finish, depending on the amount of detail she
painstakingly includes.  

The only problem is she doesn't always have
enough beer to toast the completion of a work.
"Usually I taste a little of the brew before
starting to paint, so there isn't always
much left," Eland said.
You don't say.....
