Up a creek without a PBR

Well, I'll just go ahead and cut to the chase here and say my piece wasn't selected as a winner. But sure was FUN to create!!!

Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer has been hosting a "Draw Responsibly" contest of sorts since 2007.  I accidentally found out about this art contest and thought to myself, "now THAT would be fun to enter!" is the result of side one and side two of "Up a Creek Without a....PBR".

I've been waiting to paint something cool on this fab little mini-canoe paddle I've been toting around. I love canoeing, kayaking and whitewater somehow having a mini-paddle resonated as no less than awesome to me. What BETTER thing to use as a canvas and to paint a coolio "ode to PBR" on said wooden-paddle?

I submitted this image to but for whatever reason it wasn't (at least as far as I've seen) added to the image gallery on their site? Anyhow, I would have been in the running for a chance to win $1893 in cash, schwag and fame! Regardless the outcome...I've got a really fun piece of original PBR art. And fyi, at present this piece of art isn't for sale. It's just too cool to sell at the moment.

Booyah, Pabst Blue Ribbon.  Thank you for the opportunity!
