Pike Place Brewery – “Hot Dog”December 24 prompt: “hot dog” Pike Brewing art by Cheryl Leo Gwin and Charles Finkel

Hanging in Pike  Brewing Company (http://www.pikebrewing.com/  )

.

Cheryl Leo Gwin and Charles Finkel of Pike Breweries (and wineries)
have long been know for their art. 
Large or  small – Washington State has about 160 craft breweries,
most of any  state – they commission some of the best art around. 
 Hanging in Pike  Brewing Company (http://www.pikebrewing.com/  )
is this fascinating poster for the brewery. 
Designed by Charles  Finkel and Cheryl Leo Gwin
and painted in enamel by Cheryl Leo Gwin, 
Chris and I discovered it while waiting  for our table in a corner of the bar. 
I fell in love with it, and the  creators were kind enough to let us use it for a prompt. 
.
Embodying  themes drawn from beer, Seattle, and of course, sex,
and images of hot dogs, long legs, butterflies, suds, cats, goats and more,
it has it all. 
The prompt:What does the art say to you?  What do you see in it? 
What will your  tanka say about it?
