This piece was commissioned in 2009 and completed in December after a long period of touch-ups and stagnation. 

The blue background of Bud Light caps is a brilliant contrast to the myriad yellow, red, and orange caps that compose the sun.  The sun was originally more orange and red, but was changed to more yellows (especially around the edges, or flames) before completion.

This piece is constructed atop a 42 inch diameter table top, and trimmed with 1.5 inch aluminum trim.  More than 1000 Bottle caps were used to create this piece.
