The Jolly Sommelier

8 X 10"
Oil on deep cradled hardboard
     On our way to Hilton Head, my friends and I stayed over at a Bed & Breakfast in Tennessee.  At our hostess's suggestion, we went to a nice restaurant where we were beautifully served by this gentleman, with a radiant smile and a nice table wine.  He was a portly fella with delicate hands and I knew I had to paint him. 


  1. He is wonderful! He does look jolly! I love the hands and the wine glass...very nice job!

  2. Thanks Maria, Linda, and Jennifer! I really enjoyed this!

  3. Just had to smile back when I saw this! Great job on the expression and those gentle hands.

  4. I love this guy. His smile is definitely infectious! Beautiful wine glass, bottle and hands. I like the whole thing. It's great!

  5. Hi Terri! I would love to purchase this piece. Drop me an email,
