white wine and tails...

by Will Bullas

white wine and tails... is the latest offering from Will Bullas’s “2007 Food and Wine” series. The successful series is a playful tribute to the world of fine wine and the characters that inhabit it and has included such favorites as crabernet....

Bullas was inspired to paint white wine and tails... while watching Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers waxing eloquent on the subject of “white tie and tails.” Eager to include his favorite food in a painting, Will and his wife “got some lobsters and posed one of them in the studio.” Was it hard to paint a lobster? “He was easy to work with,” says Will of his lobster model. “And then,” recalls Bullas’s wife Claudia, “we ate him.”

The smirk of this tipsy crustacean, forever preserved, makes white wine and tails... a delightful addition to any wine cellar, kitchen, or office.

Arrogance

by Simon Combes

“I enjoy relating animals to human equivalents,” said artist Simon Combes. “I always think of cheetahs, for example, as very serious animals. A lion may grin and a leopard may leer or sneer but a cheetah would only frown. A cheetah might be a dedicated professional athlete whereas a lion would be an amateur rugby player.”

Simultaneously relaxed and vigilant, the cheetah at the center of Arrogance seems very somber indeed. This is, in part, attributable to the cheetah’s “tear marks,” black markings that run from the cheetah’s eyes to its mouth. The markings help block sunlight, as well as aid in hunting and seeing over long distances. They also make the cheetah appear incurably grave.

Simon Combes’ gorgeous rendering of one of nature’s fastest animals at rest was created as part of his “Great Cats of the World” series. Arrogance is a captivating portrait that will become the focal point of any room.
