"white wine and tails..." is the latest offering from Will Bullas’s “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.




Will Bullas
Born in Ohio and raised in the Southwest, Will Bullas enrolled at Arizona State University and was majoring in fine arts with a minor in dramatic arts when he was drafted. In Vietnam, his first professional pieces were pencil portraits of fellow soldiers, which were sent to loved ones back home. Returning from military duty, he enrolled in the Brooks Institute of Fine Art in Santa Barbara, California and graduated with a degree in oil painting. With the encouragement of his wife, Claudia, he then quit his printing press job— reproducing the work of other artists—and concentrated on his own art. That was the beginning of a yearlong voyage across the Midwest and Southwest, where Bullas sold his work to many appreciative art lovers. The couple settled in Carmel, California, where Will's exclusive relationship with galleries resulted in a growing group of dedicated, enthusiastic collectors. Bullas' work now graces a wide range of popular products, including high fashion t-shirts, note cards, coffee mugs and even 100% silk neckwear. His books, a fool and his bunny... and a fool moon... have been published to acclaim with an introductions by inveterate fans Clint Eastwood and Doris Day. His vision has taken on further dimension as works of art in porcelain from the Greenwich Workshop® Collection. Will is illustrating his first book for young people titled, A is for ART, to be released in the fall of 2006 by Sleeping Bear Press. Will's awards include the Strathmore Award at the 1981 Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition, the William G. Morrison Award from the Adirondacks Exhibition of American Watercolors, the First Place Award at the 1990 Signature Membership Exhibition of the National Watercolor Society and the California Watercolor Association's 1997 Silver Medal. He is a proud member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society and the Knickerbocker Artists of New York. In 2002, Will was awarded the prestigious Dagmar Tribble Memorial Award by the American Watercolor Society. Will continues to receive accolades not only for his original watercolors, but for graphic design in packaging and poster work. Will Bullas and his wife Claudia live and create in San Francisco. Claudia designs and maintains the WILLBULLAS.COM website.
