And the winner is...


Oil on panel, 8" x 10"
Good bartenders are good conversationalists. We had a great conversation with this guy about the Academy Awards, which were going to happen that night. Then he let me take his picture. What a guy.

Love the title! Love the work! At first I thought you were going to announce the winner of the untitled piece you did a few weeks ago! I was pleasantly surprised.

Really fantastic job capturing the lowlight of a bar without it getting too dark. I really love how the highlights hit the bartenders shirt.

Great little painting. You made the bar look so welcoming and the bartender seem like the perfect guy to be pouring its drinks.
