A Waiter Making Change   9x12  Oils on canvas panel

This subject is suggested by another of Jilly Bennett's posts in her wonderful blog Naturally I can't find her post right now, but I'll make a link here when I find it.  You'd think that by now I would know to make notes! But that requires a brain and I'm working on that.

UPDATE: 10/21/2010 - I couldn't find the reference page in Jilly's Menton Daily Photo blog because it's in her Monte Carlo Daily Photo blog!  DUHHHHHH!  Paying attention isn't one of my strong points, obviously!

I made a few changes from Jilly's photo but it's substantially what you see is what you get! :-)

I'm wondering if the waiter is making change for his customer taking his time hoping for a tip.  In Jilly's photo he appears to be perspiring quite a bit - probably working very hard.  I worked a few summers in retail when I was a teenager and vowed then to never again be on the cash register side of a counter NO WAY, NO HOW!  I never have and I appreciate very much those folks that can do it. Especially waiters and the like.


  1. It is amazing, he looks so alike in your portrait. I could name him "scientist" if not for the context))

  2. Maybe he IS a scientist and the "down" economy has forced him to serve customers in a sidewalk bistro? :-)
