If you're going to go all in, better make sure you know how to win! This painting is a tribute to a game I much enjoy playing despite usually losing. As avid players know, it's a game as much about reading the players as the cards, which is why every hand of miniature cards (demonstrating winning hands) were placed and glued on individually and differently from one another. Not only did I aim to direct each winning hand to the next winning hand from left to right and back again but I also selectively chose which cards went to what hands. Of the full mini deck, only 2 cards were excluded from the painting face but are glued to the back for the owners reference and ability to spot a card counter. The Aces are on display as the highest cards in the deck, aged with copper metallic paint and outlined with metallic gold.
Avant-garde. Analyst. Artist. Naturist Kid Carpenter turned teen labor machine, doing all kinds of things on a core quest, to test, the possibilities of my capabilities long before I ever realize and hypothesized the drive to be evolution. The need to evolve. Resolve of adulthood has shown I've grown the most in my own reflection; taking direction from the simple value, always holding true, to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," the coo before the command, "Lead by example." Ample opportunity I didn't quite take until now, 2017, I'm coming back with a pow!
