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.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," the coo before the command, "Lead by example." Remmy didn't always believe in such things, couldn't until she first accepted the truth and intelligence they bestowed. Even so, it took years to turn the knowledge into practical and personal application. In 2017 Remmy started shifting her creative interest toward the Stream of Consciousness and sharing of information, thoughts, and concepts. From cabinet maker to customer service rep, toll collector to call center quality specialist and trainer, home remodeler to paint night art instructor, and a variety of odd jobs in between. Broken bones to 3rd degree burns, self-loathing to helping others, hating the world to leading with love, caring only for herself to caring for her ailing Grandparents... Remmy has a lot of life insights to share; and the care/passion to make every RA artwork worth owning.
