Just couldn’t wait to post this new painting I’m working on. Poker Boys, a painting of seven college buddies who get together every year for a weekend of poker, reminiscing, and merriment. One of the guys died while in college so everyone’s winnings get thrown into a pot and donated to a scholarship fund at their university, Cal Lutheran. This painting commemorates their twenty-fifth year together as friends and poker buddies. This painting has been created from a collection of old photos, snapshots and stories of there poker weekends. Lots of beer, burgers, darts, loose change and laughter. It’s been a fun project to paint. I’ll post the finished piece later this week.
