The dealer, the distractor who distracts the “pigeon” while the dealer switches cards; a third conspirator who seems to always win and make it look so easy; A lookout at each end of the block watching for police. Can you spot players?
VISIONARY – PRIMITIVE PAINTINGS
Commissioned by Country Living Magazine to create an original piece of art from a photograph of a home resulted in a feature article. From there, readers sent photos and letters telling me about their house. My paintings always emphasized the parts of the house they loved the most. In some cases these paintings have become family heirlooms and symbols of remembrance to pass on to future generations.
