This 24 x 30 oil painting will be in the Mountain Oyster Art Show, in Tucson November 22.
Many years ago I found an antique lamp in Montana that has been the inspiration for several paintings. It probably lit up some Nineteenth Century saloon or pool hall. Imagining the characters that played high stakes poker under this lamp was a lot of fun. My models were friends and relatives. Spud Jones on the left, Jim Dalton on the right with Craig Reay next to him. Brad and Cindy Hopkinson Welch are in the middle. That is me in the plaid shirt going “all in”.
