Oil on gessoed board
Oct 19, 06
I got the idea for this from viewing the dailypainters blog, where all the paintings are displayed as thumbnails and look to me like an elabarate game of patience! I thought it would be funny to see one of the "cards" face down. I like the kind of abstract patterns on cards and persian carpets that uncannily resemble the patterns found in the Mandlebrot set. I understand that cards were originally used for foretelling the future rather than playing games. You never know when you're going to turn up trumps...
