I painted this piece after watching an intense hand of poker played by a group of cowboys. This painting screams “Texas” Poker, especially with the cactus blown into the stem of the martini glass. All of the olives wear Cowboy Boots or Cowboy Hats and two are lifting up the cards revealing the Ace of Spades and the Ace of Hearts, also known as Pocket Rockets. They know it is time, so the olive in the back lassos the chips to go “All In”!!!
