Games


Games, 12 x 24, oil on cradled board

One of my not-so-secret desires/loves/addictions is vintage toys. That includes games. I've been wanting to include a game in a trompe l'oeil painting for a long time but have been pondering on the 'right' composition.

I finally decided on stacked boxes. I like the geometrical design of rectangles and squares stacked on top of each other with a few little 'surprises' thrown in.

Of course, these pre-owned games have been played with over the years and show the knocks and bruises of life.

And I love all the color!
