Playing Cards

April 14th, 2014

Last week I set myself the challenge of reinterpreting the faces on playing cards using my Over the Under-Schmeerings style. I started with a King…

Then I painted a Queen…

Lady of Hearts

…and then, to finish up the family, I painted a Jack.

Knave of Spade

My wife and daughter were both unsure of where I was going with this at first… until I had a couple completed. Now they can see what I’m up to. My daughter mentioned that she prefers seeing them together as a set as opposed to individually. So, I arranged them in order of ascending rank just for her.

Suddenly, a story started to unfold before me. I think the King had better pay more attention to his lady. Hopefully, it’s just harmless flirtation, but Jack better be careful…

Dysfunctional Family of Cards

Dysfunctional Family?

This was a fun detour. Who knows? I may revisit soon…

Happy Creating!
