Rocks Beat Paper

Oil on panel
10 x 8 inches

My painting Rock Beats Paper portrays a different outlook on a familiar game of chance, Rock-Paper-Scissors. During my childhood and still today, I disagree with the rule "paper covers rock" because as a mason's son, I always believed rock to be the strongest element. Therefore, this is my perception of rock banding together to beat the odds and liberate themselves from the rules of the game.
