Dangerous Speculation

Oil on panel
10 x 8 inches

Through a mix of elements on a poker table, along with several more thought-provoking items, Dangerous Speculations examines apparent and potential risks a big gamble can present. The drinks before you sat down to win it all may have clouded your judgment. Stacks of chips that have been won can all be lost, don't forget, the house always wins. What if the problems are more involved? Perhaps there was a heated dispute over the biggest play of the night and you came out on the losing end. That pocket knife might not just be for show.
