Manca Qualcosa

In Texas Hold Em - AA' (or a pair of Aces) are the strongest and most beautiful starting hand in the entire game.

There are many, many more factors than just your starting hand to take into consideration in which you've been dealt.
Position, Situation, and Surroundings among many other things come into play - Similarly to life.

Sometimes, no matter how well you play them - Or how ahead they should or could be in the hand
Fate, knowledge and previous experiences means the right move, and the only move in that particular moment in time is to just them go...

'The Thief' - Part 1.

Stealing an Original idea by Olimpia Zagnoli of an image of a Thief stealing a painting.
- Adjusting it accordingly, and turning the image and concept into reality**  photo t22_zps93b4e690.jpg

The Original image idea below was stolen from an Italian Artist named Olimpia Zagnoli.

After seeing the original design and deciding to 'Steal' the idea of the image of a Thief stealing the picture
(much to my own amusement and visual pleasures)

Beginning by changing the original Red/Black/White colour scheme with a Purple/Black/White one.
Looking at the text throughout the image - The bottom part reminded me of the old famous saying
'The Quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.'

This then corresponded in the replacement of the faceless original figure with the wise, smart and so he thought 'Quick brown fox'
(Subtlety depicting similarities from the original 'Fantastic Mr Fox')

Once the words had been taken into account and turned into the subject matter -
Deciding to turn the text into his signature 'polka dots.'
Although to me these aren't just Dots.

Many Moons ago - Gypsies used to equally space and uniform the same sized dots repeatedly to actually represent the Moon.
Something that was quite special and important to them.
So in this case 27 + 1 Moons were hand-painted to represent age. One for each year plus the one he was currently living in...

Once the painting was completed he contacted Olimpia Zagnoli with the above information - And received no Reply.

Further On Up The Road

'Where the road is dark and the seed is sowed
Where the gun is cocked and the bullet's cold
Where the miles are marked in the blood and gold
I'll meet you further on up the road...' ♬
