One of my best friends invited me to join her in Las Vegas. Yes please!!!! I have a ton of self control...which I knew I would have to activate visiting a place like Vegas. I am an artist living on a tight budget, as do many people. It's all too easy to spend money you don't have in Vegas... (swipe it!) Needless to say I controlled myself and actually broke even. I had a wonderful time exploring the strip, as well as the local neighborhoods of Vegas, and got inspired to create this piece. The brush strokes used in this painting are much looser and wilder than my usual style. The painting allowed me to let loose and have a lot of fun...just like Vegas did. "Jackpot" is one of my all time favorite paintings.
