I love that painting. It conveys something not usually seen in poker history. I write about poker. I just wrote a piece entitled Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Joe Ely, and the Cotton Club. You can find it easy searching those three names. Thanks for the painting, which I will attempt to cut and paste for folks all over Texas.

Hi Johnny. I'm not a poker player myself. This image of old friends quietly playing at someone's private home is very much my idea of the game, I've never been around professional players, I don't know that world. I'm glad to hear things are working out so well for you! Good luck with your career.
