The light of the full moon, fire and small lamps snatched from the darkness changed excitement face. Emotions have changed with incredible speed. During the evening it has been tried 4 kinds of games, but the passions do not cease. So I visualized the first images. After the first picture (Poker) I decided research nature of gaming and gambling, as well as come up with a format paintings. Rhythm, color and graphic techniques varied from plot to plot and did not depend on the rules of the selected game, I allowed myself to play all of this, because not fond of any one type of game. Besides playing shifters.(Can be watched from any side)” commets Natalia.
