The first painting I did in the playing card series and perhaps my favorite. The mirror image was done by hand it was difficult to get it to match and after I was done I said never again. I have gone on and done six more cards requiring the same treatment. I never really get tired of them they are so much fun ! The inspiration for the Queen was Debbie Harry lead singer for Blondie. This was taken from a photo when she worked at Max's Kansas City , just before Blondie hit it big .
