"One, Two, Three" 8" by 8" acrylic on masonite, dominoes and dice

These are from a collection of old dominoes I have. I particularly like the old wooden kind to look at even though the white ones are what I grew up playing with. My parents have been part of a club that's been getting together over the course of thirty five years and playing a domino game called "Forty Two." It is very common in Texas and is similar to bridge. My grandfather, a farmer, played regular dominoes at the cotton gin, when farming demands permitted.
