24″ x 36″ Acrylic On Canvas
by Hollis Dorian

You are all alone at a bar in a Reno casino, down to your last fifty dollars and you look beside you. There is a man who is not gambling. Smoking, yes. Drinking, okay. But he never puts his money, if he even has any, in the slot. He is the man who didn’t like to gamble.
