Description

Original painting – circa March 2015 – 40″x30″ (91cm x91cm) acrylic on canvas – hand painted sides.

Some think the birthplace of digital gaming was in the backroom of a Japanese computer store, when it may have started on the tarmac of a tennis court. And it may not have originated in the form of am electronics geek with pimples and a pocket protector; but a beautiful valley girl with a visor and a racket. Left and right, back and forth, one love, two love, score! Sliding a quarter down the slot is the 21st century equivalent of starting up a ball machine. What once was a training exercise for the body has develeoped into entertainment for the mind. But with a scoring sytem, like ping pong, that actually makes sense.
