BAD NIGHT AT THE FARO TABLE

24" x 36" oil on canvas

A popular card game in the Old West was Faro. Many cowboys headed to town on Saturday night with their month's wages, where they would whoop it up with gambling, women and whiskey. Unscrupulous card dealers would often game these liquored up men and take their money. Here, three fired up cowboys realizing they've been had are gonna settle their dispute with bullets before they ride off into the night. © Steven Lang OPAM
