Jokers on the Wall

This display of jokers was framed by me: I think it is one of my better efforts. They make a nice colorful ensemble, none are overwhelmed, overwhelming, or clash.  Note how the two on the top right are oriented back towards the picture's middle. And how the BeeBoy in the top left is marching back towards the middle.. The middle in the top and bottom row are natural middles.

This display was made for my nephew Will whose reflection you can barely see in the glass.



Here's the framed jokers that I have in my office.


This framed set of jokers in my company office (Time4Learning.com). It is bolted to the wall. I've spent a lot of time staring at this selection and I feel that I made some mistakes. I wish I had not put in the seagull, horse, or the seal joker. I put them in for diversity but I think they wreck the aesthetics. I also regret the modern Congress joker and the juggler in the middle row.  I think the peacock in the bottom right is among my most lovely jokers and I think it is pretty rare.


The jokers below is a hand-painted one of a kind joker. Florencia made this, she starts with a card from a deck of cards, scrapes off the image, and then paints on it.  She'll do this as a commission. 
 



BTW, the lady below looks a lot like my wife.  

My children have received some framed joker selections for their walls.
