PRESIDENTS PLAYING POOL

I would think Teddy could give the group the 7 and the snap. I would not play trickey dickey, he would play on his nerve and lose and give you a rubber check. I like Ike as my partner in a 4 ball game.

The price on this picture which is a professional reproduction of an oil, never rolled, shipped flat, it's $60, one hell of a price, the lowest price there is on this. I have them in stock for sale now.

10 x 16

The standard size allows you to walk into any hobby or art store and pick out a frame so you don't necessarily have to have a custom frame made for this item. That is up to you. The canvas giclee will look similar to an oil painting when it is framed since there is not any matting nor glass over it.



Also available:

10 x 16 open edition print signed by the artist for $70
(not numbered, ships immediately)

12 x 18 open edition stretched canvas giclee for $140
(not signed, not numbered, ships immediately)

Presidents in the painting (from left):

Teddy Roosevelt, George W Bush, Gerald Ford (seated), George H.W. Bush, Dwight Eisenhower (seated), Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon

Andy Thomas


Andy Thomas is not only an immensely talented painter, but also a storyteller with the images he creates. His subject matter consists of a variety of images from historical events to intimate moments of everyday life. The artist’s desire to create is funneled into the area of painting realism that ranges from very loose to very tight. Thomas’s medium is primarily oil, but he also works in watercolor, pen and ink, charcoal, pencil, and ink wash. He is also a very accomplished sculptor.

Primarily self-taught, Thomas began his professional art career in 1991 after sixteen years with a major advertising agency. In his studio, the artist creates his unique paintings that tell their “stories.” Thomas says, “I never consciously ponder elements of design or principals of design…I rely on my sketches to refine a value scheme as a starting point. They also help me visualize the completed painting and consider light, painting technique, subject or object importance, and other considerations. The viewer’s eye-path is a big influence on the composition at this point and all through the painting process.” Thomas’s style has been compared to Russell and Remington, and artist says he also has been influenced by Howard Pyle, Richard Schmid, Norman Rockwell, and others.

Many of Thomas’s historical images have been used in books and as book covers, and his various paintings also have been featured in numerous magazines. The artist’s original works are in many private and corporate collections and also in the permanent collections of museums around the country.

Thomas exhibits in several shows annually, the most recent being the 2006 C. M. Russell Art Auction where he sold eight original paintings. The artist also enjoys judging art shows and teaching children and adult painting classes. He is a talented writer and published a book containing over 100 color images of his work, along with stories written by him.

The artist is a member of the famed Salmagundi Club in New York, The Portrait Society of America, and other art organizations. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Missouri Southern State University with a BS in Marketing Management.

His picture is at the bottom.

Presidents playing poker!

Grand Ol Gang


This print is overall 12" x 18".

The image is apx. 9.75 x 16" and has a crisp, white border with the title centered below.

We are selling these prints unframed so that you can

pick out your own matting and framing at a nearby craft or frame shop.

It will take a standard 12' x 18" frame.


It’s lonely at the top!

Our USA Presidents have a uniquely solitary job. They surround themselves with the strength and wisdom of talented and experienced people, but as Harry Truman once said, "The buck stops here." We can hardly imagine the weight of decisions they must bear. Perhaps that is why we are so familiar with the before and after photographs depicting the accelerated ageing process while in office. These leaders deserve some time to relax and unwind.

Some of the greatest times anyone can enjoy are when we can let our guard down because we are among those who have been where we have been: people who know the truth and don’t make harsh judgments. We can have a great time with each other especially after the challenge has been met and the heat is off. We can talk, commiserate and just be ourselves.

Who do former presidents hang out with? Wouldn’t it be just a great time if they could "let their hair down" together and just have a time to laugh and remember? Can you imagine that?

Republican party presidents (Counterclockwise around the table beginning in lower left): George HW Bush, Abraham Lincoln, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, George W Bush, Ronald Reagan
