I’ve finished my newest Tarot card, the Builder (aka the Emperor). Yes, the model is my sweet man, Craig, and the scene is set on the front porch of our own home, a straw bale house we built a few years ago. I took artistic license with the carving of the Green Man, oak leaves and acorns — and Craig said, “Hey, great idea! Let’s do that!” We’ll add it to our list of never-ending projects . . . 😉
I worked about 10-12 hours a day on this one for the last four days, and for most of that time I had the Democratic Convention on C-Span in the background. Again, most appropriate for the Emperor. I hope that a bit of the spirit of Barack Obama made it into this card . . .
I hope you like it and, as always, please let me know what you think!
If you haven’t visited the main Majors page lately, please do — it’s fun to see all the cards laid out in a “Fool’s Journey” way, and to see which cards I have yet to finish.
I’ll be working pretty much nonstop on the last 5 cards of the 22 Majors for the next month, so please send me lots of positive energy for the work to flow and the distractions to be seriously limited. Thank you!
And a most blessed Lammas Eve / Full Moon / Blue Moon to you all!
