Queen of Pentacles - Original Painting ($1200.00)

Nurture and care of others, generosity, and possessing a warmth of spirit. The fan of branches arrayed around her figure are reminiscent of the ten-armed Hindu Goddess Durga, embodiment of feminine creative energy. She is dedication, a protector, and one who is reliable and trustworthy. She is secure in her material possessions and her position in life.

The Queen of Pentacles will lend her support to any who asks. She has strength, that she draws from the very Oak tree that she is a part of (or that is a part of her?) She is willing to share that strength that is drawn down from the golden power of life and warmth of the sun itself, and into her branches, and transmuted into purest energy. "Carry this as a token and a reminder that I am always here," she says, taking a leaf from the boughs that whisper a singing susurrus from around her. They sigh in a hundred voices, an eerie harmony of the secrets that they hold for her.



Eight of Pentacles - Original Painting ($750.00)

A craftsman, patience, care for details, aborbed in a project, seeking knowledge, pursuing a higher understanding.

With diligence and patience, the Spider crafts her gossamer web. Dawn dusts an array of dewy stars across the threads.

weaver weave a pattern:
weave a dream of summer musk;
weave the drape of autumn dusk.

weaver weave a fate:
weave a life's frail anchored line;
weave the pale moon's waxing signs.

weaver weave a web:
craft each silky precious thread,
artist's inhibitions shed.



Six of Pentacles - Original Painting ($600.00)

The extremes of those that have and those that have not; giving and receiving.



Five of Pentacles - Original Painting ($600.00)

Spiritual poverty, material troubles, insecurity, hard times, neglecting the body's needs, being ostracized and excluded.



Three of Pentacles - Original Painting ($550.00)

Teamwork, functioning as a unit together, competence, achieving beyond the expected.



King of Cups - Original Painting ($1250.00)

He is wise and understanding. He knows the meaning of patience. Like the sea turtles that swim at his side, he guides the way with a steady calm through the ever-shifting uncertainties of the vast ocean depths. He reads the knowledge of the centuries that has been etched into the patterns on their shells, and drinks in that gift with every breath taken of the water that flows in and around them all. The waters grow still and peaceful in his presence.

The seahorse is a symbol of the power of Poseidon, and is imbued with the tireless strength of the sea. He is a patient creature, swimming through the swells at his own fluid and graceful pace. That grace is armored by the spines of its exoskeleton, and the male seahorse is the protector of the young.



Knight of Cups - Original Painting ($1000.00)

The Unicorn is a child of the sea - born of foam and restless waves, surging with the wild abandon of the surf. The Knight of Cups is her companion on the eternal quest.

He is the knight of the Round Table on the grand quest for the Grail. He is the romantic who seeks where his heart and emotions lead. He is the artist and the musician and the poet whose eyes see into the unseen nether-realms of imagination. He is the idealist who will not let physical laws stop him from riding with reckless abandon across the wavetops on his journey.



Ten of Cups - Original Painting ($950.00)

Serenity, peace, lasting success and happiness, attainment of the heart's desires, family support and bonds, enjoying the blessings of life.



Nine of Cups - Original Painting ($875.00)

Pleasure of the senses, satisfaction and wish fulfillment, success, assured future, bounty, and health.



Eight of Cups - Original Painting ($1000.00)

Delving within for personal discovery and answers, turning away and disengaging from the material for the spiritual, moving on, letting go, weariness, drain.

Seeker of the Seas, dive down, dive deep. Plumb the sapphire waters so dark that they pulse with the nacreous gleam of black pearls. Slice through the waters, O Seeker of Truth; slide with lithe body through the currents and undertows; turn away from the sunlight of the world up above that blinds with its too-sharp brilliance. Like the delicate luminescence of the deep sea life, there are some things which can only be seen when the eyes grow enlarged in the dim netherlit otherworld. Dive down, Seeker of the Seas!



Seven of Cups - Original Painting ($750.00)

Indulging in fantasies, having too many options to chose from. Too many desires, some within the realm of reality, others...not so much. Unlimited possibilities.

Her head is lost in the clouds. She has stars in her eyes as she looks to the castle in the sky, unaware of their precarious perch. Meanwhile, he is a little more grounded, eyes on the castles that are on the ground and within reach, however obscure the arcane symbols on his map may be.



Five of Cups - Original Painting ($675.00)

Regret, loss, rejection of pleasure, feeling sorrow, wishing for what might have been.



Four of Cups - Original Painting ($700.00)

Being unaware and self-absorbed, isolated and seeking within, disengaged from the world, dreamy, contemplative.



Knight of Swords - Original Painting ($1200.00)

The Knight of Swords is the brave hero who rushes headlong into conflict to defend his beliefs. He is blunt and comes directly to his point. He is domineering, a seeker, slicing through the skies with his sword and his wings. A storm gathers in his wake, borne of the turbulence his winged army creates, and he is lifted high above it all to pierce through the chaos. The sword is a beacon.

He calls out to the night's abyss:
Lift me up spirits of Sky
grant me keen sight of Hawk
swiftness of Sparrow
grant me insight of Raven
brave heartbeat of Hummingbird
bear me up with grace on wings of Swan
guide me with visions of wisdom from Owl



Nine of Swords - Original Painting ($650.00)

Suffering from anguish, fear, anxiety, guilt, uncertainties in the night.

Stormcrows herald impending dissolution
with voices cawing raucous absolution
round and round and spiraling ever near
one future sought - one future feared

The funnel of the sky stretches up to the heavens; an ominous tower of storms with but the hope and glimmer of light high above at the eye of turmoil. "Come to me, come with me," the voice of the Stormcrows whispers to him from nearby. "Let me guide you through." With anxious eyes, he gazes upwards, away, oblivious to the proffered guidance through the night of the soul. He clutches sheathed sword close for security, rather than grasping bright blade aloft to light the way!



Eight of Swords - Original Painting ($650.00)

Wasting energy on the trivial, frozen in crisis, restricted, confused, feeling powerless, trapped by circumstances.

The Brambles Crone lives among the blackberry hedges where the fruit is tempting and sweet, but even the leaves have wickedly curved thorns to catch and hold. The little hummingbird may flit and navigate with ease among such treacherous tangles, but the noble and grand elegance of the Swan with the arcing spread of her wings is not for such tangled and thorny corridors.



Seven of Swords - Original Painting ($650.00)

Escaping responsibility, making away with that which is not yours, uncertainty, keeping something to yourself, dishonor, being two-faced.

He hides his face behind a mask, shrouding his true nature, and he smirks in a rather satisfied way that he has managed to steal one of the swords that the Swan Guardian oversees. He thinks the Guardian is oblivious, but she is in fact watching him with one eye. "What have you got there? Shiny bauble! Shiny bright!" the blackbirds demand, drawn to the sullen gleam. He turns his back to them as well; for he is the cleverest Blackbird to have been able to draw this Sword from the Stone.



Five of Swords - Original Painting ($700.00)

Concentrating narrowly on one's own self-interest, power play, battle, sacrifice of integrity.



Four of Swords - Original Painting ($700.00)

Solitude and rest from strife, inner contemplation, exile.



Three of Swords - Original Painting ($500.00)

Heartbreak, receiving little solace, lonesomeness, isolation, betrayal.



Two of Swords - Original Painting ($650.00)

Denial, blocking off emotions, avoidance of and not seeing the truth, stalemate, impasse.



Nine of Wands - Original Painting ($700.00)

Vigilance, strength in reserve, being prepared.

The Sentinels keep watch from above, ever wary, ever vigilant, the Eternal Guardians. They defend against the unknowns that lie hidden in the abyss -- perhaps it is just light and mist and the edge of the world, but they have not ventured beyond. They know only that they have been charged to watch, eyes to the west, from where the light fades each dying day.



Tower - Original Painting ($800.00)

Upheaval and sudden change, crisis, releasing all emotion, suffering a blow to the ego, revelation and seeing through illusions.



Pisces - Original Painting ($1000.00)

The Fishes. Visionaries and dreamers, subsumed self sometimes in the care of others. Spiritual seekers, looking for the answers to the mysteries of life.



Scorpio - Original Painting ($1000.00)

The Scorpion. An intense personality, and this focus carries to everything they do, whether for benefit or detriment.



Leo - Original Painting ($1000.00)

The Lion. Loyal, proud, generous, outgoing and with a flair for drama, glories in leadership.



Aries - Original Painting ($1000.00)

The Ram. Impulsive, takes the initiative, and determined. The sparking flame of assertiveness.



Maestro of Birds - Original Painting ($1500.00)

From fallow field and verdant vale,
from sun-bleached shores with diamond grains,
