I make a concerted effort to link all images back to their original authors whether that be their website, blog, gallery or online store. However, if you do not wish to have your image included on my blog please contact me to have it removed or replaced with a text link.
Well it's holiday time, but that doesn't mean I stop working! Finished this last night. I wanted to include subtle - or at least not so obvious - references to the meanings of this card. The Empress is the mother figure, associated with nurturing and sensuality. She is where ideas grow and germinate. Hence the vintage illustrations of a seed growing. Also there are 'bird and bees' and a child to round out all those associations. I've made use of Photoshop brushes and shapes to give the figures crowns. Plus a scepter on the left and an orb in the baby's hands.
