The SUN; the Golden Dakini Tarot

Tarot_dakini-SUN-fullBorder1

                           THE SUN CARD

       from THE GOLDEN DAKINI TAROT 

 

Spring is unfolding outside as we stay in our isolated, internal worlds here in the north – and crave the glory of the SUN after this hard winter. Having been entirely immersed in creating a new deck of Tarot cards through the winter and spring, I will be unveiling them one by one, as I complete the deck. And will slowly introduce them… a compilation of years of images, most of the cards incorporate my photographic work with painted bodies. My visionary journey into the magical world of Tarot, interpreted in my own style –  combining painting, photography  and symbolism, merged  through modern digital processes is psychedelic in inspiration and perspective; shamanic, contemporary yet timeless. Creating the deck is an ongoing journey.  Its magic and mystery unfold daily as I do … I hope to have it completed and unveiled by Summer’s end.

Angel Walking

Angelbodytiny.jpgShe walks through mists, and  she dances, stepping lightly through the clouds as Lilith  comes to meet the Sun. Happy  in Aquarius, she floats through Heaven watching , flirting with the stars…

My image has morphed into an Aquarian – a sky clad being… Clouds and sky are breaking through her body and skin.

The Aquarius Sun liberates our spirit with ingenuity, dancing in tandem with the joyous heart of the Leo Moon and freeing us to be inventive in our playfulness and creativity…. and I am feeling it. The planetary lineup has Mercury retrograding as wild Lilith crying out for her freedom and Fortuna join Pluto in the heavens as Neptune casts a dreamy spell upon it all …

New work…  digitalized print , mixture of painting and photography available on canvas.


METATRON; A Jacket for an Angel

JctBackMetatronFAlLLEN, that is… let me make that very clear…

I painted the jacket entirely in one long day that quickly turned into night … I couldn’t stop until it was finished, and kept going, adding the details, until  subtle WiINGS were flying together. Then,I painted the SUN, the SOLAR Disc,imbuing it with  words of love as if meant for a Modern OSIRUS to walk the city streets, whole again, risen from the dead. I painted in a flow – as if under a spell for hours. Time had vanished. I hung it up to see it from the back. Now I stepped back, turned, and looked… Voices began to sing around me . A humming filled the air. As I watched, the wings began to grow…Invisible hands caressed me.My heart jumped when I saw it. The wings kept growing, spreading into the air The room became dark, and the wings glowed a violet hue as if under a soft black light . Everything glowed. I knew it had been painted for an Angel…The jacket moved, and a form began to fill it, growing with a density, as if the force of many winds, and full of sky, it took the shape of a man, standing suspended in the air before me… He slowly turned towards me. Wearing nothing but  my jacket and a pair of soft, laced up black buckskin pants laced low on his lean hips…His body rippled with sleek muscle and violet fire. Our eyes met.I knew what he was instantly…

Books, Illustrations, and Vampires…

Flamedancercover2sm8I am completing the first books in my fantasy fiction series,” FLAMEDANCER.” Now wondering, should I include illustrations…even just a few …? Being an artist, many people are requesting them…..and I too, am so wanting to create magical visions- books  full of fantasy images,but the writing has me fully immersed… I am torn… I feel they add so much… but it is so much more challenging to lay out books with images… and costly as well… should I remain digital, or plan to design them for print…?
