Sun Enters Gemini, Tarot Card Lovers


Sun Enters Gemini, Tarot Card Lovers Gemini Sun tarot card Lovers represents  the duality of our brain on the point of becoming conscious. The duality of the brain is illustrated by the union of the Maiden and the Serpent. The figure descending from the sky is the appearance of human consciousness, self awareness. Inspiration for my depiction of the Lovers card came from Paolo Uccello’s  painting of Saint George and the Dragon. On first view, of Paolo Uccello’s painting it appears the male hero is liberating the maiden from the dragon.  However, on closer scrutiny,  it can be seen that the maiden holds and […]

Magick Spell I Called And Something Came Magick Spell oil on canvas, 20 inches by 16 inches, 2017 Purchase the original painting at Saatchi Art The appearance of the spirit, which can often be seen in incense smoke, has close parallels to what is known as pareidolia, to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness.  The concept of pareidolia leaves us wondering whether the spirits are within or without, or maybe both. What are these energies? Like ourselves they are systems […]

Tarot Queen Fire


Tarot Queen Fire, Water of Fire Tarot Queen Fire.

She radiates composure in the face of adversity expressing decorum and exuding her unique identity. She is an Empress or Tzarina through whom inherited authority from previous generations emanates. Beautiful without being flamboyant, she teases traditionality with allusions of originality. While often radiating the delicacy of a rainbow, if opposed she can express the aggression of a lioness in relentless pursuit of […]
