Charm Bracelet by
It's time to tackle the tarot cards for the painting of the Gypsy Fortune Teller.
Ms. Ellen Ross , who is a professional tarot card reader, helped me with the interpretation of cards so that the painting reads the story I want to convey.
Here are the cards and their meanings:
1. Falling Tower - Complete and sudden change, downfall, severing of friendship
2. Devil - downfall, strange experience-fatality
3. Wheel of Fortune- "reverse" - bad luck
4. Lovers - "reverse" - failure to pass the test, unreliability
5. Fool - "reverse" - bad decision, negligence
6. Queen of Swords - quick witted, intensely perceptive
7. Four of Coins - love of material wealth- hoarder
8. Moon - minor deception or gain without paying the price
I will be posting more about these mini paintings in the upcoming days. When creating a painting doing some homework about the props means that you have something to talk about once the painting is finished. When I exhibit at shows or in galleries I am often asked about my paintings and all I have to do is recall what inspired me and how I went about collecting the elements that make up the paintings theme.
