New Painting - Old Civil War House

I went out Sunday to take pictures of old Civil War homes in the area.

It is a shame that some of them are just left to fall apart. It is such a sad and beautiful sight at the same time. I used one of the pictures today to do a mixed media work on 20 x 20 canvas. I love the colors and the sense of nostalgia.

New Crow Tarot Cards and Pendants For Ebay

I have been busy working on my Crow Tarot deck and have made it half way through. I have starting selling pendants with the crows on them too. I have several listed on ebay right now and hope to have the entire deck finished by the middle of February.

It has been fascinating working on my own tarot deck. I have learned so much about the world of tarot and I look forward to learning more about fortune telling in the future. I will keep everyone posted. Thanks to all of you who have supported me in my adventure.

More on the Crow Tarot Deck

I have really enjoyed working on my Crow Tarot Series. I am to the Seeker for now. I have been sellling the original works on ebay. I wish I had waited until after the set was published but it just didn't occur to me. Here are some of the other cards. You can find the other originals listed this week.
Check out my new video on Youtube this week too. I hope to do more soon.

More on My Crow Tarot Deck

I have painted the first five cards. I am so excited about designing this deck of cards. I began my interest in the tarot in college. I also played around with runes, but just couldn't get the same feel for them.

My first deck was called the Enochian Deck which was wonderful. I then moved on to the Witch's Deck which I still have. I have been looking around and there are hundreds of kinds of Tarot decks to choose from. I have several that I would like to design. I will post some pics of the others as I get them done.

New Crow Tarot Card Series

I have been having a ball working on a very unique project for me. I have decided to do a Crow Tarot Deck of my own. I have been fascinated with the Tarot for years and have decided it is time. I have already begun work on the originals. I have done them as aceo cards and listed them on ebay. I wish I had waited until I had all my cards finished but I already have bids so I will have to finish my task as I had first planned.

I thougt I would post a few pics of my new cards.

Happy New Year

I have been very busy of late getting things ready for the new year. I have been through my house like a whirl wind. I have been cleaning and decluttering. Mostly just throwing things out. It just dawned on me how full my little house is.
I think sometimes I have bouts of claustrophobia. I just know I want it to have half the stuff that it has now. I find that if I close my eyes it is easier to throw things out.
I lost my sister-n-law the day before Thanksgiving and I have been trying to deal with that also.
She was only 31 yrs old. It seems so unfair for someone so young, with two young children and a career to just disappear from the planet. It has made me realize how little time we really have here. I have been trying to make everyday count. It is a shame that it takes a tragedy for us to see how lucky we are.
Well enough of that for today. I hope to be able to post at least every other day this year. I hope to be more disciplined. Tomorrow you can take a peek at my new Crow Tarot that I am working on.
