The Empress is a symbol of bounty/summer in the Tarot tradition, but when the card is reversed so is its meaning.
This is very nice. I'm a huge fan of this style. I see how it fits the reversed Empress. By my mythic system, I'd probably see the reversed Empress as Persephone. Certainly the sirens and Persephone were inextricably linked.
This picture would also make for a good minor arcana card, maybe the five of cups.
It's a hit and miss affair -- the empress got through but the emperor didn't...
That's very impressive and emotional. I love your style.
I hope so -- one can never tell. Sometimes people can't see what my paintings are about at all!
Great conveyance of emotion...nice colours; it certainly does reflect the feeling of winter!
This is a very old pic -- from a time I ws tryiong to do a tarot set--as so many people [apparently] do. No other cards every got completed...
Very moody powerful work you have here, expressive.
Image and color combine to create a strong composition -excellent painting !!!
