Hello, loves!

Are you in love with Tarot? There's so much wisdom in a deck of 78 cards, isn't there?

In the past, I was told by the church that the Tarot was a creation of the devil. Hollywood certainly doesn't do these cards any good publicity.

But despite all these, I've always felt drawn to it. I've had my first Tarot deck for over a year before I took Susannah Conway's course Daily Guidance.

Since then, I've started my daily Tarot practice, continued learning about Tarot, and the images have been coming to me to be painted.

The Moon 

This Tarot Painting series is a series of time lapse videos of my process of creating these Tarot paintings as they come to me. As a result, they don't follow the order of the cards.

In the videos, I'll explain the symbols, and simple interpretations of the specific card in a reading. You'll also hear me throw in a few tips of painting techniques in there.

The Moon was the first one that came to me, and here's the first video:
