Interests

I’ve been absent from DA for quite a while now, as after being increasingly reluctant to function on some web sites my ageing computer was no longer able to access DA. A shiny new machine, with some more energetic hamsters spinning its cogs, means I am, for a brief period, up to date and back again. Not that I will be around too much as between now and the end of October I have thirty-nine paintings to produce. All the design work has been done, so that is at least something. 


The project which has been occupying me for the last two years and will continue for pretty much the rest of this is to design and paint a Tarot deck. This has been commissioned by the publishers Llewellyn Worldwide and slated for publication in the Autumn of 2017. It has certainly been keeping me busy. 


Hence continuing not to be very active here. There is however a Facebook page which will be potentially more up to date. www.facebook.com/theceltictaro… From which it will be self-evident the theme of the Tarot is Celtic. It is no coincidence that Celtic Art was something I specialised in for a while before moving to figurative painting.


The author of this Tarot Kristoffer Hughes, is well versed in the Welsh branch of Celtic mythology and it is this in which the deck will specialise. It has been a pretty interesting journey bringing his visions to life.
