6 - The Lovers


The lovers - balance, energy, flow, passion, melding of heart and mind, forming a union or marriage; determining values and choices, and struggling with temptation.

- A thanks to all those who offered suggestions and opinions when I posted the initial sketch for this piece. Some of those suggestions I put into use. For those that I didn't use, well I still appreciated your input, whether or not it was against this image. Unfortunately you can't please everyone, and this deck adheres to a vision that I have that may not match someone else's.

So here's a story... I bought this as a print way back when you first posted it and then I kinda forgot about the deck, because life got weird. 

Fast fwd to this spring (so, 14 years later?) and I'm visiting family, and this deck almost leaps off the shelves at me, reminding me I've neglected my tarot work. I buy it, bring it home and there's the Lovers, giving me a bit of a "what took you so long" look :)

I really love the colors in this piece. And the detail is amazing.

This is probably my favourite image. The sun and the moon. Light and dark. Cool and warmth.

It may sound silly, as I know this was for your tarot serious, but I would love to see more paintings of these two.
This is really really really beautiful !

I love your art, and this one is one of my favorite. It's really beautiful and it makes me think of a quote in french, from Nicolas Bouvier, "l'amour est ascentionnel comme la prière". If I try to translate "love goes upward like prayer"...
