Tarot. For more information about the deck and to see the rest of the cards: [link]

Eight of Pentacles - A craftsman, patience, care for details, aborbed in a project, seeking knowledge, pursuing a higher understanding.

With diligence and patience, the Spider crafts her gossamer web. Dawn dusts an array of dewy stars across the threads.

weaver weave a pattern:
weave a dream of summer musk;
weave the drape of autumn dusk.

weaver weave a fate:
weave a life's frail anchored line;
weave the pale moon's waxing signs.

weaver weave a web:
craft each silky precious thread,
artist's inhibitions shed.


Medium: Watercolor
Size: 8.5x14 inches

Did you use masking fluid for the web, or were you able to just paint around it by being very careful? If the latter, I'm even more impressed.
