Eight of Swords

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

Eight of Swords - Wasting energy on the trivial, frozen in crisis, restricted, confused, feeling powerless, trapped by circumstances.

The Brambles Crone lives among the blackberry hedges where the fruit is tempting and sweet, but even the leaves have wickedly curved thorns to catch and hold. The little hummingbird may flit and navigate with ease among such treacherous tangles, but the grand elegance of the Swan with the arcing spread of her wings is not for such tangled and thorny corridors.

Medium: Watercolor
Size: 8.5x14 inches

truly beautiful. I like the variety of blues and how the humming bird makes a bright spot of color above the trapped swan. Wonderful composition too with the winding thorns winding around.

I like the composition of this, with the hummingbird as the focus in the middle and the swords drawing the eye from the swan to the hummingbird or vice versa.

Very pretty!

You are so talented... I wish I could be as half as much good as you... :envy: :faint:
