Reading: Inward clarity, but work at it (I think)

posted in: Natter | 0

These days, I'm not much for spiritual and/or religious stuff. I suppose I have little faith in the nonmeasurable. Or I think I do.

That said, I very much like to to do a card reading (Tarot and/or other) each New Year. For focus, even if I forget it all by February (yep. has happened). This year, I did a 4-card layout with closed-eye cutting of four decks:

North: Froud's and MacBeth's Faerie Oracle Deck: Honesty
East: Bestiary Deck: Kyoht's Aye-Aye (6 of diamonds)
South: Goddess Deck: Contemplation / Chang O
West: Rider-Waite: High Priestess

Well now. I take away from this that inner clarity is possible, likely, but still have to work for it. Still, possible! A good thing.

Can you pledge a little bit? I can’t tell you about the $1000 backer yet (I wish I could!) but Bill McKibben called the project “fantastic” on twitter. Does that help?

If not, enjoy the art you see anyway! Here’s the link directly: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1112121841/we-are-all-in-this-together

my sister’s kickstarter

My sister is a REAL artist. As such she doesn't fritter around with a gazillion mini-online shops. Nope, she goes for a kickstarter, and gets attention from famous climate activists and real organizations and other amazing awesome stuff.

So go see: she's only $20 away from halfway! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1112121841/we-are-all-in-this-together

Clay

For Sketchfest #40, prompt "These Troll Hands".

Soft graphite and watercolor on some inexpensive cold press or other, 6.5 x 8.5 inches. I really am starting to use/need bigger paper… That’s one of the scary things for me (too big too free too loose!) so good to see me pushing edges. I think I should use some opaque color to layer clay over his/her fingers but haven’t/not sure quite how…
