My latest card in the tarot series is The Sun; traditionally this card often has the sun clearly depicted in the centre of the card, with other elements in the foreground (faces, people, or a young boy riding a pony/horse) – I have deviated from this ever so slightly (having the sun represented by the girl), though the symbolic meaning is still the same: Positive creative energy, completion, joy, warmth and peace… all round a pretty happy card:

The Sun – coloured version (work in progress)

I also finished colouring/painting a few pen & ink illustrations from my sketchbook – I posted the drawing of my sun playing on the computer a while back, hoping to finish the coloured version sooner – I have included the drawing for reference to save going back through posts :) Even though the angle isn’t the most interesting (drawing someone from behind), Ben sat still long enough for me to draw him, and I quite enjoyed both drawing and painting this one. The other one is more of a doodle – a guitar, some dangling feet and a quick sketch from a photo of Jimi Hendrix. I don’t think this one is overly great, it is just a doodle… :)

Art to me, is as much about understanding life and its mysteries, as it is about telling stories to connect with the world ...

    Great drawings. Loved your tarot card, and I did like the finished drawing of Benjamin – but, oops, sun/son.
