Hello,
I've been working away...it's been slow going. Funny, the cards I thought would be the easiest (that I had the clearest picture of in my mind) are the ones I am struggling with....and a few of the others have surprised me with how quickly they came to life!

Here is The Hanged Man:

Here is The Star and a detail:

I intentionally selected a medium that doesn't allow me to get too fussy or detailed...I enjoy the happy accidents that happen with the interaction of loose brushstrokes and color. Sometimes the 'accidents' aren't so happy though, and I've needed to restart The Empress. The Strength card is so thick with oil pastel now that I fear I must begin that again too....I will set it aside for a few days and look at it fresh later in the week.

Probably next to be finished with will be The Devil. I'll post when it's done!

Any comments welcome, and thanks for all the encouragement so far...
