While this blog dedicated mainly to playing cards not Tarots sometimes it’s hard to pass some nice artworks which can be used in classic playing cards as well. This Queen of Wands (watercolour) was designed by Francesca Buchko. She painted it for the Tarot show (2012). You can see different stages of work on her blog and find out more about show on Light Grey Art Lab’s.
“My piece took after the actual card quite a bit, but I wanted to focus on the tone and mood of the character in the piece. The Queen of Wands at her best is a social butterfly, amiable and likeable, frequently the center of attention. We don’t have a lot in common, but I can appreciate those traits–they were always something I wanted to have!” ~ Francesca Buchko. © 2012 Francesca Buchko
