Five of Pentacles

Seventy eight artists from around the world gathered together on Facebook to create a Tarot deck. We were each assigned one card, and had total freedom to interpret the theme in our own style.

My card, “Five of Pentacles”, represents a seemingly insurmountable hardship, loss, or burden, that a person is facing. In this case, she has unknowingly veered from the path in a snowy woods, and stepped out onto an icy river. Struggling to keep her balance on the slippery rocks, she vainly tries to cross the deep water, failing to see the bridge and the lamppost marking the safest way behind her.

“Whenever you experience hardship, know that it is only temporary.” ~

“Five of Pentacles” is an acrylic painting that I created for the 78Tarot Project. The limited edition deck was published following a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Archival prints featuring Five of Pentacles can be purchased in my shop, and from me personally at shows.
