About the Cover:
Title: Three of Swords

I am slowly, very, very slowly, making a piece for each card of the 78 cards in the tarot deck. There are so many decks out there, but I am basing my images on the most widely recognized deck; the “Universal Waite Tarot” by Smith and Hanson-Roberts. Each card is 12”x16” and is created with different techniques. This Three of Swords piece was done with gel medium transfers, acrylic, scroll saw, and thick epoxy resin on wood.
