The Empress by nexus7

Tarot design from the Chalice pack, copyright Lynda Steven, aka Nexus7.

The Empress is about fulfilment, plenty and success in material endeavours.

I was born in the UK in 1959, graduating with a degree in English/Italian Literature in 1981. I took two two-year part-time courses in painting and working with mixed media in the 80’s and exhibited with the Dream Illustrators in Coventry, as well a putting on two solo exhibitions, until moving to Brighton in 1994. There I exhibited with the Bear Cave Gallery.

Since 1996 have lived and worked in Budapest, Hungary as a freelancer in several varied disciplines.

    As it should be.
    Materialization of the Creative Procreation. She is full, pregnant about to bear let it born. She is powerful, future driven, and holding her sceptre of Royalty. Naked for showing magnificency and not for showing humbleness or even luscious feelings toward the other genre. No one would dare to touch her or harm her, for she is the Future of the Species. No one would dare to rape her, for she would kill the raper at once even before he could trespass the circle of Life that is surrounding her.
    I love her, Linda..

  • Thank you, Rosa! I had been slightly dissatisfied with my Old Emress for a while, but the Klimtian touches now give her some moreregality, I think.
