Artist's Description

Inspired by a Tarot card deck and picked the one which attracked me the most: The Hermit

There comes a point in your life when you begin to question the obvious. You sense that there is a deeper reality and begin to search for it. This is mainly a solitary quest because answers do not lie in the external world, but in yourself.
The hermit on Card 9 reminds of Diogenes, the Greek ascetic who had gone out with a lantern in hand to search for an honest man. Diogenes is a symbol of the search for truth that the Hermit hopes to uncover by stripping away all diversions.

Encaustic art , bee wax painting photographed and added an embossing plus rendering on it in Photoshop.
