I was asked to create this tarot card for the new group The Redbubble Tarot

The Empress is often depicted as a Mother Earth / Gaia type of figure, with abundance surrounding her. She herself is often depicted as pregnant, and is both crowned with stars and holds a shield with the symbol of Venus upon it. In this artwork, she holds a pomegranate in her hand, while behind her is a waterfall, and a stylized field of wheat and flowers.

The original is mixed media on pastel paper (liquid gold leaf, liquid silver leaf, oil pastels, colored pencils, marker), about 12.5 × 19.5 inches.
