Presenting the Ten of Cups!


The Ten of Cups took me a while, between waiting for layers of paint to dry, and taking a four-day backpacking trip last week that required a fair bit of prep and recovery time. I really love the color scheme, though, and it was worth the frustration of trying to get the rainbow’s streaks relatively even. It reminds me a lot of the 1980s, actually–between My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake and other children’s cartoons, there were a LOT of rainbows in my life! And since the Ten of Cups refers to a time when the hard times are over, a nostalgic look at childhood isn’t entirely inappropriate.

This is the 40th assemblage, and I’m still ahead of schedule, too, even with taking a bit of time off. The 41st is currently in partial completion on my workbench, and I should be done with it later this week.
