My take on the texture theme in this month’s Painted Diaries is inspired by my recent obsession with learning tarot. Queens seem to be popping up everywhere: in the cards, in movies, and in my dreams.
I don’t tend to use much 3D texture in my art so this is an interesting experiment for me. Each piece of textured material is the inspiration point for the queen of the day. And – it turns out – each queen has her own special message.
Here are the queens that have appeared over the past week or so, each inspired by a different texture. Enjoy!
