The Art of Tarot: Let Your Imagination Run Wild

Well, well, well, my creative friends. Are you feeling uninspired? Bored with your usual sources of inspiration? Maybe it’s time to spice things up a bit and give tarot cards a try.

That’s right, I said tarot cards. Those mystical pieces of cardboard that are usually reserved for the woo-woo crowd. But don’t knock it until you’ve tried it, because these babies can be a game-changer for your art.

Here’s the deal: You shuffle the deck, draw a card, and let your imagination run wild. It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure book, but with more symbolism… and less reading. Use the image on the card as a starting point for your painting or drawing, and see where it takes you.

If you’re feeling really adventurous, why not create your own tarot deck? That’s right, you can be the master of your own destiny, or at least the master of your own deck of cards. Use your intuition and creativity to come up with your own unique images and themes. Over the years, I’ve done just that with the Radiant and Shimmering Souls Tarot + Oracle Decks. Check them out here!

The real fun comes in when you start experimenting with colors and patterns. Look at the colors on the card and think about how you can incorporate them into your work. Maybe it’s time to break out of your usual color palettes and try something bold and unexpected.

As for patterns, well, let’s just say the tarot deck is a treasure trove of inspiration. From swirls and spirals to stars and stripes, there’s no shortage of patterns to play with.

So if you’re feeling stuck or uninspired, it’s time to give tarot cards a try. Trust me, it’s not just for the woo-woo crowd anymore. You might just find yourself creating your best artwork yet. And who knows, maybe you’ll even develop a new appreciation for the mystical and mysterious. Stranger things have happened.
