My hOurworld co-founder Terry Daniels drives to a lot on the shores of Clear Lake, California (his "outdoor office") and makes calls and such to move things along. He sent a snapshot of a recent sunrise there, which I cropped as the reference for this painting. The two trees are here (Couple) and each with two trunks, together repeating the image of the Four of Wands in Tarot.
"The Four of Wands heralds celebration, good times, a happy and harmonious home environment and good news. In numerology, four symbolises stability and firm foundations, and in the case of the Four of Wands, you are now enjoying a period of happiness and stability. This card indicates a sense of harmony and balance as well as completion, and thus symbolises a time of peace and joy in life that come as the result of often difficult and challenging effort. The Four of Wands is one of the most positive cards in the Tarot deck and indicates general good fortune, satisfaction, and fulfilment."
The art board is covered with gessoed canvas, and backed with a hemlock frame.
