The Moon

I hope this isn't too off topic. It's not technically a faerie illustration, but it's definitely faerie inspired.

The Moon

I painted this for last week's Illustration Friday challenge, the topic was "phenomenon". I'm inspired by the fact that the winter solstice occurs on a full moon this year. Symbolically speaking, the moon is at the height of her power on the eve that the sun dies and is reborn. I designed this drawing so it could be used in a tarot deck, as - of course - The Moon. I'd love to continue working on major arcana cards as I get the chance, although I doubt I'll ever finish the entire deck.
