Recent Purchase

Not Quite Flying, But Soon

Talisman



This summer, I purchased two original works of art by Adrienne Trafford. They are both from her Journey Oracle Deck. The tree with eggs is the work of art that is on the back of each of the cards in the deck. The Talisman is card #3o in the deck. These paintings are 4" x 6" and they are encased in glass, ready to hang.

On the back of the tree painting, Adrienne has written: "I think a bird's nest with eggs is such a hopeful thing. It is so filled with promise and potential." I chose this painting because of my strong love for trees and birds.

On the back of the Talisman painting, Adrienne has written: "It wasn't HER heart, but she suddenly felt quite powerful with it around..." I chose this painting because I like the idea of a talisman. A talisman is an object held to act as a charm to avert evil and bring good fortune ~ sometimes magical. I love the heart and everything about the girl ~ her hair, her tattoos, the look on her face.

Both of these works of art are signed and dated on the back. I am very happy to add them to my collection of art.

Adrienne is a wonderful artist. You will love what you see on her blog and in her etsy shop.

I love your new purchases, especially the Talisman. I could almost want a tattoo such as she has! Okay, maybe a temporary one.
