Did You Miss These?
Here are some of our favorite pieces for this edition of “Curator’s Picks”. All three of these images are gorgeously done with a floral theme just in time for spring. They are definitely worth a second look! First up, is “The Empress” by Kevin Jay Stanton. It’s a beautiful ink and acrylic piece that part of the artist’ Botanica series (which reimagines The Tarot as plants and herbs). Then be sure to check out “Study 37” by Tran Nguyen. Tran paints with a delicate touch to create emotive and textured experimental portraits. And our third Curator’s Pick is by Ashly Lovett. Her recent drawing “Peony” is a spectacular use of chalk pastel that is developing a spectacular color palette and style that is all her own.

An Ancient Flower
The Empress embodies Mother Nature. It is a card of powerful creativity and fertility, and of the magic in the world we live in. The Magnolia is one of the Earth’s oldest flowers and as a result of continental drift it is spread across almost every corner of the world. Its glamorous blooms and sweet fragrance have inspired many cultures for centuries.
