Lunch with Fran /tarot cards from the past

This is a pic of Fran Saperstein ( artsyfran.com/ ) and I at the Mariott in Kauai. Fran was visiting the island with her DH. Fran is an incredible artist (she's wearing a tee shirt she designed) and she has an art philosophy of "don't think about it, just do it!"...and she is as delightful as her liberating way of thinking! We had a japanese lunch of sushi, sashimi and tempura, and then we went to Starbucks, of course, to finish off our lunchdate. I had a wonderful time with her and wish we could have spent more time together. Hopefully i'll be going to Phoenix in the future, and we can get together again.
Here's a close-up of us!

I added some ripe pears to my patience card, and some foot ripples to "fate"....but the additions are so minor i am not going to bore you with a repost.

I have done 11 other tarot cards - and I thought i'd post them for you to see but i couldn't find the earliest ones i did, so i suppose i probably never scanned them. I hope to eventually make my own full deck - hah! ...like i ever finish a full project! ...and the cards so far have been done for 4 different swaps, so they are all done in totally different styles!




These cards were all "zetti Tarot" cards
They are: 5 of swords, the emperor, 4 of swords, ace of cups and the queen of wands.

Friday another Art Diva, Joanne joannethiemehuffman.typepad.com/ arrives with her friend Katie. I've never met either of them in person, but I feel like i must have known Joanne in a prior life or something! They are both here for an art retreat taught by Lorri Scott and DJ Pettitt. VERY EXCITING- WOOHOO! I can hardly wait! I am so blessed!

Connie, I love the Tarot cards (even though I know nothing about Tarot interpretations, I love the art people do on their cards). I looked at the Hawaii pictures on Fran's blog and flicker and they're really cool. I don't know how I can wait until Friday; I am so excited about this trip.
Joanne, who will call you after she checks into the hotel

Connie, It was so lovely to meet you. I felt like I was seeing a longtime friend from the moment we met in person! :) I do hope you come to Phoenix again and that we'll get to do some art! Thanks again for an awesome lunchdate!
