After struggling to come up with a design for my solstice card this year I gave up and played instead, and then this ‘arrived’. There aren’t many occassions when I create an image and fall in love with it straight away, but this is one. This image captures exactly what this time of year is about for me. Going inward, earth magic, animal medicine, rest, recovery, incubation. I love the colours – that blue again, with Quinacradone Burnt Orange, Paynes Grey.
