Artist’s Interpretation & Meaning
“The sea serpent is a powerful creature representing the feeling one has when accomplishing great things, but I made it pastel, almost white, to represent purity and positivity. The girl is riding the serpent as it ascends – the ascent portraying the uplifting feeling one has when emerging into clarity after possibly being muddled or weighed down by lots of hard work. The people in the boat in the distance are in awe, recognizing her for her success…The girl is confident while not being smug or arrogant. I used bold, bright colors to represent the feelings of strength, optimism, and joy that come with success.”
A woman rides a sea serpent as it comes out of the water. She carries five wands in a quiver on her back, the sixth in her hand, with a small laurel wreath on its stem. In a boat nearby, figures stand, watching her ride to victory, spectators to her success. Her serpent steed is so pale that it is almost white, symbolizing the purity of this endeavor. Above there is a clear black shky – she has emerged from the water into crystal clarity as she achieve her immediate goal.
This card represents the need for occasional public recognition of a job well done. Not to bask in it, or be smug, but to have your moment in the limelight, to know that your endeavor is appreciated, giving you the motivation and strength to dive back in.
