Artist Statement

“Engulfed by the warmth of the Sun, a carnival boy and his friend ride a bluebird of happiness. Released from limitations, the young boy represents innocence and rebirth. The chill has been warmed out of his weary bones of the past, while clarity of vision and vitality gain strength. With healing rays of green and revitalizing rays of yellow, the sun touches every living thing. Dark days are over, and we are free to bask in its dazzling ight, and to celebrate achievement and vitality. The Sun provides the love of life to help us gain clearer perception so that we may live our lives to its fullest potential.”

Card Meaning

The Sun blazes, casting no shadows, as two young carnies joyfully ride a bluebird through the sky and over a gray patchwork wall. Yellow and green rays shine from this solar orb, as thes children escape the grey world below, reminiscent of cheerful sunflowers in our own garden. A bright flower spontaneously sprouts from the young boy’s hat as he rides past, reminding us of the life and light brought by the Sun.

This card brings cheer, just as the Sun brings warmth after a long winter, reminding us that all darkness ends. Your work is complete; it is time to celebrate your success. Life is good right now, and your confidence and joy draw people to you.
