Work in Progress

After starting my Jewelry Business in 1988 I did not draw for a long time, and then I began again in 1994. One of the things I started was a Numerology Deck which will be 9 Symbols of 9 cards each, with Original Celtic Knot work wrapped around the Images. It began with a little frame, maybe a 2x3. I drew some knot work around an Acorn... but it ended up too big for the frame. I began to redraw for the tiny little frame I had and thought, 'well, this time I should try 2 Acorns', it still ended up too big for the frame after I inked it, so I began again. 'Oh well...' I thought, 'I might as well go for three, that is such a magical number...' and then I realized I was drawing a Divinatory Deck of Cards using Numbers and Symbols as the guides to assist with messages: A Numerology Deck. So far I have 9 cards finished. The symbols I am sure about are the Acorns, Shells, Crystals and Feathers. I am also involved in Hand Coloring them, and I will try coloring them on Photo Shop using an Air Brush Tool. I have some of these on Rubber Stamps too. There is a time coming, I can feel it, when I will be able to spend more time drawing. I look forward to the evolvement of this Deck. If you are excited about this concept too, send me an E-mail and just gives me a thumbs up for the future possibility...surely this will help inspire me to work on it more.
Here is a sample of the Description of the cards and how the Deck will work.
You can ask someone what Feather, or Acorn, or Crystal means to them, then ad a few more ideas, then look at how the numbers work with that image.
Acorns: A promise of things to come; New beginnings,
growth, strength, a seed, Earth...etc
Crystal: Energy, Psychic abilities, purity, Fire....etc
Feather: Creativity, freedom, writing, adventure, traveling, Air...etc
Shell: Emotions, intuition, a journey, water...etc
One: New Beginnings...Independence
Two: Partnership... working with another
Three: Self expression, Fun...
Five: Travel, Adventure, Change...
Six: Family, Home life...
Eight: Justice, Balance, The Cosmic Judge, Karma...
Nine: The end, the all...
One of Acorns: Completely a new opportunity for New beginnings that will be strong and full of wondrous growth.
Two of Acorns: Represents the Growth opportunity for two people to sprout and blossom together in Love or in business or in friendship.
Three of Acorns: New opportunities in fun and pleasure, a chance to grow in the area of expressing yourself.
Six of Acorns: New Growth an opportunities in Areas of the family and home...maybe children on the way or a new house.
