Two steaming mugs of frothy hot chocolate sit side by side on a tray. There are spoons in each cup, with spirals on the ends.
The chocolate is rich and creamy, substantial, full of promise and good things. There are two mugs, symbolising partnership, and the spiral spoons symbolise the path any of us must make, and the work we must put in to any relationship we forge.
The two drinks indicate a partnership - friendship, business, romantic, doesn't really matter. What matters is that there are two of you, and you are close enough to sit down and share a drink together, and hopefully, to wash up afterwards. We don't want the milk to go sour in the cup now, do we! It's not likely to though, the two of you mesh, you share a synchronicity - if one of you has made this drink, the other will most likely clean up afterwards, but what ever you do, you will share in it together.
Nestle Double Blend hot chocolate, frothed milk, and Cadbury Velvet on top, especially made and photographed for the Fourth Aeclectic Community Tarot, and then shared with my daughter, while we worked.
The photograph was then manipulated and enhanced using Paintshop Pro (9, if you're interested).
The card Title font is Tall Paul, by Emerald City Fontworks, and the signature font is Harrison, by Andrew Harrison.
Melanie J Cook (rabble) is a multi media artist & website junkie (or so my new business cards proclaim!) Creator of the work-in-progress The Garden Path, an antipodean tarot, Melanie lives in Queensland, Australia, with a husband, three cats, two dogs, many birds and fish, and a garden. She loves the Australian bush, and nature in general. These form the basis of the artwork used in her The Garden Path. Very much a lover of practical art, Melanie wanted this card to show ordinary everyday objects in an extra-ordinary way. www.antipodeantarot.com - www.the-onion.net - www.melaniejcook.com -www.wiccked.com - see?
