A rock concert. Devoted fans worship at the altar of their favourite star, as he basks in the glow of his glory. The lights of the stage seem to make him look superhuman, and that is certainly how he appears to the crowd. His microphone almost seems on fire with the power of his performance, and five more flames can be seen coming from lighters held up by adoring members of the audience.
The rock star represents someone who has succeeded in their field to such a great extent that they are looked upon as almost godlike. Wands is the suit of fire, the element of passion, spirit and creativity. The wand he wields is his microphone-his power is completely in his control. The other five wands are to be seen in the hands holding up the lighters as the audience demonstrate their devotion and appreciation for his victorious performance. The lighting also shows that all eyes are on his achievement, as though he is gifted by the Gods.
A great and well deserved victory for a passionate, driven, charismatic and creative individual is shown in this card, one that brings the recognition and respect of others.
This card was also created with straightforward acrylic paint on rather floppy canvas. This time with a little help from paintshop pro ;)
