The Fool and I


This is another tarot sized image. I started with a photo of a road and one of the sky. After I put in the doorway, it got a little Oz-like, so I added the castle. I thought, "What's a fake tarot card without a Fool?" and I made him the guardian of the gate. At that point I was getting feelings of being trapped inside the picture so I added the pouty girl and her little dog to express those feelings.

Looks like somewhere I'd like to travel to...Love the card... nice job... better than most published cards I've seen...I'd buy a deck like this, many I've seen out there to buy don't do much for me. I like the moody feel of it. The little dog is the best touch.

Ok I see that my posts are saying Communicaitons Dept... I logged out and back in as Dieverdog to see if it changed... not sure why that happened. I guess you'll figure out it was me anyway. I had been working on a blog for our dept. at work on Friday and I guess it had me down for that for some reason still. I often can't figure out why computers do what they do.

Ok, I think I fixed my identity and am again Dieverdog and not Communications Dept. That was really screwed up. At least I THINK I fixed it. We'll see. It was all changed on my own site as well but it went back to normal except for the stuff I posted here. This kind of stuff drives me bonkers.

Ok, I'm answering your note about being a musician... that's funny... maybe your mathematical skills make you a good candidate... I don't know if "painter" is the best choice for me or not. But I think those little quizzes are fun to take. The ones that seem more accurate are on Tickle. They are usually more in-depth but they seem to be more accurate and less tongue-in-cheek.
