Work in Progress: One Sign at a Time

This is the first in the series called Zodiac Art that combines my longstanding interest in astrology and my love for mixed media art. I started with my own sign Pisces and have eleven more to go. I first painted a piece of cotton cloth and then printed the text relating to the sign on it. The text describes and delineates the sign in relation to other signs occupying various houses. The zodiac sign medallion was hand painted on a piece of silk and mounted on a rigid interfacing. I also created a companion card that delineates the placement of the ascendant lord in different houses.

It took a while to get the first piece going. What's taking up time is the researching and composing of the text materials relating to the sign. These pieces will be available in my Etsy shop soon.
