Art therapy - divination cards

These are some divination cards I painted for my course in their very first layers of paint. They are meant to explore the positive and negative sides of power, growth, meaning and integration; and be used as symbols to provoke reflection and conversation with a client. It had been a while since I'd painted with gouache, it was a messy business but the finished cards came up well. They stayed very matte though, even after several layers of satin varnish - but that's gouache on cardboard for you!
