Art – Four of Wands Tarot Card

I finished my newest painting last night: the Four of Wands. This was the second tarot card I’ve painted, the first being The Hanged Man, but this was definitely a challenge!

I decided on a pair of streamertail hummingbirds flying freely and have their long, flowing tails symbolizing the four of wands. I’ve never painted hummingbirds before but I’d love to paint them again because they’re just so pretty and seem to shimmer like jewels.

To be honest, this painting still feels like a bit of a ‘practice’ run. I can feel the warmth in the painting but I’m a little unsure about the joy. I may give the Four of Wands another shot in the future.

The Four of Wands tarot card is available as a print in my shop:


About Jo @ Rainbow of Crazy

My username came from that very random day several years ago when I was told that I was a "walking rainbow of crazy... twinkling with the spectrum of a thousand different colours." That name makes me smile to this day and will always remain with me!
