Knight of Swords Tarot: The Swift Greyhound
I’ve wanted to paint more domestic dogs for a while. Though I wasn’t sure which breed would be the most fitting for a tarot card, when I got to the Knight of Swords, the greyhound immediately came to mind.
The Knight of Swords is this force of nature that seems to be unstoppable, making his way through anything and everything without a concern for what’s around him. The only thing on his mind is what he needs to do to get to where he needs to go. I liked the idea of this greyhound visually forcing his way against the clouds, leaping over the sword and racing towards his goal. You might not want to get in his way!
