The Five of Pentacles: Kiwi Birds!
The Five of Pentacles deals a lot with hardships: a time where you might find yourself in a situation full of struggle. It could be anything.. a failing relationship, a dire financial situation, or ill health. I hoped to take this feeling of negativity and loss and put it into my painting.
I painted a pair of kiwi birds that seem to have lost everything. Everything around them has fallen, and everything below them is still burning to the ground. Everything they have known has changed, but thankfully, not all is lost. The pair hold each other close because they know that they have each other, and that they can move on and rebuild their lives. As sad as this tarot may be, I found joy in painting these kiwis because even if they are mourning, there is still this comfort that they’ve found in each other. There is always still hope in the Five of Pentacles; you just need to open your eyes and look around for it.
