Hi there

My name is Emily and this is my dedicated space for documenting my journey with creative living. It is my hope, that I can inspire those of you who visit, read and look through this space to find the curiosity to follow your own inner voice, seek out and do the thing that makes you go “this is what life’s all about.”

Salacia // The Hanged Man

Salacia // The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man (a temporary pause in life, go with the flow, accept the changes - something might need to be sacrificed) depicted as Salacia. The Hanged Man card is often associated with Neptune. As well as themes of self-sacrifice, it is also a card of dreams, inspiration and mysticism.

Salacia, the wife of Neptune,a beautiful nymph, was an obvious choice for me. I really enjoyed painting this scene, as it was a lot of wet on wet layering and I liked the style, with her billowing robes. There are lots of shimmery inks in this painting, so held under the light she looks quite magical!

I posed her upside down, to stick with the depiction of the tarot card, which in the Rider Waite deck is of a man hanging upside down from his foot, although looking quite chilled out about it!
