The Knight of Swords is on a Quest of the mind. He cuts through cloudy thinking, to reveal the sun. The Knights cape shows a blue sky with happy little thought clouds floating by.

When I painted this card David and I were going through divorce after twenty years of marriage. It was a heavy, dark time and there was pain, confusion and gloominess. But David cut through the mental anguish and revealed the best in both of us - we both have the Sun as our birth cards. Since then we have become good friends, meeting once a month for tea, mostly to enjoy talking about our beloved sons, but also sharing news and our lives.

Today David is on a new quest; moving to a rehabilitation center in Denver to begin his recovery from a severe stroke. I see David again cutting through the cloudiness of his brain trauma to reveal his brilliance.
