For Womyn

Journey Cards for Guidance, Epiphanies, and Revelations

Journey CardsDo you crave the clarity of a daily snapshot of your life? Would your next steps be surer if you had a candle to shine into the shadows of your past? Are you seeking guidance as you create a roadmap for your future?

This deck contains intricate pen-and-ink drawings of goddesses from throughout my career. It also contains multimedia paintings of saints from my imagination. Sanctus Cumulus, the Latin Saint of Clouds, was the first to reveal herself to me in a dream, followed soon after by 18 of her glorious sisters. The feminine energies of the world’s well-loved goddesses combine beautifully with those of these as-yet-unknown saints to create a distinctive and comprehensive deck of divination cards.

Draw inspiration from the dynamic feminine energy of these intimate, detailed images. Gain personal insights as you immerse yourself in a collective wisdom forged from thousands of years of goddess-centered life. Open yourself to the epiphanies the Universe whispers in your ear whenever you invite Her in. Wherever you are in your journey, the saints and goddesses inhabiting these cards will light your passage and empower you with grace awareness, integrity, and strength.

Just unleash your passion for color and go where your imagination leads!

21st Century Renaissance Paintings Notecards

This May Be the Last Sunset I Ever See painting by Sudie RakusinThe cards are reproductions of my original, multi-media paintings on canvas.

For each painting in this series, I begin with a stretched canvas, then cut and attach plywood covered in canvas to the frame to create an irregular edge. I build up the canvas with various media, including using papier maché to sculpt a flower that erupts out of the canvas or to create a shape to hold a crystal. A butterfly, feather, the stamen or pistil of a flower—you never know what is going to stand away from the surface of the painting.

We Only Die Once Painting by Sudie Rakusin

I maximize the interactive elements of the artwork by cutting holes in the canvas, creating pockets, or adding doors that open and close to hide some small, painted treasure. When You Let Go of What You Are by Sudie RakusinFinally, to finish off the piece, I add beads, crystals, glass, ribbons, fringe, LED or fiber optic lights, or the words of a favorite quote.

You can see these paintings and the others in my 21st Century Renaissance series by visiting my Gallery.

Only a Stubbornly Persistent Illusion painting by Sudie Rakusin
