Two of Pentacles

Not a lot to say about this one, really. I'm not drawing the cards in any particular order, just doing whatever comes to mind for whatever reason. This card typically has to do with balancing the various forces in one's life-- it is often seen as being a bit more lighthearted, but the way it came out seems to be a bit more serious, suggesting challenge, worry, even trepidation perhaps.

When I'm drawing these cards, I have a basic idea, but to some extent things just unfold on their own-- ideas have been coming mid-stream. For example, note that although the figure is upright, the horizon is tilted. Color-wise, I see this as a sunny day, blue sky, warm clouds. Hmm... that would lighten the mood a bit, wouldn't it. Well, this is all a work in progress; everything is subject to change.
