Gryphon Tarot: The Wheel of Fortune
Card X of the Major Arcana, The Wheel of Fortune (Rota Fortuna). Commonly shown with figures rising and falling around it, spun by Fortuna (goddess of luck/fate). Can mean a random stroke of luck, changes seemingly out of the blue. Random good fortune, or like you just won the lottery. More or less karmic payback. This was a hard card for me to compose, and I'm not 100% happy with the painted outcome, mostly because of the bitch of a time I had doing the color adjustments to match the original.
7x10" Watercolors/gouache on Illustration board.
