Our theme this time is dear to me, a object that has been an important symbol in my personal artistic lexicon: the cup.

For me, cups represent abundance, blessing, nurture and sustenance.

My tarot suit is the Cups.
I have carried the Waite deck with me for fourty-plus years now.
As a young woman, I identified with the Page card of my suit.
|My best friend in High School made me a cap like the Page wears.|
Now that I am a woman of some considerable years, my card has become the Queen of Cups.
|If you come to visit Flossy and I in my studio, you will be offered to drink tea from the cup on the left.|
