The Moon

$16.99$125.00

My take on Mucha’s “Moon” – for the 78 Tarot “Mythical” project.  Seventy-eight different artists are participating, each illustrating a card, and my assignment was for “The Moon.” If you are a fan of the past centuries’ art nouveau movement, you will recognize the primary figure as being a riff on Alphonse Mucha’s “Moon and Stars” series. Obviously I work in a very different medium, hehe, but I wanted to specifically reference that imagery in this painting. Being a “Mythic” deck, each card is supposed to incorporate well-known gods/goddesses/mythological figures – and since I had The Moon I wanted to evoke Luna/Selene in my piece.
We were also supposed to reference traditional tarot imagery so that our cards are recognizable to readers, and I’ve incorporated a couple of wolves/dogs and the two pillars (as well as the crawdad, lol) from the Rider-Waite deck, and as a nod to the early Flemish Tarot I’m giving the female figure a distaff (as in spinning wool) in her hand. The Moon card is often associated with Diana/Artemis, so I particularly wanted to feature a wolf or two!
I also wanted to give a nod to the “stars” – if you look at the glowing bits around her, you’ll see they just almost seem to make up a dipper constellation….
The original painting has sold, but we have prints & canvases available on my website.  The 78 Tarot “Mythical” deck should go into production at some point in 2018.
Limited Edition Canvas Prints are SOLD OUT. However, we have now released the Open Edition Remarqued Canvas Prints – they are truly the next best thing. They are the same high quality canvases stretched on boards & ready to hang, but are open edition. This means that they are not numbered, not dated, not signed by Jasmine, not embellished by Jasmine in paint. They are however remarqued with metallic ink on the front with the official JBG seal/remarque (as shown in the photo), and come with a Certificate of Authenticty signed by Jasmine herself. The open edition canvases are shaped a bit differently than the sold-out Limited Editions, they are 12″x16″ and are on thicker stretcher boards, so they are a bit deeper. Open Edition Canvases ship from our Kansas location.

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with archival inks. A small white border is included around the printed area of the artwork. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.

Open Edition Canvas Prints

These prints are made on canvas with archival inks and varnished with a UV resistant finish. They are gallery-wrap style — wrapped on boards, stretched over a frame and are shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. We only release these open edition canvases once Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvases have been sold out. The open edition canvases are on deep gallery wrapped boards. The Open Editions are set to a specific size format and there may be some cropping around the edges from the original artwork. NOTE: The watermark in the image is only for digital display and does not appear in the originals or prints.
