Part of Rachel's Rodeo Tarot series. A playful interpretation of the Princess of Swords card. "The Princess of Swords is the tarot archetype representing a strategic young woman with a razor sharp intellect that lacks the appropriate confidence to execute her plans for power," explains Rachel. "She can be cold, manipulative and smart." Many small details bring the character to life, including her knife, fur-lined purple robe, crown and pet owl, and the surrounding mountains, sun and border of prancing horses.
For Rachel Srinivasan, an idea is worth putting on a canvas only if it still feels exciting after a few days. Rachel enjoys mulling the idea over in her mind for some time before creating an artwork. She hopes viewers will engage with her work and wonder about the subject matter, shapes and colors. “My current work is all about creating a connection between the person on the canvas with the viewer,” she explains. She prefers large paintings and sometimes even makes her own canvases. She currently lives in Arizona and enjoys baking rhubarb pies, reading, running and going to art museums.
