Drawing a different kind of strength

I’m still fascinated by the Tarot.  This drawing is of “Strength”, one of the figures in the Major Arcana.

This card stands for a different kind of strength than that one usually thinks of. ” Perseverance, courage, resolve and composure – qualities that help us endure when times are tough.”   Patience and tolerance, guiding rather than using force, compassion and reliability.

This card is usually depicted as a woman subduing a lion, and here is my version.

    Thanks! I always dither for ages about colour choices. The blessing and curse of working digitally – too many possibilities.
