Lady of July
The Lady of July bears the Larkspur and dons the stone of Ruby. The Larkspur represents an open heart, while the Ruby will bring her love and passion.
She ushers in a time of freedom and celebration.
10×20 inches, watercolors and ink with genuine 22k gold leaf accents.
Artist’s Comments: Lady of July takes inspiration from the from the many festivals of July that celebrate freedom. From Bastille Day to America’s Independence Day, July is a time for free spirits and aspirations!
I also drew upon the imagery of the Tanabata star festival of Japan and Qixi of China which take place during this month. Both holidays celebrate the only time of year in which two celestial lovers are able to see each other.
