The watercolorist Ashfield creating a new deck of Tarot cards

The hills of Franklin County inspire various forms of belief and creative endeavor. To my knowledge, Laurel Thorndike's work is unique in our area.

This Ashfield watercolorist is creating a deck of tarot cards using visual themes related to the Day of the Dead, the Day of the Dead. This Mexican party, which is rapidly becoming popular in the United States, falls on November 1 and 2. Those who celebrate believe that the dead return to earth once a year these days.
Mexicans welcome their relatives and friends who died in early November with traditional images, including skeletons and brightly dressed skulls and brightly colored flowers, particularly marigolds. I spoke with Thorndike recently about the tarot cards and about his work in general.

The artist, whose maiden name is Clark, grew up in Heath. "I always drew and painted," he told me. "My mother used to draw and color with us children and I think that's where it all began ...

"I started drawing horses a lot in high school, again, I think it was an influence of my mother, who always rode horses."

As he grew as an artist, Thorndike recalled, he moved away from the horses and began to draw and paint fantastic and mythical creatures. She likes to explore traditional folk tales as well; she is fascinated by Little Red Riding Hood.

The artist went on to study with artist Julie Hall Rocke for many years. Thorndike has also taken a master class in the illustration. He recently created the cover of the novel "Hearken to Av a l o n" by the local author Arianna Alexsandra Collins.

When he began his research on the tarot, Thorndike discovered an inconvenience for the project. "I did not realize at that time (I assumed the commission) that a tarot deck contains 78 images," he admitted sadly.

She and the Roths decided to split their deck into two sections. Thorndike began to illustrate the 22 Major Arcana cards (approximately equivalent to face cards in a traditional deck of cards) in 2014. They have been completed and are being sold throughout the United States, he reported.
