April I felt a little adventurous with. Took a Latin approach with the month title and had some fun with the art. Still had a mistake on one of the Saint days that I had to blot out. Overall I had fun with this one. April is my birth month so I decided to take a “Genesis” approach.
The sword has some imagery embedded in it that should be easy to pluck out. The Latin around the sword refers to the guarding of Eden with a “Sword of fire that shimmered this way and that”. The Body and Blood as well as the cross shape of the sword all point to the promise of Eden. Leaves of green refer to the tree of life.
In contrast is the serpent before being forced to crawl. Dead leaves of the tree of knowledge of good and evil surround the dragon in darkness and death. No gold leaf on this page.
