The Ghostly, Mythic, Tarot & Fairy Tale musings of Lisa Hunt

Almost there.

Over 3 years and about 2,000 cups of coffee later, here we are down to the wire.
Bird on a wire that is. Why has the Winged Enchantment Oracle taken so long?

These are not small “tarot” card paintings. This effort has been big, bold and beautiful, with impressive size dimensions. Each painting is a stand alone fine arts story. As a collection, the paintings come together stylistically as an homage to the magical world of birds as seen and felt through human interpretation. It wasn’t just about painting birds it was about establishing a soulful connection with these marvelous multi-dimentional creatures. Birds hold a substantial place in our psyches. They are far more than fixtures in mythos, they are part of who we are.

For the past few months, I’ve made a concerted effort to spread the work out over many watercolor boards. This is to help avoid stagnation, burn-out and any other end-of-journey peril that may infilitrate the creative flow. This seemingly expedient effort is not necessarily the voice of economics, it is a way to hum things along and keep everything fresh and alive. The last paintings in a collection should never be anything but at least as good as your first ones!
