Dynamic Dreamer ~ Art Weaver

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

Winged Enchantment work-in-progress, Victoria’s Adventure and what the kids are doing.

| July 1, 2013

Winged Enchantment series is more like a fine artist’s dream than a rushed illustrator’s pile of worries. After what seems like a lifetime of one endless deadline, I am finally realizing the pure joy of doing art without thinking much beyond a day in the life with my paintbrush…

The finished Duck-Shapeshifter, a messy palette and good news for Ghosts & Spirits Tarot.

| March 27, 2013

The Duck-Shapeshifter is reflective and quiet. It was painted with lachrymose intent enhanced by expressive faces hidden in the elements. I know for myself, sometimes stressful situations actually help fuel the art-making process. It starts when emotions well up inside and provide a zestful energy that is vital for soulful creative output. I think for me, art has been an unwavering friend that helps me keep things in perspective…

Happy New Year! ATA logo design, fixing this old house and getting organized for 2013

| January 9, 2013

A few months ago, the American Tarot Association approached me with an awesome assignment: Design a new logo that would encapsulates the idea of “community”. For me, the concept of community engenders simple beauty, connectivity and the capacity to feel compassion in the face of challenges and elation in the glow of another’s achievement…

Back from a break, new art, review and what the kids are doin’.

| December 21, 2012

For the first time since I started my blog 5 years ago, I took a month off from posting. I didn’t stop painting, I didn’t stop filling lisahuntart orders, I didn’t stop playing piano and I certainly didn’t stop being mom, family woman and friend. But I did have to prioritize and make sure that what I did have time for I did it well…

It was a good drawing week!

| October 18, 2012

After what felt like a slow dance with creative malaise, I rebounded this week and cranked out two drawings. These were ideas that had been simmering in my sketch folder for a while after initial attempts failed to yield satisfactory results.

Goals vs. deadlines, new pencil drawings and why I love to draw hands

| August 23, 2012

It’s catch up time! I’ve been taking things a little more slowly this month, with the kids going back to school, the specter of hurricanes, replenishing art supplies and catching up with paperwork. I also returned to the taekwondo dojo to get my physical mojo back in between practicing the piano…

The Finished Blue Jay-Shapeshifter Painting and More Cozy Corners

| April 13, 2012

April is one of those pivotal months during the year that mark a time of transition and preparation. I spent two weeks giving my house a deep spring cleaning as a way to purge the debris of a season gone by and to commemorate new beginnings and a period of creative fecundity ahead…

The Finished Robin-Shapeshifter Painting & the First Signs of Spring

| March 16, 2012

Yes, Florida has seasons though the one’s I experience here in South Florida are subtle and less dramatic than other corners of the world. But having been a resident of the subtropics for a good portion of my adult life, I am familiar with the harbingers that signal new cycles. As April approaches…

Hope Springs Eternal & Thoughts On Success – Part 2

| March 2, 2012

This week, I am grateful to have both new and old friends share their thoughts about how they define success. A few of these participants I’ve known for many, many years. They are testament to my growth as I am of theirs, having watched each other travel the bumpy roads that make our individual successes authentic and hard earned…

How do you define Success? – Part 1

| February 17, 2012

I’ve never really thought about what it means to be “successful”. To me, it’s a concept loaded with complexities relative to time, place and personal philosophies. I think most would agree that success serves as a personal measuring device built on how we handle challenges and situations that test our fortitude and will…
