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

Finished Kingfisher-Shapeshifter, works-in-progress, and colorful inspiration

| October 11, 2013

Here’s the finished Kingfisher-Shapeshifter watercolor painting. I actually started painting this piece while I was sick—and kind of dragged my feet in the process. But I found comfort in the soothing waters I was rendering with paintbrush. The act of painting served as a form of healing visualization. It helped bring my body and mind into balance, just like the elements of this piece. Art has been a reliant therapy on so many levels for me. It helps keep my engines tuned-up…

Ghosts & Spirits Tarot Trailer

| September 7, 2012

Believe it or not, I studied Computer Animation in the 1990s. Back then, it was an adventurous pursuit for the few brave who dared to make it their major in Art School. I was already trained in traditional art, but was fascinated by the prospects of bringing art to animated life.

Two more works-in-progress, Ghosts & Spirits Tarot in review, and more from Fairy Tale Corners

The other day I accidently stumbled on a bird nest with two eggs inside. I felt terrible that I had inadvertenly disturbed what I feel is sacred territory, but much to my delight a third egg appeared the next day with attendent mama grackle watching nearby…

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…

Daydreaming with Loon

| August 7, 2011

I was and still am a daydreamer. What does that oft misunderstood term mean to me? For me, it’s about letting my foot dangle in the cool waters of dream imagery–where the slightest, most unassuming thing can initiate a fit of daydreaming, active imagination, and fantasizing. Basically, when I’m not drawing, painting or writing, I’m thinking about drawing, painting and writing, at least on a subconscious level…

Creativity, critters, chaos and the boogie woogie

| February 10, 2011

2011 is turning into the year of the unexpected. Instead of fearing the chaos of what seems like truncated routines, I’m learning how to accept the unexpected and to be flexible. Part of this has entailed taking on projects and creating images that I never thought I’d do: new subject matter, new methods, bold creative assertions and a sense of the spontaneous along the way.

Dream Ghosts, Pain & Shakespeare

| September 17, 2010

The Ghost of Banquo came to me in a dream. I saw him with vacant eyes and a wise aura. I saw stillness and movement all at once and it dominated my unconscious. It was as though The Ghost of Banquo was trying to tell me something—a prescient figure with an important message…

Chronicles of Connor Part 3

| August 6, 2010

As the summer vacation winds down, so will Connor’s long drawing sessions in the studio. I don’t teach Connor how to draw–he just sits at his desk and lets bustling creative ideas flood onto paper. He is insatiable with paper and pencil. Once in a blue moon he’ll ask me a question such as “Mom, how do you draw a woman (cyborg influence, of course)?” or “Mom, how do you show a spaceship from the underside as it stretches into a blackhole?”…

My 15 year journey with tarot: a retrospective

| May 29, 2010

2010 is nearly halfway over. Can you believe it? I can’t! It recently dawned on me that I did my first tarot painting 15 years ago. So much has happened since. I’ve grown from a young idealist to a middle-aged idealist. My life has changed, my art has changed, but the basic core of who I am has never been compromised

The Chronicles of Connor Part II (photos courtesy Jonathan Hunt 2010)

| March 8, 2010

Here are a few photos of my 9 year old “apprentice” at a recent “Feel the Groove” event at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, a place he’s bent on attending someday. He drew and painted in front of a live audience and did it with poise and ease. And for painfully shy people like […]
