Flying free as a bird–the power of sketching

| August 20, 2013

For the past few weeks, I’ve been flying free as a bird through the power of sketching. These gut-driven swoops of the pencil help to break the mental sound barriers allowing ideas to spill over into consciousness…

Raven has lingered the longest!

| July 18, 2013

I am no stranger to Raven and its mythological stature. I’ve collected stories and sketched the corvus for as long as I can remember. No wonder— It is a rather omnipresent bird in folktale tellings and has an almost divine position in the mythos spectrum…

Dealing with the Chaos Monster

| May 30, 2013

I pride myself on consistency, efficiency and productivity, but April-May turned out to be a long dance with the Chaos Monster. Not all chaos is negative, sometimes we need this kind of whirling energy to get things done! At other times It adds to life’s challenges that call for one to prioritize and sacrifice the illusion of perfection…

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…

| March 8, 2013

No two days are ever the same in my humble studio. Nothing is really planned except a cup of coffee. Sometimes I work on art orders for lisahuntart.com, other days I work on my blog or mingle with my online buddies. But if I get sucked into a total art-focused groove that pretty much takes over the brain, overshadowing all else until I express what needs to be expressed…

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.

I applied mascoid to the finished drawing (a mask that helps protect the white of the paper) and proceeded with watercolor washes. *********************************************************************************************** Quick update on Ghosts & Spirits Tarot, a deck that is receiving rave reviews by respected professionals and diehard fans (and I’ve been told is selling well too!). Thank you everyone for all […]

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.
