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

Birthday blog day! The last three drawings of a three year project.

| January 13, 2014

Today I turn age 47. What was I doing 20 years ago? I was working on my very first deck project, the Shapeshifter Tarot. Since then I’ve navigated through many creative oceans and have squeezed through many tubes of paint. I’m not as idealistic, but I’m wiser. I’m not as indefatigable, but I’m fluent and efficient…

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?

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…

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…

The finished Goose-Shapeshifter painting, pelican in progress and nurturing creativity in the home.

| November 9, 2012

“I am the Goose, the mysterious guardian of migrations everywhere. I am the soul who travels. I am the quest within. If you are stagnating today, it may be time to seek warmer pastures. It may be the call to a journey, the same journey that marks the beginning of every great story ever told. I may inspire a road trip, or open your eyes to those wide open spaces on the other side of the fence. But whichever ways I lead you, you will never return home the same.” ~Lesley Morrison…

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.

The finished Dove-Shapeshifter painting, shorter days and autumnal skies

| October 4, 2012

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 […]

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…

“Birdie” and The Story of Thumbelina

| April 29, 2010

The other day, we found a shivering baby bird on our front step. We looked up at the nest built over one of our hurricane shutters and assumed the worst. We gently picked up the fragile creature and examined it for injuries. Miraculously, other than being half-scared-to-death, it looked fine! Putting it back…
