The Finished Peacock-Shapeshifter — A Reflection On An Inner World (Also: Take a peak at Kyra’s glam rock robot)

| April 24, 2013

“The peacock as a totem shares the wisdom of self-esteem. This is not to be confused with ego pride, but rather the recognition of self-worth as a divine being. Peacock summons you to “walk the talk” and share your gifts and inner beauty with the world in a peaceful and joyful way.”~ Lesley Morrison, author The Healing Wisdom of Birds…

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…

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.

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…

New time-lapse video!

| August 5, 2012

It has been a while since I produced a time-lapse video and felt compelled to create one for my current project. Chickadee-Shapeshifter was a piece that was painted over a week’s time while various jazz works filled my studio with its energetic presence…

Hawk-Shapeshifter, Building Bridges and Banishing the Stage Fright Phantom

| June 9, 2012

The beginning of June ushers in huge sighs of relief. The intensity of Springtime activities gives way to the more layed back sounds of summer as music recitals and school finals become fixtures of a more punctuated period gone by. Now everyone can purge old papers and move on to fresh music and clean canvases, […]

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

| May 25, 2012

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…

The Fool, the Piano and a Phantom Called Stage Fright

| May 26, 2011

I love the piano. To me, the keys are allegorical. They are emotive, mysterious, scary and can be a girl’s best friend. They can feel hard and cold, slippery and wet, warm and soft–all depending on what is being played and how it’s being played.

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.

Music inspires art, art inspires music

| June 21, 2010

When is the last time you heard a song that transported you back to a book you were reading, or a romance you were experiencing or a painting that you were working on? For me, music awakens the senses in ways that deliver immediate imagery…
