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

The finished Blackbird-Shapeshifter & Snapshots of the Studio

| August 6, 2013

I am blackbird, the enchantress of the soul. I am melodious and hypnotic, and lure the curious heart toward the hidden worlds. I will silence the mind and allow spirit to creep into awareness. I break through the boundaries, cracking whatever separates you from eternity…

“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…

The Fairy Tale Tarot is finished: smooth sailing through the production process and “blogging without obligation”

| May 12, 2009

I recently read a refreshing blog entry by the luminous Lunaea Weatherstone. In her latest post, she had embraced the philosophy “Blogging Without Obligation”. This instantly resonated with me because I think as time goes on, too many blogs are becoming regimented forums that are void of true spontaneous inspiration. My favorite artist/writer blogs tend to be ones that reflect inspiring moments that transcend routine…

Toiling away the Three Little Pigs Way

| February 1, 2009

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a pretty resourceful woman. I grew up in an environment where being hands-on with sundry tasks was part of the childhood experience—this included helping expand and remodel my parents’ house.

Frost King, stepmothers and keeping your cool

| December 27, 2008

The Frost King as King of Pentacles was a really fun painting to do partly because I love to draw spirits (and this one was done with some spontaneous flourishes—ice and snow are fun to paint using watercolors) and partly because I was eager to capture the resilience of the little girl who maintained decorum and courage in the face of impending doom.

Reconnecting with my wild horse spirit: Lessons learned in a Taekwondo dojo from white belt mind to black belt confidence

| December 7, 2008

After a somewhat sedentary existence following the birth of my daughter, I was cajoled by my son Connor’s Taekwondo Master to take a non-obligatory trial class. Here I was, a chubby post partum mom staring impending middle age in the face and I was being coerced into a situation that I was less than enthusiastic about…
