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

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…

Once again, the studio hums with life!

| June 16, 2011

Taking a month off from studio work was not easy to do, but it was essential. Not only did I clean up and organize my surrounds, but I unclogged the brain drain and allowed the mind to clear, cool and recover from years of pushing through my deadlines…

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…

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

“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 apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. My 9 year old’s triumphant move into my studio or The Chronicles of Connor part 1.

| January 30, 2010

I have grown accustomed to working alone in my studio (thus the name “Studio Hermit”), with only the company of NPR, music, and Timmy the cat aka “Studio Buddy” being the potential distractions to an otherwise intense environment. It never dawned on me to ask my 9 year-old artistically inclined son to join me in my sanctuary of creative outpourings…

I’m proud to announce my participation in two upcoming art show events, one to be held in New York City and the other right here in South florida…

Congratulations, Jeannette. Here she is with her prize!

| October 9, 2009

Jeannette of Studio Odd has kindly given me permission to post a photo of herself with her The Fairy Tale Tarot giveaway prize. She wrote: “the box arrived today  .. thank you so much. I love the no borders on the cards and your work is beautiful.” Again, Congratulations Jeannette! In the coming weeks, I […]

In the throes of an intense painting season (with “studio buddy” at my side)

| October 1, 2009

It has been a while since I’ve written a life-as-an-artist post. The past few months have been a flurry of The Fairy Tale Tarot promotion (something that has been a fun experience!), getting kids ready for another school year, tying up long neglected loose ends including painting bookshelves, purging clutter and prepping seedlings for the […]
