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…

How do you define Success? – Part 1

| February 17, 2012

I’ve never really thought about what it means to be “successful”. To me, it’s a concept loaded with complexities relative to time, place and personal philosophies. I think most would agree that success serves as a personal measuring device built on how we handle challenges and situations that test our fortitude and will…

A Fun Day at the Museum

| August 2, 2010

I have always loved going to museums and am lucky enough to live in an area where there is plenty to see. This past Spring we treated ourselves to an M.C. Escher show at the Boca Museum of Art. A few hours through the labyrinth of amazingness resulted in a season full of creative inspiration…

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

Making the Journey out and in

| July 4, 2009

The Moody Blues record albums were a staple during my early college years. To me, their songs reminded me of mythic journeys and inspired some of my earliest works. And most often, the paintings were not based on academic application, but rather they served as a conduit for inner feelings and the compulsion to tell fairy tales, myths and legends via the paintbrush…

The intrepid artistic fool I am: My journey through tarot and a decade of artistic exploration.

| June 21, 2009

In 1994, I was asked to create sample art for my first deck, Shapeshifter Tarot. Back then, I was the intrepid newbie 20-something year old artist, full of dreams and fresh from recent children’s book publication, book and magazine work and a few oddities in between. I was open to anything and a tarot deck sounded like just the thing needed to satiate my longterm ambitious artistic palette and unwavering interest in myths, legends and tarot cards…

The end of a creative cycle and seasons anew: The days after finishing The Fairy Tale Tarot

| June 1, 2009

The past month has been full of changes. It marked the end of a prolonged drought here in the tropics, it introduced the reality (ala Kindergarten orientation day) that my daughter is no longer a baby but a little girl whose about to spread her academic wings, it was about watching my almost 9 year old son earn his brown belt in TKD after many years of intense training, it’s about having just reacquainted myself with a childhood friend I haven’t spoken to in 33 years…

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…

Spring is in the Air: renewal, surprises, hope and a first glimpse of the Summer Queen

| March 7, 2009

It has been a strange winter season, even here in Florida with radically fluctuating temperatures and a prolonged drought making gardening plans haphazard at best. But as the mid-march air begins to warm up and rainy season (thankfully) draws near, there is a sense of renewal in the air.

Being the Fool and all the tricksters along the way…

| March 1, 2009

I am the fool and frankly I make no apologies for it. Despite having earned my black belt in TKD, I have retained a white-belt mind—and a white-belt mind is a humble one that realizes anything can happen. I approach my life and day with an innocence that is both creative and compromising…
