Dealing with the Chaos Monster

| May 30, 2013

I pride myself on consistency, efficiency and productivity, but April-May turned out to be a long dance with the Chaos Monster. Not all chaos is negative, sometimes we need this kind of whirling energy to get things done! At other times It adds to life’s challenges that call for one to prioritize and sacrifice the illusion of perfection…

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…

The finished Duck-Shapeshifter, a messy palette and good news for Ghosts & Spirits Tarot.

| March 27, 2013

The Duck-Shapeshifter is reflective and quiet. It was painted with lachrymose intent enhanced by expressive faces hidden in the elements. I know for myself, sometimes stressful situations actually help fuel the art-making process. It starts when emotions well up inside and provide a zestful energy that is vital for soulful creative output. I think for me, art has been an unwavering friend that helps me keep things in perspective…

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 […]

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 Finished Robin-Shapeshifter Painting & the First Signs of Spring

| March 16, 2012

Yes, Florida has seasons though the one’s I experience here in South Florida are subtle and less dramatic than other corners of the world. But having been a resident of the subtropics for a good portion of my adult life, I am familiar with the harbingers that signal new cycles. As April approaches…

Ghosts & Spirits Tarot going to press!

| October 28, 2011

When the fed ex guy dropped off a fat box from my art director at U.S. Games, my happy dance alarm threw me into a whirl as I quickly tore into its contents. Out came the final Ghosts & Spirits Tarot manuscript, card back designs, card art and the long-awaited cover designs. It is hard to describe how one feels when one first lays eyes on pieces of production, but it is similar to seeing one’s artwork or earned award newly framed and hanging on the wall…
