Milk Thistles and Bees

Milk Thistles and Bees – Medicinal Plants

12 inches by 9 inches Watercolor & Ink on Watercolor Paper
Frame and Mat not included.

Medicinal plants is something I have been studying and have a great interest in my whole life. This was instilled in me by my grandmother. Healing plants are all over the world, most people just don’t realize it. So I never refer to them as weeds.

The medicinal power of Milk Thistle is proven. I also think it is a very beautiful plant and it attracts bees.

I find it sad that many large wild meadows disappear, so I was happy to see a nearby community called Serenbe Georgia, creating and preserving natural places. On my next trip I will have to explore the wildflower meadow and linger there for a while.

You can also see a video of this with me talking about art and this particular herb.

How I create my watercolor & ink paintings: “I first do most of the ink work. I do not pre draw anything. I go straight to work with various nib sizes and dipping ink. The objective is to be loose and painterly. After establishing the ink lines I use watercolor to create shadow and light and vibrant colors, I work in layers. There is no erasing whatsoever, so everything even inks droplets that may fall are part of the art. Incidentals like ink drops are some of my favorite parts. Finally I add more ink lines to enhance certain areas in the painting. I then sign in ink and voila!”

Savannah Bird Girl pink Moon Impressionist oil painting by Ginette Callaway

Strawberry Moon. My latest larger oil painting turned out just as I envisioned.

This is how it goes sometimes. I start out with an idea a place, a scene in my head and then I begin my painting.

Most of the time I sketch out what I see in my minds eye. The tree is over there, the time of day suggests the light. Is it dawn, is it sunset, is it foggy and so on. Are there animals in the scene? Where are they? 

Are there people, most of the time not. Not in my paintings. I like to be the invisible observer of places when there is nobody there. At least not in visible form, in spirit we are all everywhere at all times. Everything and everybody is connected.

That old saying “If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody there to hear it, does it make a sound”? comes to mind.

So in my paintings of the wetlands, the Okefenokee, the Florida Suwanee river, Savannah Bird Girl, the trees you will almost always find life, just not physical people.

In my latest piece I was inspired by the “Pink April Moon”. In case you missed it. Yes the moon was pink this past April 11th, 2017
This full moon was furthest from the earth and the moon was in Libra. The pink moon also called Strawberry moon and a few other names, but I like Pink Moon and Strawberry Moon, it congers up positive feelings and even sweet tastes.

So in my “Garden of Good and Evil” the good prevails with the power of the pink moon radiating throughout the my painting. 
The “Bird Girl” of Savannah a steadfast witness holding her bowls of seeds for the birds, this time most of them, were eaten by the songbirds.

Naming them Savannah Bird Girl or Garden of Good and Evil after the famous book “Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil” written by John Berendt and published by Random House in January 1994.
