There is a certain beauty in paint tubes. Especially used ones. Each one is different. I am a messy artist when it comes to my paint tubes. It’s not a virtue, I know. I don’t wipe the tops before closing.
I get attached to these tubes. Sometimes I keep them around even after they are spend. Here are a few of the brands I use. Some of them are kinda expensive for me.  But I love the quality so I buy them in hopes that buyers will appreciate the quality materials I use. Pigments are much richer and lighfast as well. 

Art prints sold to set designers for gone

I already love the TV show GONE … here is why !

Well today I sold six art prints from my galleries on ginetteprints.com 
That’s is fantastic. Wish every day was a six prints day.

These art prints will hopefully be used in an upcoming TV series called “Gone”! Gone is an American procedural drama series. I dig these type of shows anyway. 
TV shows and movies have what’s called set design and they use art in the design process. They license art or as in my case purchase prints, and later may or may not use them. You can read more about the show here: click on this link. Full cast and info on IMDB

The show is an international production by NBC Universal International and will be shot in Pittsburgh. Joining NBC as partners in the production are expected to be Germany-based RTL and TF1, based in France. 

Based on the novel One Kick by Chelsea Cain, the drama “tells the fictional story of Kit “Kick” Lannigan (Leven Rambin), survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Booth (Chris Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her.” 

So when I was approached by this company about art and read about the story of GONE, I was all ears. Sounds like it’s going to be a great plot and story to tell. As a survivor of child abuse, I relate to such stories. Child abuse survivor stories like this one I have to watch! I understand the main character becomes a martial arts expert and enters the FBI to work on abductions cases. Whatever happen to you in life, if it doesn’t kill you it will make you stronger. That’s for sure!

Art prints sold to set designers for gone

So set designers look for art. Set designers are in charge of, well…. designing sets for scenes in movies or TV shows. What they do is an artform in itself, creating the mood or background for a scene, character for the story that is being told. It’s very cool.

So they need art to hang on walls. I was approached about using my art and they ended up buying these prints today. I was told the set designer loves my work. Not sure why these paintings were specifically picked, but they are innocent and whimsical floral paintings and maybe that is why. One is an oil “On The Way To Grandma There Is A Tree I Love”!
So maybe one or all will end up somewhere on the set of “Gone”! I hope so and I hope I get more opportunities like this.

 

 

 

If you are going to watch that show and see my art let me know, I will be tickled to death about it.
Shoot me a message    
I really want to see if I can follow this show. I don’t have cable so maybe they will have it on Amazon. I hope so.                      
If you are a set designer and are looking for art contact me. I am always willing to work with new clients!

Hummingbird Oil Painting Sold. Painting Sister Painting Commission

Here are some pictures. The colors I am working with are 
Williamsburg: Cadmium Red Medium, Hazy Blue, German Earth, Cobalt Yellow, Cobalt Teal, Cobalt Turquoise, French Terra Verte, Provence Violet, Anise, and of course Titanium White from Blick.

I am also filming but it will take some doing to get it all together and uploaded since my computer isn’t handling that much data too well. So in order to stay focused on the painting and not get sidetracked with video tech issues, I won’t post video until the commission is completed. I’ll post more pictures.

So here is the sketch for the 2nd painting. I decided to put two hummingbirds into this one. There are poppy heads in it and some lavender.

Sketch for Hummingbirds and Poppies and Lavender

I darkened the photo a bit. The sketch is very light on teh paper and did not show well. So to show it better and had to darken it.
 

 

Happy to announce that my oil on paper sold a couple of days ago.
Wonderful collector from Orlando snapped it up during my Spring sale.

She also asked me to paint a sister piece that will hang next to it.
It will be a 18 inch wide and 24 inch tall oil painting on paper.

I am totally excited to begin. I decided to purchase a few extra tubes of Williamsburg paint since that is the type of paint I used to the first one.

 
I prefer Williamsburg to almost any other paint but it is expense. Well you really get what you pay for.  

I ordered them Wednesday and had them shipped overnight express so they just arrived. Here is a picture of the new German Earth, Cadmium red medium, French Terra Verte, and Cobalt Turquoise Greenish.

 

Some of my older, some almost empty tubes of Williamsburg paint.
Check out the Williamsburg website for more information on this excellent paint.
They don’t pay me or give me any discount for saying that!

Williamsburg Handmade Oil Paintings

So today is my promotions day and tomorrow I am going to develop the new painting.

I had a wonderful conversation with my client that gave me a good idea what she likes and she is great in that she gives me all the creative freedom I need to make the new painting a success. So I’ll  go for a painting that will harmonize with the one she bought but be different at the same time.
This is the one she bought.

 

 

Here is me painting it. Watch and like my channel. Subscribe to my channel on youtube, for new videos.

Dreaming of Provence Watercolor and Ink by Ginette

Georgia Summer can be a heatstroke in the making.

About two weeks ago I was rudely reminded why I really don’t like to live in a hot climate (unless it’s right by the ocean of course)

 My air-conditioner about 28 years old started to not cool and freeze up all the time. Eventually air conditioning man put some more coolant in it, no dice. Still not cooling. Air condition man comes back after a few phone calls and puts in more coolant, plus unit cleaning. Still not cooling.

 

So far I paid 800 dollars and still have no air conditioning. It puffs out lukewarm air. So now the verdict is “Need a new Unit” will cost around 5 grand. Just about now I want to crawl in to a hole. Make it a cave a real cool one. I miss the ‪temperate ‪‎German ‪‎summers that I remember.

‪‎Brick ‪‎houses make for cooler dwellings too. Most houses in ‪‎Germany are brick, cooler. ‪‎Grandma used to close the ‪‎shutters when it was hotter. No shutters on my rickety house, so the afternoon sun bakes the house.

Someone told me the weather in ‪‎Berkeley‪ ‎California is like that in Germany, mostly, temperate. But ‪‎Blairsville‪ Ga is about 10 degrees cooler than the rest of ‪‎Georgia too. Maybe I have to escape in to the mountains in summer, cats in tow.

But don’t they say the grass is always greener on the other side. I keep reminding myself of that, while looking forward to this huge cost that wasn’t in my budget. I hate Georgia Summers. Yesterday we had 106 degrees the next two weeks will be cooler “ONLY IN THE MID NINETIES” My house is an oven. Ice packs tied to my body have become my best friends.

Have I mentioned I ‪‎hate Georgia Summers. I think I have.

If you haven’t seen my latest original paintings I hope you will take a look at them, any purchase will help me pay for this new expense. You’re helping a self-supporting artist.
