Autumn Migration Birds and Panoramic Landscape Oil Painting

This is such a gorgeous painting in person. I painted this with so much oil paint. No fillers all good rich oil painting of the highest quality. I used brushes and palette knifes. The trees is what I remember from growing up in Alsace France. Same in Germany where I lived later. The story goes that during hard times and war people used to cut off just the new branches for firewood.

They left the trunk and tree alive so it could later made new shoots and more fire wood. This is why these trees look like they do. You see them occasionally in VanGogh’s paintings as well.

Detail of Saint Francis Original Watercolor and Ink Painting by GInette Callaway

This painting is a 30 inch tall and 22 inch wide watercolor and ink on paper. It was commissioned by a collector from Pennsylvania.
I did as much research and reading on Saint Francis time wise as I did painting. it was important to me to have a good understanding of the man.

My client was overjoyed and loved the painting.

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.

Impressionism Wetland Oil Painting

Nouveau Impression Art by Ginette Land of the Trembling Waters

I was inspired to paint this from my excursions in the the wetlands of South Georgia also known as the Okefenokee. 

Land of the trembling waters. Where Herons soar and Lotus bloom.

Where the sun creates magic and sparkle atop the dark mysterious waters. A land untamed by human hands, filled with the aroma of tannic water, sounds of unseen live. As my canoe glides along the watery path the lily pads and water grasses dance in the ripples. A heron flies up and out of sight.

This is an original oil painting

The dimensions are  36 inches tall and 24 inches wide (91.4  x 61 Centimeters)

 

This painting is finished , you can now see it and purchase it
