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.

Heirloom Tomatoes Oil Painting

Tomatoes a perfect subject for a painting.

Heirloom Tomatoes Still Life

Have you seen this lovely ‪‎Heirloom ‪‎Tomato ‪‎Oil Painting?
I think it will make a great addition to a ‪‎country ‪‎kitchen.

Oh yes it’s not a grand landscape or a wonderful vista but a mundane image of Tomatoes. But what the world be without this marvelous fruit? These are the things in our daily lives we appreciate and for me they make good subject matter. Their curves, the color variations from deep red to orange, a bit of green and even bright yellow.
My paintings, at least according to my collectors, are better looking in person, then when first seen on a monitor.
The colors are vibrant, the texture of the ‪‎brushstrokes and the subtle smell of oil paint can never be 100% translated on a cold bright monitor.
Holding the real thing, will make it clear why owning original art is really special.
Prints are OK but an original will win your heart forever.

People say my style reminds them of ‪‎VanGogh‬, I can see why. I appreciate such a great compliment even though I believe I do have my own unique style.
I study and examine his work whenever I can. Seen many of his pieces at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He definitely was one of those that gave me the courage to use ‎bold‬ ‪‎colors‬.
