Savannah Bird Girl Painting

Savannah Bird Girl Painting. 

It is summer in the garden of good and evil and the warm summer sun illuminates the Savannah Bird Girl as her rays break through the branches of an old oak tree.

As the sky is above, so it is reflected below, in the shimmering mirror like waters of this garden. The bird girl balances her bowls while the wind carries the fragrance of honeysuckle, so sweet that no other aroma or odor can penetrate. It is a peaceful summer day in the Garden of Good & Evil.

Savannah Georgia with all it’s mystery and history!

Moonlight In The Garden of good and Evil

Work In Progress 20 x 20 inch Moonlight in The Garden of good & Evil with Savannah Bird Girl

Painting is an oil as a  20 x 20 inch piece of one of my famous subjects. The infamous Bird Girl has by now come alive. She has gone from being a mere statue that graced the cover of John Berendt’s book Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil to a girl holding bird seed bowls as if they are scales measuring good and evil. I am continuing to paint her in my own garden of good & evil and make her come alive. 

I prepared the canvas with my custom gesso made of plaster of paris, gel and marble dust.

 

 

Here is first picture. Paintings is not finished yet. But then they are never finished just abandoned! Who said that?

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.
