Watercolor Pink Poppies and pods

Pink Poppies Pods and Bees

Pink Poppies Pods and Bees

This is an 11 x 8.5 inches Original Watercolor and Ink on 300 pound arches Watercolor paper. Graceful Pink Poppies with fuzzy stems and curious pods. I used Arches paper, it is definitely one of the best and 300 pound is the heaviest for this size. When you buy original watercolor paintings you will want excellent grade paper, made specifically for long time collecting. 

This painting shows my typical approach to painting a simple floral watercolor and ink. Calligraphic ink lines, a whimsical feel but not too much. It is painted  in a lovely soft pink with some baby blue sky and olive green and yellow. Just as charming as can be.

I recommend you find a spot in your house, that is not in full sunlight, for this little but impact full painting. Don’t wait buy it now.

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!

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.

Classic Hollywood Joan Crawford Oil Painting by Ginette Callaway

The latest in my Classic Hollywood Series I started this series a long time ago and sold most back then. I have a couple of larger ones still stored away. I am now continuing the series.

It’s nice to have a change of pace sometimes and explore a different subject matter. But I do love old movies. I grew up on black and while thrillers and Love stories. I’ve been re-watching my favorites. These days you can see so many of them for free on YouTube. Not the best quality. But Netflix and Amazon prime have many. The best ones are still available on DVD’s or for rent.

Whatever it is about these movies and actors there is a certain mystery I guess. The black and white made for a different experience where light became a big player in creating drama, atmosphere and suspense. There were no “special effects” and not even color. Many of these actors came straight from the silent movies, where there wasn’t even sound. So there was a huge emphasis on facial expression and body language. I think that is where these movies and actors really shined. Especially Joan Crawford, watch her in “Sudden Fear” her eyes and her face just great.

Well I painted the one and only among others “Joan Crawford” the love to hate persona, but boy she was a great actress and nobody is all bad. She did have a good heart. I was surprised to read she was only 5 foot 3 inches tall.
