Description Impressionist portrait of Ben Hogan. The name the Wee Ice Mon was coined during the 1953 British Open Golf Tournament.~~~~~Ben Hogan did not like course of which the Scottish were very proud. So Hogan and the people of Scotland got off on the wrong foot... at first. But William Benjamin Hogan played such a fantastic game in a manner that enamored the masses. They started to call him 'The Wee Ice Mon'!~~~~~He won the 1953 British Open in Scotland and all that after only 4 years after a horrific car crash that should have killed him.Hogan is one of those people that movies are made about and they actually did make a movie called'Follow The Sun' in 1951 with Anne Baxter as his wife and Glenn Ford as Hogan.
Ginette Callaway, Lovejoy Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement I am an independent, self supporting artist, working full time on my art. Full time means about on average 12 hours a day seven days a week. This is how I pay my bills. However I absolutely love what I do. Creating art consumes me. I paint original art with oil paints, watercolors, also ink and pastel. Additionally I use the photos of my art or scans to create mixed media, where I use digital tools to layer texture or change the colors of these original paintings. Not a day goes by where I don't create something new.
If you want an original painted just for you, contact me. I take requests on my website.

I was born in Alsace France and from childhood on, I had Art and a Love for Nature and beauty in my blood. In my younger years I traveled and saw a bit of the world. After moving to the Unites States I became a full time artist with collectors from all over the world.
