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 My main body of work consists of my Original Paintings in Oil & Watercolor and some Acrylics. You will also find modern graphic designs and abstract art. Before picking up the brush and getting myself messy with paint, my ultimate passion, I worked in graphic designs. On occasion I still like to sit in my design studio using my graphics software to create, it's a whole different approach. I incorporate parts of my original paintings or alter them to get something totally different.
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.
