Description Long Ago, there was a bird who sang just once in its life.---From the moment it left its nest, it searched for a thorn tree.---and it never rested until it found one.---Then it began to sing more sweetly---than any other creature on the face of the earth.---And singing, it impaled its breast on the longest, sharpest thorn.---But as it was dying, it rose above its own agony---to out-sing the lark and the nightingale.---The thorn bird pays its life for that one song---and the whole world stills to listen---and God, in His heaven smiles.---As its best was bought only at the cost of great pain.---Driven to the thorn, with no knowledge of the dying to come.---But when we press the thorn to our breast,---We know........---We understand.....---And still......we do it.
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.
