DescriptionOriginal Painting by GinetteI painted this because the Episode of Criminal Minds Exit Wound is one of those that really spoke to me. Especially the involvement of Garcia in the story line, and how she was there when a man dies as she spoke in comfort to him. At the end of the story she questions how she can continue to do this job and not lose who she is. I can relate to that very much. I am an activist for animals and I see lots of horrors in how animals are treated behind the curtains, there is so much suffering. Almost every day I do something to try to bring change and alleviate some of that suffering, I look at reports, video, photos, write letters to my representatives, call the Whitehouse, call my senators, sign petitions, look at more undercover footage, and blog or call some more. I walk that fine line of trying to remain strong in order to keep doing it and avoiding becoming jaded, because its so hard to see all the suffering and not shut down. I see all that in her. In the last scene, she talks to Morgan and he comforts her, it is a very powerful moment. Indeed she has many reasons not to become jaded. A Friend like Morgan who is a TRUE Friend who really understand who she is. If you have one of those, that is lots to be said for. His promise to protect her from becoming jaded and make sure she remains who she is, its more than just a promise to her. It is symbolism, to protect that, that reminds us of what can be, not just what is. The innocence and childlike dream of beauty, that high dream that some retain, so rare yet so important to all of us. Its like that flower that blooms in winter!

Quality Reproductions from my Original Paintings in Oil, Watercolor or Acrylics. I was born in Alsace France and from childhood on, I had Art and a Love for Nature in my blood. After moving to the Unites States I became a full time artist with collectors from all over the world. My roots are in impressionism. The style I developed comes from studies of the masters of Impressionism to the great trailblazers of modern art like Picasso. Some of my favorites are Nicolai Fechin & Van Gogh as well as Picasso, who could never be put in to a nice little box. From them I learned to follow my own drum beat and never stagnate but always start each painting as a new adventure. You won't see cookie cutter paintings here. Each painting is unique. ~Ginette
