Description Original 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!
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.
