Description This Abstract Mixed Media painted in Watercolor, Ink and Pastel was inspired by the Toulouse-Lautrec painting At The Moulin Rouge. Lautrec was fascinated with the Parisian scenes of bars and the Moulin Rouge and the nightlife of prostitutes he and his friends frequented. At the Moulin Rouge depicts some of his friends and some prostitutes. This is a slice of his painting the way I envisioned it. I love his dramatic use of green on the faces of the women.

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.
