Description Love seeketh not Itself to please---Nor for itself hath any care;---But for another gives its ease,---And builds a Heaven in Hells despair.---So sang a little Clod of Clay,---Trodden with the cattle's feet;---But a Pebble of the brook,---Warbled out these metres meet.------Love seeketh only Self to please,---To bind another to Its delight:---Joys in anothers loss of ease,---And builds a Hell in Heavens despite------The Clod and the Pebbleby William Blake (1757-1827)
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.
My website is ginettecallaway.com
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.
