Description This is derived from my original oil painting that I photographed and then digitally altered. I painted the oil in heavy strokes with palette knife. By using an original oil and meshing it with the digital tools available to me I was able to create something totally different but still retain the oil paint feel. Unlike paintings totally done in digital media, I prefer to actually mesh real paint with the digital. The possibilities are endless which is fascinating for me as an artist. I have painted about 1500 original paintings oil and watercolor and some acrylics, I can create these derivative works until I am a 120 years old and still not run out of possibilities.If you would like to see my original paintings visit ginettecallaway.com
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.
