UPDATE: New Oil Painting Work In Progress

I was inspired to paint this from my excursions in the the wetlands of South Georgia also known as the Okefenokee. 

Land of the trembling waters. Where Herons soar and Lotus bloom.

Where the sun creates magic and sparkle atop the dark mysterious waters. A land untamed by human hands, filled with the aroma of tannic water, sounds of unseen live. As my canoe glides along the watery path the lily pads and water grasses dance in the ripples. A heron flies up and out of sight.

This is an original oil painting

The dimensions are  36 inches tall and 24 inches wide (91.4  x 61 Centimeters)

 

This painting is finished , you can now see it and purchase it


 

So I am starting a new larger painting. This is going to be a 36 inches tall and 24 inches wide painting. 
The mood will be twilightish, dark water and red / yellow sunset colors.

There are white lotus in the foreground, a blue heron flies in to the picture from right to left and there will be wonderful reflection on black water.

I am an independent, self supporting artist and Renaissance woman, working full time on my art. 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. My original paintings are on ginettecallaway.com My art prints are on ginetteprints.com and over 1000 pieces or art prints, that includes some of my earlier work and many abstract pieces are on http://www.imagekind.com/artists/GinetteCallaway/all/fine-art-prints
