Ginette Callaway paints Jekyll Island Sunrise Amazing Modern Impressionism

I used to visit #Jekyll #Island off the #Georgia #Coast almost yearly about 20 years ago. I stopped doing it about ten years ago. The last time I went and stayed for a few days, was with my mother who visited from Germany. What I loved most about Jekyll Island was that it was very non touristy. There were only two restaurants and no stores other than a small convenient store. Everything you needed, you had to bring from the mainland, which suits me just fine, since I did the simple life thing. It was only about a 30 minute trip off the Island, to get everything you needed in #Brunswick Georgia.
It was great to find an affordable beach front hotel, even if it did have all the amnesties and there was no fast food place in walking distance, which too suited me just fine. You could get a decent room for under 100 or tops 120 dollars a night with view of the ocean. it was a poor man/women/s paradise back then.
All I wanted was a place to escape and relax away from the usual noise, yelling, running, music, and human entrainment activities that you often find on beaches. On Jekyll Island you felt thrown back in to a time of "before discovery" at least it felt that way.
Now Jekyll island has been developed and when I took a short trip a couple of years ago just to see I was shocked and left shortly.
Prices have shot through the roof and it's not affordable anymore for someone like myself.
There was still lots of construction and everything seemed to have changed. Where you once saw the ocean from the street there were now hills of sand piled up. A fast food place was being build. I guess we can't survive with at least one on every corner. A large convention center was build right by the ocean.
I said my goodbys and prefer to keep the memories of Jekyll Island from 15 or 20 years ago. I got to see the most beautiful sunrises just like in this painting. All you heard were the ocean, the wind, the seagulls, and you could see dolphins swimming and jumping off the coast. The trees all grow toward the land, blown by the Atlantic winds, that blow steadily, it all looks very unique. I walked the beach and there were few people. Loggerhead turtle tracks and driftwood and to my happy surprise NO litter, plastic bottles and other trash humans often throw down wherever they stand. It was a magical place. I'll miss you Jekyll Island!

Botanical Art Prints by Ginette

Plants and especially medicinal plants have been an interest of mine ever since I worded in the Pharmaceutical industry. I learned that just about all medicines are derived from the chemical/molecular structure of plants. From poppies to Acorns, Dandelions and Yarrow the plant world is a well of medicines. A fascinating field to study.

I paint a new plant and always read about that plants all I can do understand it's properties. Over the decades I have learned a lot and use medicinal plants regularly myslef. I don't take any pharmaceuticals anymore today which is also dues to my vegan lifestyle. Between the plants I eat and the medicinal plants I utilize, internally and externally, I haven't seen a doctor in years. Not even for a flue.

I buy my herbs at Botanical Spirit Shop Improving your physical, mental and spiritual state of "being" through the use of herbal seeds, bark, roots, flowers and foliage from plants that have been used medicinally for centuries; safely, naturally and effectively! I am presenting a collection of paintings I did over the years. These are available as reproductions. Please purchase as many as you can. For yourself or as a gift they make great art.

Monet having a Picasso Moment or Worse

Do you like a bit of wacky humorous or simply weird. This is for you. Definitely great for a child's room. Can be customized/ I did a whole series of what I call doodles, while I was spending days and hours at jury duty. You can contact me at ginette@ginettefineart.com if you like me to design custom work. Same for licensing.

These would also be great for a Psychiatrist office.  I think Freud would have fun interpreting these. 
This is not what I usually do but then I usually are not sitting in a courthouse waiting to be called as a juror. Such it was a few years back and I filled a little doodle book with drawing like this while I was waiting. I leave it up to the viewer to figure out my state of mind. Imagine Monet having a  Picasso Moment.

These products are customizable.


Right now there are Poster Prints and Pillows Available
