Ginny’s inspiration comes from spending her summers in Seal Cove, Maine at her grandparents cottage on Mount Desert Island. Coastal Maine and subject matter has been the main focus of Ginny’s paintings for many years. Be it a lobster boat, sailboat, pine tree, the ocean, or sunset, the inspiration is endless and she never tires painting them as it is ever changing throughout the day.
“Capturing the essence is what’s it’s all about. What made you stop and paint it? That’s what’s most important”. She likes to capture the mood, energy and light in a painting which is best done by painting plein air. “Painting outside forces one to paint quickly and capture the moment most effectively”. She also enjoys painting in her studio where she can get creative by adding gels and mediums for added texture.
