Ginzie Oil company

 
 

Ginzie began her career as a self-taught geological cartographer, electro-mechanical draftsman, and technical illustrator.  In retrospect, this was an excellent background for life as a fine artist because of the emphasis on drawing and accuracy.  Her skill as a draftsman is much evident in the design and execution of her turn to fine art in 1980.  From power networks and aircraft to still lifes and figures is really not a big leap when you think of the planning and discipline involved in both.    

    One of her favorite things is research.  Upon seeing a movie about boxer James J. Braddock, she began scouring libraries about this very amazing and honorable young man, and decided a painting should be done to honor him, resulting in the 48x36" oil painting "The Comeback of James J. Braddock". She says it is one of her favorite paintings.

   "When I began painting, much to my surprise, I discovered I had a gift for portraiture, which enabled me to pay bills while embarking on this very demanding profession.  I also enjoy doing still lifes because of the colors and interesting shapes and textures.  In addition, I became interested in the Hopi culture through my acquaintance with a collector who was kind enough to allow me the use of his extensive collection, resulting in many paintings of their interesting dances and beautiful regalia.

   I must admit however, that as an avid gardener, flowers were the hardest thing for me to learn to paint since I wanted them to be loose enough to be interesting, but still  recognizable.  One of the most fun things to paint (and the most lucrative) is the lowly pansy.  The  bold colors and shapes are delightful and have become very popular."
