Green is a color



My first years were spent living just as my forefathers had lived-roaming the green, rolling hills of what is now the states of South Dakota and Nebraska.
Standing Bear (and myself)
An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight....the truly wise person is colorblind.
Albert Schweitzer
Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which it's loveliness arises.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
My eyes are green. Green is my favorite color-one would never know by looking at my artwork. I think this is a delayed reaction to spring-embracing cadmium greens! It's a difficult color to work with, the shades are endless and can go "off" into unknown ghastly directions. ARE their really more shades of green then blue, is this a trick of nature? Even Kermit the frog from Sesame Street sang "It's not easy being' green". It's so prefect out in the natural world, but we artists find it a challenge to use, as least I do and I've spent decades trying to avoid it. The painting above started out a solid moss green, and ended up mostly white, maybe a reflection of my recent wandering! The patterned moss covered pathway was from the Chinese Garden in Portland.
