Ahhhhh Green

I enjoyed very deliberately going after some grayed down greens in this oil study. Green is wonderful!

Study: Celeste Bergin, Riverbank tree, Oil on 6 x 9 canvas panel

Looks quiet in comparison to standard greens. I like it.

Green IS wonderful, whether grayed down or singing about happiness. Your use of green is especially wonderful.

Oh the sublime beauty of this one! Perfect greens, Celeste, those that lend to a beautiful day resting along the bank here. You can almost feel the serenity and it draws me right in. And Al Green is one of my all time favs. 'Course, any old MoTown is truly at the top of my favorites list in music.

Nice painting - love the variety of subdued greens. Green is Good. Whenever I paint trees, I lay out a palette of as many greens as I can imagine - I wonder if you did it like that.

Green is so wide-ranging, from hot chartreuse to cool emerald. Your lovely greens are of the Planet Earth. Very calming after my Martian excursion.
Good tune from the Rev.

Des verts qui en sont et d'autres qui n'en sont pas... Une belle musique pour nous emporter... il ne manque plus que le verre de vin... Bordeaux pour moi!
