Tuesday~!

This is a painting that I took to the breakfast meeting today....for "discussion". I told everyone that even though this painting is green-green-green and a little blah compositionally, I enjoyed how I made the big kind-of-nutty decision to make the sky green.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Sauvie Island, oil on 9x12 canvas panel

Green is my favorite color. Not so nutty decision if you remember the green skies we get here in IL just before a storm...? I have a painting in my head (for a couple of years now) of a pre-storm piece. One of these days I'll get to it. I think this is just lovely!

Nothing wrong with a good green sky in my humble opinion!!

Sherry, I know what you are talking about (Illinois skies)
Thanks so much, Sherry and John!

I've tried to paint thing like this (just a stand of trees), and I'm always unsuccessful. You made it look interesting, and I'm pretty sure you managed it with the green sky.

I will paint a green sky and see if I like it. Thanks for the idea!

A different color sky can really energize a painting...taking it outside of the ho-hums! I'm a sucker for golden and orange skies!

it works. I paint green skies often and think they have a wonderful warm reflection from the ground.
