The lean to Green

You're on a exercise kick. You're on an Alan Watts kick. You're on a green kick.

Painting, Celeste Bergin, Moonscape, oil on 8x8 canvas panel

It is because you do green so well that you can get on a green kick. I certainly envy your ability.
Any hints for someone green challenged????

This is a beautiful painting.

That reflection is so perfect. Beautiful green work of art.

I'm currently on a Baby Ruth kick, thanks to Halloween candy displays. A green kick would be much better.

Sigh...green...moonlight...landscape of trees...This couldn't have come together more beautifully, my friend. Where are you finding energy to exercise? Inquiring minds want to know! (And can you bottle some up and send it to me?)

That is sort of exotic and dramatic looking all at once! Do I see a little red or brown sneaking out from underneath?

I'm green with envy ... well I would be, if I painted ... but I don't, so I'm not ;0)

Just love this one; it's a 'Moonraker' moon ... folk from the Western shires are called 'Moonrakers'.

Legend has it that 100s of years ago, they threw their contraband booze into the village pond just as the Customs Men arrived. To hide the ripples they raked the surface of the pond with hay rakes. When the Customs Men asked what they were doing, they replied that they were trying to catch the moon's reflection in the pond... Moonrakers!
