"Green" Painting

So much is "green" these days: not just the grass and trees, but consumer goods as well. I still like the original green best, I think.

Here in full summer we are surrounded by green, which can be a challenge to paint. I found these hosta leaves to be interesting and tried my hand at them. I used a sienna toned paper to contrast with the green, and a square format to emphasize the abstract quality of the composition. It turned out so well I am planning to do more like it.
