GREEN
is this week's Illustration Friday challenge. This gave me a moment's pause, as actually the problem is that I have SO MUCH to choose from. I've been told that I use green too often and that it is not a particularly popular or appealing color to the general public. Alas! Because I love it, almost every shade and variation of it appeals to my eye, and yes, I admit it creeps in everywhere...even when I am making an effort not to use it as much.

Oh well, to thine own self be true (since you don't really have any choice in the matter!)

Wow, the detail here. I SO have no patience for realism. The details here are just amazing. You must just have SOOOO much patience ;-)

Fabulous painting - and as to the general public add a splash of red and they'll be happy!

(This is from observation of what sells at "opens" around here - so long as there was strategically placed splash of red and reasonably well painted it had sold - and you've got no problem with the well painted.)
