Green is all around me...

When I was sitting in our backyard a couple of days ago I noticed how many different shades of green we have back there and how many different textures. So I grabbed the camera and took a few photos. I could have kept going, but I didn't want to overwhelm you.

It did give me the idea to do another very fast self-portrait (this one took about 15 minutes) only in three shades of green and white. It turned into an intense little painting. And somehow it speaks to me! I like all the little imperfections.
I hope you all had a beautiful weekend with warmth and sunshine. Summer has arrived here with warm temperatures and very humid weather. Every afternoon there are thunderstorms in the area, but we never know if one will make it's way over our house and garden. I hope today one of them will decide to visit to keep our garden so nice and green!



  1. Beautiful, you look like a green goddess! (And I don't mean salad dressing!) xx

  2. Liebe Silke,


    Sonnige Grüße


  3. I do this too: green is my favorite color and the infinite shades amaze me. My favorite time of year--when it's still cool enough for green to do as it pleases

    What fun you and your paints are having!
