The Green Man
I realized that it had been a while since I had done a color painting, so here is a new one. It relates to my "Tree Man" series which weaves in & out of my work. The green color was also partly inspired by the greenish hue of the Mona Lisa, a small reproduction of which was on the wrapper for the gessoed board that this was painted on. It's fairly thickly painted in acrylic, which doesn't always lend itself well to impasto, but came out quite well in this case, & the light hit it at a good angle for the photo.
