Color Me Green

acrylic on w/c paper, 10 X 11″

Green.  The color of hospital walls, grass, jealousy, and nausea.  I hope I’m not making you sick!  Just another little self portrait in the series.  I traced a Photo Booth picture (with the comic book filter, printed out black and white from my Mac computer) and using transfer paper, copied the main lines onto a gessoed paper surface.  Lots of green and some complementary red to POP it.  I think I’m getting a bit seasick just looking at it!

    I think it’s a wonderful self-portrait, Susan. The red is just right.

    This looks fabulous!!! Kind of reminds me of a self-portrait I did of myself with red hair….well, I wanted to know what I´d look like with red hair without really dying it red so I painted myself with red hair and used this same yellow green ….it remains hidden in a big pile of watercolors………maybe I should get it out??
    P.S. I never did dye my hair red…maybe it was the yellow green that did it.

    WOW!! This is soooo fabulous! I love the wonderful, long fingers on your hand. I never seem to get hand gestures right. What a fun way to do a self-portrait.

In conversations with the Muse I mix paint with vision, collage with story, word with meditation and prayer. And out of the mixture comes a release of energy and healing and a lightening of the load of everyday living. You'll find most of it here, where I've been showing up for the past few years, along with collectible paintings, travel sketchbooks, figure studies and an invitation to join me in art play and discovery!
