Jack’s lesson in the green sphere. . .

Jack on his bean stalk emerges to a strange land where the affluence of money is less than the wealth of a single leaf on his bean stalk ladder. 

Next we focused on GREEN in Muse Group.  A pleasing color known to relax and harmonize the body and spirit (unless you’re nauseous or envious).  We mixed a variety of greens with all our yellows, oranges and blues.  I decided on a neutralized, olivey green for dominance and cut up the color swatches to bring in a bit of “bounce”.   Things got a bit out of hand at some point!  But it’s all in good fun.  Jack came in at the last minute when I realized I had grown a pretty fantastical vine, much like the Jack in the children’s story. (Then I got all nervous that there was some other connotation to “Jack’s stalk” which was NOT my intention!)
