Week of Colour-Green Tuesday



"Green is the prime colour of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises."-Pedro Calderon de la Barca (1600-1681) via google! I liked this quote out of the ones I found.

Trees are green. Obvious I know! I love the shape of this tree-kind of womanly. This view makes me think of Central Park. This little skier is a toy from my youth-I don't remember playing with him at all then but I love him now. I did this painting of him a long time ago-I used poster paints from school-they have kept their brightness very well. This is the beautiful green roof of a church I often drive past. Tonight I stopped to take photos and when I went through the gates I found these roses. This is the green glass block window to my bathroom-it has no natural light so I got this knocked through to let a little in. It is just enough to see by. This is from the outside. Real Acanthus (I think!) -outside the church too. Pretend Acanthus in the bathroom. Green china.

Great Greens! I really like that bathroom tile(?) - it reminds me of the old-fashioned tiles you sometimes get around old fireplaces ...

Wonderful little skier! And I love the tree, womanly or no.

Thank you for sharing these, and what a grand idea!

Sarah that little skier guy just made me smile! He looks like he comes alive at night and skies down your cushions - and that's how his tiny hat got all skew...

Also love the quotation and the pictures of the skyline and the tree... country green in the city is great!

I loved the picture of the womanly tree and the painting of your childhood toy.

My favorite Green is how green and vibrant the grass and trees are after a rainstorm. They just vibrate with the color.

Thank you for my acting booklet. I just got it today and start reading it. I am touched by your kindness. I do like it because it's coming from actors I know and like. You rock, Sarah!!
