This year the color is Greenery. Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. It is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that make you think of the first days of spring when nature’s greens return after a long colorless winter. Greenery signals people to take a deep breath. Greenery is an omnipresent hue around the world.
A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

Everytime I pick up a paintbrush it will be a creative journey.I love exploring the world through the use of art. A couple things you should know: I am not a trained, professional painter. I have been doing some form of art or craft all my life and can't image going a day without doing something creative. :) I am currently loving the way painting relaxes me even when I sit down to a long painting session. I come away with a peaceful heart. My hope is that you will see that You can do this too! Acrylic painting is very forgiving. If something doesn't go right, let it dry and paint right over it. YOu can change your mind, take the painting in a different direction. It is all up to you and your creative spirit!

Materials I used in this painting:
11"x14" stretched pre-gessoed canvas
Acrylic paints Liquitex and Golden are great Heavy body paints- these are the colors used in this painting:
Burnt Umber
Burnt Sienna
Phthalo Blue (green shade)
Cadmium Red Medium or Pyrrole Red
Cadmium Yellow or Hansa Yellow
Yellow Oxide or Yellow Ochre
Ultramarine Blue
Titanium White
Mixing White or Zinc White
