Grass is Greener

pastel painting of my emotional landscape

Grass is Greener, 5×7″ pastel on Crescent board with pumice ground by Marie Marfia. $75, unframed. Contact me to purchase.

When I started this pastel, I planned to do a cool landscape, similar to a painting that Karen Margulis had posted this morning.

So I took out all the reds and oranges from yesterday’s palette, and added in some cool darks. What I ended up with was a painting where the green in the distance seems to be the star of the show, so I named it after an old adage, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence,” or, in this case, the other side of the path.
