Green on Green

Green on Green

Working on a book of “visionary poetry” is an intensive project — the daily painting, the ongoing inspiration that I need in order to create a large volume of works, and the intensity of painting itself. The easy part is the poetry which usually comes immediately when the painting is complete or near completion. There’s also laying out the book — every page has to be consistent — as perfect as possible.

Growing up, I loved green apples! Especially picking them straight from the tree. I particularly loved the small green ones instead of the big ones you find in grocery stores. They were far better! Of course, I think fresh fruit off of a tree is always better than what you buy in a grocery store. That’s why I prefer Farmer’s Markets!
