being green

I’m green at this.

When I started this blog, I thought I’d be showing my art. All the time. Yesterday I showed a color sample on the way to the piece I mentioned at the start. That first color chart wasn’t right.

I thought about how things start. How babies are born. First the mess. Or what is called the mess. But I love my color chart with it’s first-ness. It’s innocence. I like the feeling of the touch, the paint, the hand.

Not being “broken in” for horses is called green. The beginning of spring is green. This cloth in the photo – translucent green. Not a color chart, but also, not “finished”, or made into something, or defined further. Just green.
