Hosta Interior III --- sold

How do you make an all green painting interesting...
When asked what is the most beautiful in art, Ingres responded  "a colour adjacent to another which most closely resembles it".  Something to think about.  
When painting these Hosta studies I had in mind pieces that could be viewed from any orientation.

I just read "My Stroke of Insight"  by Jill Bolte Taylor.
I highly recommend it - if you haven't heard of her go to and type her in under speakers, there is a video of her that really blew me away. (thanks Amy!).

I just want to dive right into this painting. I will never look at an unfolding hosta the same after seeing this.
