The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 18
RARE GREEN EARTH
Rare Green Earth is a bland sort of evergreen that while useful in a landscape, really has little appeal for me other than its a quick and easy way to get the bluish grayed down green I might want in a background. It does granulate a bit and according to Daniel Smith, if mixed with Rhodonite Genuine it makes luscious, reticulating soft purples. They also say it creates lovely atmospheric shadows which I would agree. It worked for the little hummingbird who perched on a hummingbird garden steak that has lost one wing. I think he was saying "That's not how you do hummingbird"

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
