How can some parts of the world be so damn green?!

Yesterday, I was watching a TV play from Great Britain, and in the little industrial village in the hill country where the play was filmed, the landscape was green, green , green... everywhere where you looked. A week earlier, I was watching a documentary about the last moonshiner in the hills of Virginia, and there too, the landscape was green, green, green... and that was in the summer for green's sake!!! I'm a native Californian living in what is called "The golden state" and called that for reason. This is what we see a LOT of during our long summer season, and it sure nuf ain't green, green, green! Acrylic on stretched canvas, 8"X10".

Ah, but even golden, the California hills are so sensual and curvacious! Not to mention we are not neck high in snow right now!

It is all the rain those places get, David. I lived in Washington (state) and it too was green green green. I loved it and I actually loved all the rain. (I am not a sun worshiper...at all!) This is one goldenly delightful piece!

Virginia is green, green, green--and I'm pretty sure we still have a few moonshiners. Beautiful painting; I enjoy visiting your blog--it's fun.

It may not be green but it is pretty. Here it's all dust, sand and building construction :P
