This isn't a dark and heavy post about the word envy.
Even though the word conjures up menacing,
green Witches, or fire breathing Dragons!
But it is a quote that everyone recognizes,
and we'll get to envy at another time.
I'm looking for the perfect shade of green,
this frog, that is in the first stages of sculpting.
I mentally start dressing with color in the second and third stages,
between sanding and polishing.
Should be easy
If the shades and tones aren't clean,
then you might end up with baby poop green,
or a dirty muddy green.
Which in my mind means, Alien.
Do you think Exorcist, with peas?
Or Peas Porridge Hot?
Color association can make or break a piece of artwork.
If it doesn't look good on the plate then you probably won't eat it.
You'll notice I didn't show an avocado...ate it.
And the pistachios too!
I'm opting for Granny Smith,
since it's the apple of my eye!
