March Exhibit - It's Not Easy Being Green
February 26 - March 25, 2014
The color, green has a reputation with artists as being the most difficult color to use. The landscape can be filled with many shades of green and overwhelm the eye. Green is not a pure color and it has to be mixed which can lead to over mixing and the possibility of making a dull or dirty color. Thus green can be a challenge for the artist.
Enjoying the unique light that the color can reflect, Laura Hickman is showing,” Gracie Grinch”, a pastel portrait of her dog. In this art work Hickman has bathed Gracie in the green light reflected from her favorite swimming pool.
“Chartreuse in the Landscape” an oil by Lesley McCaskill highlights the yellow green of new spring grasses along a path on Surf Avenue in Rehoboth. Another artist, Sonia Hunt was drawn to yellow greens and painted a lovely watercolor of a tree line path called “Changing Leaves”.
