The green on this maple is similar to the greens in my painting of opera singer Lily Pons May 13, 2019 This maple caught my eye while walking today. This is one of my favorite shades of green and is so pretty with the white on these leaves. This is my recently finished painting, inspired by a family photo of Opera singer Lily Pons. My environment certainly influences my palette choices in painting. Sign up for my newsletter to be the first to know when my new series, including this painting, is released.
