A Year of Color - Green

This picture was taken in my yard several years ago. It was a foggy morning and just when the morning sun started to shine through the trees, I ran for my camera and got this picture. It reminded me of a Fairy Woods, so I made this piece. I took a picture of my grandson, added some butterfly wings and attached him to an 8x10 enlargement of the picture. Then I painted a canvas to match the green in the photo, added a green velvet ribbon around it and a verse. It hangs just outside my craft room so I can see it all the time. Since then I have used this picture several times in other artwork.

My backyard is always a source of green delight

A favorite card I did several years ago on a green background piece I made this year.

I have posted these green pictures because I am in Artsy Mama's "Year of Color" and this month the color is Green.
Thanks for looking,
