So, yeah, this is a Green Man with leaves growing out of his mouth. I don't know. I wanted to try it since that's much more how the original type of green men looked, but it felt a little weird. In the end I am not sure what I think of it.

I also feel like my latest painting is in a bit of a slump even though the subject matter is much more interesting to me.

Still, I am tentatively going to say I feel great about this year's paintings. So far I have been much more committed to having a project on the go and picking away at it than I used to be.

I found this article on the potential origins of the Green Man to be an interesting read. But then that I find the mystery of these figures intriguing is pretty obvious.

Here's another green man. This one is feeding a cedar waxwing.

This one has been waiting to be finished for a long time now. Now I'm in that awkward stage of needing to decide what to start next. I have some things lined up: a will o' the wisp, a rusalka, a little person exploring some tree roots . . . I don't know.

Also, you'll notice another path in the distance. I have a sort of compulsion to include paths in landscapes that I've recently discovered. In my image folder I have over 20 pictures of them . . .

At long last, here's my green man. It's taken me far too long to finish this guy.
