Since the colour green reminds us of all its different shades in nature, painters have almost found it NOT employable in semi-abstract expressions. It seems to lack depth and has symbolically little to say about relation to life. Unlike the primary colours. However, an old saying exclaims, hope is green and the romantic novelists hinted that green signifies the Devil. Aside of those implications, using primarily green for the abstract I took as a challenge to execute several paintings with the attempt to give GREEN a painterly dimension.

The pinkish skin tone of a face gives, together with a glimpse of sky a more compete feeling of creation.
