Green is gold



Title: Green is gold
Technique: Mixed media on board
size: 50cm x 76cm

Painting inspired by the poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost:
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
