From the Archives: Green Man

Just in time for Summer!  Part of this is me exploring the paintbrush options in Photoshop.  However I've always been attracted to images of the Green Man, but have never explored them much in my own work.  I've always enjoyed the stylized pieces of leafy faces.  I just realized this looks a bit like Grizzly Adams as a Tree Spirit!  :-)

In my personal experiences of the Green man energy it seems as though there is a bit of a connection to the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.  Two opposing masculine forces that dominate opposing ends of the year.  Here is a previous piece I did involving that theme.  I have recently been studying that same relationship through the cycling between Geburah and Chesed in The Kabbalah.

The piece itself is okay, but I feel like it is more of a sketch than anything else.  I'll explore more of this theme / image later.  Perhaps a full figure piece and/or a landscape.
