Love the Color

...and the delicacy of the leaves, but I don't want to eat one. The dolly from below has jumped up into this frame.

Green links:

Wearing green on Birdwoman

The Ground beneath her feet on femminismo

Green (felt) Alice on Nature's Whispers

The very green Pacific Northwest beautifully painted on Celeste Bergin

Green haiku (English and Scottish versions) on zenspeung via bard on the run

A rebellious green crocodile on Eric Barclay

Dyeing fabric green on ixchel art

Green used for emphasis on Errantry

Green Tea plantation on Indiaphragme

Some green suggestions on renaissance little green book (a recent post is very detailed about feeding birds in winter)

It's part animal, part plant and all green on Xenophilia

Spaceman Bobox's girlfriend's mother on eyetrouble

I've had a good response to this idea, so I think I'm going to be posting a word every Wednesday for a list of links on Thursday. Since I've focused on the visual folks this time, next week I'll try to find a word for the writers. Stay tuned....

What a winsome cabbagehead!

MacDonald's greenly chiseled haiku are to be found at zenspeug. And what's more there's a PiR 'link' to the green-tongued Highland stonemason of very few words.

Ginga Squid said...

Thats the coolest sprout I've seen in ages!

ArtSparker said...

PR - it's posted.

justdoodleit said...

Cerebral and edible too!

ArtSparker said...

jdi - Brains....love brains.

Jasmine said...

I love the brussel sprout!

Cláudia said...

Crispy head above a lovely worn out blue dress. But no arms?

Hey, I had a lot of fun going through the links! It's a very good idea!

Tomás Serrano said...

Uh, she looks a character of a 50´s science fiction movie!

Totalfeckineejit said...

She may have sprouted a terrifying head but really she's 'armless.

Bungy32 said...

Well, that will certainly put a little brussel in her bustle. ;-)

Titus said...

I love the surreal ones. Agree with the sci-fi comment too.

ArtSparker said...

Titus - Yes, Tomas nailed it...it even has the look of the incredibly cheesy special effect costumery of the era. Poor wee innocent vegetable!

Harnett-Hargrove said...

So weirdly wonderful. -j

tony said...

I have been thinking of Nick Drake's "Five Leaves Left" !!!!x

steve said...

Haha, yes! Very alien-like, nice!

Fresca said...

I just posted "zɪərɒks", my video of the day. I wasn't thinking of your green challenge until I posted it and realized it's very green.
I think my subconscious wants to play--next time I'll pay more attention to your stated game.

Charles Gramlich said...

Now that's a scene from a horror movie if I ever saw one. cool!

femminismo said...

I put something green on my blog tonight. I like the brussel sprout head doll. The little dress made me think of one I used to have in my closet. (a green dress) I wanted to take a pic, but of course now it's gone somewhere else. I wonder where????

herhimnbryn said...

Glorious green. You know, b.sprouts are very good when cut 1/4s and stir fried with sesame seeds. Finally a couple of drops of sesame seed oil and they are sublime.

I shall follow your green links now thankyou.

herhimnbryn said...

ps. have just realised that prior to reading yr post, I had posted about my 'green woman' over at my mosaic blog... Synchronicity.

Poet in Residence said...

Quick clarifcation & correction!

Re zenspeug's green-link the two languages JM uses are Scottish and English. Yes, 3 languages are spoken in Scotland but zenspeug is an Edinburgh-based blog. The Gaelic speakers are mainly in the Hebrides; the Isle of Skye and such places.

Rick said...

That brussel sprout looks to me like the head of one of the creatures from Alien. On top of the doll it's kinda creepy! I like it, though--kinda punky!

jenny2write said...

Oh, goodness! I found this somehow very startling. At first, also I thought the doll was Alice in Wonderland. The more I look at it, though, the more I like it.

ArtSparker said...

Thanks, PR. I have corrected.

Anja said...

Oh, I was too late, but I'll try to participate next week.

California Girl said...

this is so very cool. it reminds me of the Martians in "Mars Attacks" whose heads would blow up when Slim Whitman was played.

lettuce said...

hahahahaha

Celeste Bergin said...

thanks for the green mention! Once, in high school I dyed my hair and went swimming. My hair was green. darker green than your girl's sprout..I love how the sprout looks so head-like.

Bee said...

Sprouts ARE rather beautiful . . . but I can only manage to eat them at Christmas, and just because it would be rude not to.

grrl + dog said...

love the brussel sprout doll. Hate Brussels sprouts no matter how much sulphur and cruciate goodies they have
