Green is Good

Green Fantasy, Chihiro Iwasaki, 1972 - 1972, From the collection of: Chihiro Art Museum
I love how the details in the background are made from the negative space.
Radio, John Gordon Rideout, 1930-1933, From the collection of: Brooklyn Museum
I'm a sucker for old-timey, vintage machinery. The fact that it's green is pretty great, too
Vase, Maija Grotell, ca. 1951, From the collection of: Brooklyn Museum
I love the green-on-black color of this vase. It sort of reminds me of a spongey "Monster" logo.
A Beech Wood in May near Iselingen Manor, Zealand, P.C. Skovgaard, 1857, From the collection of: SMK - Statens Museum for Kunst
The detail on the trees in this piece is really great.
Patch of grass, Vincent van Gogh, 1887, From the collection of: The Kröller-Müller Museum
I love van Gogh's style. Although this is just grass, van Gogh paints it in a way that it seems like more than that.
Grass and butterflies, Vincent van Gogh, May 1887 - July 1887, From the collection of: Van Gogh Museum
Similar to "Patch of Grass", this image is just tufts of grass, flowers, and a couple of butterflies. But something about it is beautiful.
Near Liverpool, New South Wales, W.C. PIGUENIT, c.1908, From the collection of: National Gallery of Australia, Canberra
I like how only about two-thirds of this piece is green, but it still really pops.
Palm Tree, Yi Han-bok, 1897/1940, From the collection of: Korea Data Agency
I love the minimalism of this piece.
Palm Trees and Housetops, Ecuador, Frederic Edwin Church, May 1857, From the collection of: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
This piece reminds me of my apartment complex. 
Trees and undergrowth, Vincent van Gogh, July 1887 - 1887, From the collection of: Van Gogh Museum
More van Gogh! I like how he separates the green of the trees and the green of the ground with more green.
Trees in the Sky, Emily Carr, 1939, From the collection of: Art Gallery of Ontario
I love the fluidity of this piece. The trees almost look like they're from a Dr. Seuss book.
Trees, Vincent van Gogh, July 1887, From the collection of: Van Gogh Museum
This piece reminds me of the woods back home in Massachusetts. Not spectacular, but still beautiful.
The old Spruce in Bad Gastein, Rudolf von Alt, 1899, From the collection of: Leopold Museum
A singe tree standing tall on a mountain. Very photogenic.
Yosemite Valley from the Best General View, 1866, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
I like the quirkiness of the single tree in this piece.
Lakeside Road near Gmunden, Richard Gerstl, 1907, From the collection of: Leopold Museum
I like the smooth, abundant brush strokes in this piece.
