Emerald

This painting is inspired by my favorite gem stone, the emerald. Emerald is the girl in the painting. According to ancient folklore, putting an emerald under your tongue would help one see into the future. Emeralds were thought to guard against memory loss and enhance intuition.
Want to be sure what your lover is saying is real? Emerald was believed to act as a type of truth potion, helping decipher whether the lover's vows were true or false.
