read my posting thingi that i posted earlier,.. green is actually used a lot,.. more than it was when islam first came into being,.. the main dome of the prophet mohommads mosque in madina saudi arabia is green and because of that more and more domes of mosques are being painted green,.. there is no written prohibition of drawing natural life forms, but humans and animals are generally avoided, especially in places of worship (mosques) but lots of plants and foliage are painted and even frescoed...
