He was part of the seven "Lynn Beach Painters" that included his close friend, Charles Woodbury. Green had his first one-man show in 1886 at the J Eastman Chase Gallery, one of Boston's most prestigious exhibition venues at that time. In 1906, Green moved from Boston to his hometown of Lynn where in 1909, he became one of the founders of the Lynn Art Club. He is remembered as a major influence on succeeding generations of painters inspired to paint local marine scenes of the Boston area.
