Unhappy Brushes Keep Dyeing Green

I have this problem that after using a brush for a little while in green paint (especially phthalo green) it dyes the brush the same color. I just bought some new brushes and I was wondering if there is any way to stop this from happening. I find it very uninspiring.

To the Sea, to the Sea! The white gulls are crying,
The wind is blowing, and the white foam is flying.
West, west away, the round sun is falling.
Grey ship, grey ship, do you hear them calling,
The voices of my people that have gone before me?
I will leave, I will leave the woods that bore me;
For our days are ending and our years failing.
I will pass the wide waters lonely sailing.

If this just a fact of life than I guess that's fine but I would like to know if anyone else has this problem and found a solution. Maybe it just doesn't bother anyone else.

Yeah, this is happens, especially to white nylon brushes. It doesn't bother me. I just make sure I clean my brushes thoroughly and if it dyes the bristles so be it.

Okay, thanks TerryCurley. I thought that might be the case. That's fine, though I'm glad it's not just my brushes that get dyed. Now I know I'm not doing anything wrong. Thanks!
