Phthalo Blue

Phthalo Blue and White
White spirit is lifted
And poured ceremoniously yet with an air of joy
As colours are mixed upon the plate
To paint
A baby boy
Each shade and light I know so well now
As the lines on my left palm
I hope to reproduce his smile
With the very same
Gentle charm
I don't even know his name yet
But I know the phthalo blue which rest as his eyes
As gentle little halos though so young

    Do you paint Karen? Pthalo blue is on every painters palette and is a beautiful color. The child with eyes this color is truly lucky! :)

    I think Phthalo would make a great name for powerful soul - I like how you combine joy with ceremony, thats the way they should be - oft times ceremonies and rituals are too stale,rigid and excessively solemn - equating painting with procreation is a wonder stroke Karen - J.A.B. %
