Phthalo Blue

Phthalo Blue and White My 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 Appear Strikingly Wise

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. %
