NOT A HYDRANGEA


Well, I was going to get back to the Dancing Hydrangea painting - but I didn't.  
Instead, I painted this.
I'm calling is
This is Going to Hurt

It's in process - no telling where it might go and it's on 300# cold press paper so I can make a lot of changes as they present themselves to me.  Unfortunately, the colors are off and I can't get them just right - the reds are not as bright red as they should be and the blues are not as grey-blue.  Sometimes I just can't get the colors right with my minor changes on my camera or simple photo program. 

Maybe art therapist, Jenna Reynolds,  can tell me what it means!  Or you're welcome to have a shot at it.

Hi, Rhonda.
I see a crow, trees and a lot of blood.
I do like the colors and the composition.

Rhonda - Can't wait to see this finished. I caught sight of the eye - love the colors you are using too. Happy creating.

I am not an art therapist, but I see a lot of emotions, passion and freedom here. Please keep going!

I think the crows are attacking the hibiscus; they want more crow paintings.

I forgot to mention that I really like this painting.

I see an upraised arm with red fingernails...So this one is kind of chilling, and that includes the title. Rather mesmerizing since you named it that way! LOL Not an abstract art fan at all and yet this one is drawing me in and making me want to know what is happening.

Definitely keep going. I love the spontaneity in this painting.

Wow, it's really interesting what everyone sees in this one!!! Of course, that is what you see - not exactly what I see :) ha ha
But thanks for the psychological insight on this one. I will keep working at it a little at a time - seems there is more needed to bring out things or blur things...anyway, it wants more work.
Hallie, you made me laugh!!! The crows want more attention right now! ha ha

I'm not sure it has to go anywhere else. I really like it as is. And I really like the title. The painting is filled with passion and movement.
