As I continue to work on the hydrangea painting, I've come to the conclusion that the name I gave it initially does not fit.  So...I am changing it from Movement in Blue to Center Light.  Makes more sense, I think to convey the center parts which are the light and yellow petals.

And I will save the Movement in Blue title for the next one - which will be very blue!  
(Here is a sneak peek of the initial paint on the paper.  No whites in this one, just pale pale almost there cerulean blue.)

This one is a half sheet.  I prewet the paper and let the blue flow around, leaving the yellow centers and some pale green leaves showing here and there.

Both are great titles and as much as I love the first one, that second piece is just looking divine!

Dear Rhonda, both are nice. Each has different beauty! Best wishes, Sadami

Thanks, Sherry. Hope it comes together easily! ha ha

Sadami, thanks so much!

Yay - keep this series going!

"Center Light" has a more metaphoric meaning too, I like it! This is so interesting, to me, to hear other artists talk about their own thought processes as they work on a piece from start to finish. This one is already breathtakingly beautiful!

You know I will always return to hydrangeas, Deb - and crows! ha ha

Katherine, thanks so much. I really like your critters, too!! Someday we will see each other at a show - we have to be in the same place at the same time sooner or later! ha ha
