Started this one a few weeks ago bringing it to a point that I really liked, yet did not feel it was quite where I wanted it to be.  Left it alone for a while hoping and waiting for the next idea.  Time paid off, as I got up one day with the idea for circles.  I am always just a little leary of going back in on a painting that I am really liking, as the whole thing could possibly change.  I am happy to say that the original composition and color scheme pretty much remained in tact as I worked the spheres in. 

 I'll have to confess...I am not the one who titles the painting.  Now and then I will come up with one, but for the most part it can take me much longer to title a piece than to paint it. Lol..  it is my husband who works on the titles.  So thankful! The questions I get asked are " So, what does it remind you of,  or what where you thinking about?" Sounds easy enough...but from this I will have some long, long meaning of it all....somehow he is able to sort through and pick a title.

This list is pretty much all that it was reminding me of, from which he used the thesaurus to find the title.
