"Floating Flame"

Today, I used two new colors in my palette, quinacridone violet and torrit grey from Gamblin. The little flower in this painting is a phlox from my own yard. The word phlox has a modern Latin origin and denotes a flame-colored flower, and from Greek, literally is "flame". Thus, after all of that, "Floating Flame". I almost went with Floating Phlox because the flower is floating in this brandy snifter, but Flame is so much more fun. : )
