What's in a name?

It's important to name your artwork. I hear this all the time. Galleries want a name for your show. Customers want a name for the painting. It helps everyone else understand the meaning behind your work.

I struggle with titles. I mean, how do you come up with a word or two to describe the images you see?

I need to close my eyes, take a deep breath and relax. Often the title just comes to me.  Sometimes not. 

So I look at the colors, the mood of the work and sometimes this helps. 

A thesaurus works great for ideas too!

Maybe the title is so unrelated it starts a conversation! How about that?

Regardless, if you create it, put a title to it. Oh, yes, and sign it!
