All Over But The...Naming!
One of the biggest challenges an artist may have is coming up with just the right title for a piece of work. Sometimes the title is decided before the work is even created...other times, a finished piece will just sit there untitled until just the right one comes along. And yes, sometimes that perfect title never seems to come! Sometimes you come up with just the right title only to find out that some other artist thought up that same right title...completely independent of you!
The latest piece to be completed is the Arabian in oil pastel that I showed in progress just after I started this blog. I'm especially happy with how the background came together for this piece. As it was a simple head study, the background helped to contribute some drama to the overall composition. So now, what to call it? Suggestions welcome!
