How do you name paintings?Â Or anything else that you make?Â I like to give a name because I feel it enhances the painting and also gives a way for the viewer to look at the work – when they would like that way into the artists’ mind.Â So I name all my vibrant, colorful paintings … but I sometimes run into problems.Â How unusual!Â (smiling) This is one of the ACEO paintings I made for the WWAO Swap … and I named them all – of course – I always do!

But tonight when I went to write a post, I ran into a road block.Â This was the pastel I chose to share with you … so I went to my image folder to make sure you hadn’t seen it before … and there was already another Green Dusk .. a digital one!Â Well, it is too late to change the name of either … so one is a Green Dusk pastel and another a Green Dusk digital.Â I prefer that doesn’t happen, but obviously I am far from perfect. At least I feel there is a similar feel in one way to them both – so it shows some internal logic in my names.
