Don't Fence Me In
I've been busy this week finishing up some pieces that I started last week. Here is another one which began with an "under painting" of collage. I wanted to save the strong diagonal element that I had placed from the right hand corner towards the center of the canvas, and it will definitely need to help inform the title! The piece is 11 x 14 and is painted with acrylic.
It was interesting to read the comments from everyone about naming your work. I'm glad I'm not alone in finding it difficult sometimes. I'm not sure that Don't Fence Me In is the final title, but it made me smile, so that's what I titled today's post. I agree that living with a work for awhile helps the title float to the surface. I'm always in so much of a hurry to get on to the next piece that I sometimes rush that part of the project. Percolation is important in coffee and in other things in life!
Thanks for looking and commenting. It is much appreciated!
