Words are wonderful - although I usually prefer to leave direct representation out of the picture, I do love what a title can bring to a piece. Titles add humor or depth.
The title add a special twist to a painting so that you see something new in it that you had not seen before. Sometimes the title of a painting gives the viewer a glimpse of the artist’s outlook on the world, or you even feel as if you are privy to a private joke.
I don’t like to fully explain my thought process in my titles but I do like the titles to add another layer to the work.
Sometimes I have the title in mind when I start a painting but more often, I come about the title as I work. My favorite titles are those that make my giggle or those that are descriptive of the mood or add to my message.
