Naming Artwork

What do you do when you have an abundance of artwork and you want to name each piece. I haven’t done any research on the topic and I don’t really plan to, but I am curious as to whether out of all the artist out there, do they name each piece of art they produce.

For me, when I’m done with one, a name just pops into my head right away. Other times I may have a string of artwork that is in line as a category. In that scenario, I may start with letters or a phrase and add numbers at the end. I’m not sure if that is a logical approach but it surely simplifies the need for naming an abundance of works on the table.

As an example, I have some designs that are incorporated using isometrics. So I had the idea to use the first four letters of isometric.

ISOM 106h 1
ISOM 106i

I’m sure someone will look at these and a name could possibly come to mind and that’s fine and dandy, but when I was working on these on a daily basis ISOM was so easy.

Now the following piece, when finished did have a name come to me.

ABSTRACTIVIDO

Why that name? Abstract was the first thing that popped when I looked at it and then I thought, nah too obvious, it needs something else. Abstractivido, yes.

I have plans for more of this type of design and naming them will be an event all its own.

By The Way Ava

I heard you ask Mamaw one day when you were visiting if she slept with the dog you gave her and she said yes, that it is on her pillow above her head every night.


Well….


I used a flashlight the other night to take this picture for ya!

I Couldn’t Forget You Ava

If I’m not mistaken, I haven’t highlighted Ava in any of my posts. Yes she has been included as a group or pair and yes I have pictures of her by herself, but she doesn’t have her own post.

So Ava my sweet….this one is for you.

Ava will be 5 this month and like the other two, seems to be older than she is. She’s taking ballet lessons and from what I hear she absolutely loves it.

Ava is the second of three Grands. She has this cute little girlie voice that matches the ballerina in her and a very high pitch screech that pierces every nerve within you when she is playing. 

She is really meticulous when she gets into doing things sometimes and that’s when the tongue comes out. She was doing this before she she could walk and talk. Sometimes it takes her awhile to get things done and it’s not because she doesn’t want to get it done, but she wants it done right….perfect could be a good way to describe it.




It looks like Ava is going to be the neater one between the two girls. Here she is putting the puzzle pieces back in the bag…without being told to do so. She handed the bag to me when she was finished and went on to play something else.

Ava my sweet, sorry it took so long to get ya featured but I hope you like it.

Wheeeeee!!!!!
