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.

See What I see?

I hadn’t taken my morning walk in a few days and had a lot on my mind. One of them, what to do next for art. I wanted something quick and simple.

I have smoke stamps software and use them for many things other than just smoke. I see many different shapes in the stamps and this is what I came up with today.

Do you see what I see?

Plumes of smoke doth not fill the air

They lay, foretelling the vision

Of the mind’s eye

All Over The Place

All Over The Place 20×16 Digital

It’s been a while since I’ve done any digital art and felt like I was all over the place when I started and finished this. I’m trying to get back in the swing of all things I like to do and have to start somewhere. Really want to do some type of woodworking but the cold has set in and the bulk of my work area in in the garage which has no heat but I might be able to get around some of that.

In the meantime, this is a start.

Four Finished Canvases

As promised, I’m sharing those four canvases I started a few days ago. I actually finished them two days ago but didn’t bend under my own pressure of feeling the need that I have to post every day.

finished canvases

Personally, I’m a little mixed on how I feel about these, but they will go on my wall, I will look at them and they will inspire me.

Him n Her In The Clouds

Romance in the clouds

Him n Her InTheClouds

Where Art Thou?

Findest thine the soul of self
Buried in dept of solitudes
Where thou art in peace of mind
Tranquil to heart’s beat to life

The somber breeze passes not
Yet restest upon thine being
As forest’s leaves sing praise
Symphonic in combined pieces

From the moon to stars
The outers of space
Crickets chirp to night’s delight
To darkness that is truly not

Ocean’s seas pondereth waves
To orchestrate a solstice peace
Yet another player for thine
To bury thyself in solitudes grace

All The Same

WE’RE ALL THE SAME

BUT DIFFERENT

Relationships

Him n Her

Many people think, at the cusp of a relationship, it will be all hearts and roses.

Sure the beginning for some if not all, is just that.

Hearts aflutter, butterfly stomachs, star gazed eyes, sweaty palms and minty breaths.

Then there are times when you just don’t know which direction

the relationship is going.

Swoop Arrows

You can’t seem to agree on anything, nor can either of you head in the same direction.

Being on the same page is out of the question. Hormones and testosterone bouncing of the walls,

oozing through pores and doing everything but meshing in unity.

And so it goes, except…..

……sometimes things can really get ugly.

Confusion

Oh, you thought is was bad before? Well just hang on tight because now confusion sets in to a point of

confusion and hands get thrown into the air as if to say…I give up! Not only are you going opposite ways,

but you’re blindly making choices that make no sense other than to get back at the

other or just to be mean….oh yeaaah!!!

It’s just a cluster at this point.

Then something happens that maybe no one expected or hoped it would.

InTheMiddle

You find yourselves meeting in the middle with compromise.

All is not lost after all.

Love is still in the air…really. What happened after the love at first sight

and after the turmoil is what was always there in the midst of confusion.

The middle, the center, the firm foundation that started it all.

Hearts filled with love.

Relationships are like jobs. You have to work them with every tick of time.

Decisions

QuesMark Thinking

Decision making can be exhaustively taxing

Draining mindful resources to the brink of disillusion

Not in vain for purposeful want in hopes

Ideas which shine as bright as explosive stars

Creating anew that which is greater than before

The wonders of wandering to distant in mind

Pleasurable visions unseen in hand

Breathtaking and lost to the moment

Culminating to fruitionĀ in time
