daily painting practice-name the painting contest

I have been waiting to do this painting for a while.
I started much looser than yesterday's painting. I think that helped keep the painting fresh for a longer period of time.
Almost there! She's wondering what am I going to call this painting.

Name the painting
8"x8"
oil on wood

I could not think of a good title. So I'll put it out to you. Help me give it a title. Send me your suggestion and I'll pick a winner on July 4th. The winner gets the painting. Be sure your email is in the comment so I can contact you if you win. Good luck.

LOVE your figures, name for this one...hmmm "Yesterday" thats what sprang to mind as soon as I looked at it, she seems to be lost in that sort of day dream when you find an old photo of think about times long past, kind of sad but also very beautiful.

Yes, 'Yesterday' seems like an excellent title, but I want this painting! so I'll be thinking of a title as well.

You are very good with portraits. I especially like her shirt. Those are some of my favorite greens.

She is so lovely, but rather sad. I would call this "Silent Resignation".

Okay, how about... 'Hindsight'.

Darren Maurer said...

Whew!!!!....... you guys are deep. I would call it "Green Blouse" if I was the one that painted it. Hi Peter!

silvina said...

Oh! You wanted lighter fare!

"Grill Master's Mama".

Peter Yesis said...

These are some great titles. I should have you guys name all my work.

silvina said...

I thought of a new name...

"The Green Blouse Effect" yes?

Peter Yesis said...

Very clever! Does adding more cadmium orange to a painting effect global warming?

She looks like she's watching kids misbehaving and she's just about to do something about it - I'd call it "Grandma's Wearin' Green" because when Grandma has her green blouse on, you don't want to mess with her!

The painting is very nice. The expression on her face is meek/humble. I'd call it "Turn the Other Cheek".

Peter,

No need to worry, adding more cad. orange to a painting will only warm the picture, not the planet!
