"Everything Else is Nothing"
6 x 6 inches, Oil on Board
I do have trouble coming up with interesting titles and sometimes fall back on something like "yellow tulips" "red roses".....just a descriptive title. I have nothing against descriptive titles but I guess I'd like to be able to come up with something charming and creative for my artwork. I once exhibited a painting of aspens which didn't have the word "aspen" in the title. Some viewers thought they were birch and some thought they were aspens - the viewers made up their own minds as to what they were seeing. I like that.
And yet I think a title of a painting plays a role in it's success. I have sold paintings after I've changed the title; is it a coincidence?
Last night I was chatting with a friend who typed this phrase. It was part of a longer sentence but I liked the sound of it...."everything else is nothing". So there you have it.
