“He Who Understands Has Wings” Kathleen Carrillo
I usually jot down thoughts of titles of my art while I am creating the piece. If I am watching a movie, or reading something and a word I like, or even a title is triggered I keep a pad to jot the words down. The title of your art will many times bring people into your art. Many pieces of art are sold by the title alone. I put a piece of art out into cyber space with two titles. The one that appealed to most people got more attention than the one titled, “untitled, so I do not recommend naming your art “Untitled.” People like to relate to their art and own it and this can start with the title. They like to share their art with others and a title that speaks to them will allow them to proudly share with their finds. Here are a few tips I have found that might be helpful in titling their art.
Try out the combinations for unique words to develop your title. Here are a few I came up with: Bittersweet Knowledge, Sad Sphere Transformed, Hot Feeling in Development, Warm Dreams. Sometimes just one word will convey the art, like Sad.
I hope by working through these step, you can achieve what I feel is just as important as your art, the title.
