When trying to think of names for my paintings, I usually come up blank (and I’ll probably name one of my pieces “Blank” one of these days). Sometimes, nothing comes to me when looking at the piece.
Sometimes though, a name just pops into my head and in some cases, it sticks even if the final painting seems to have nothing to do with the title. That’s still fine with me, because if I come up with a title first and then work, that title influenced what I painted and is still part of the piece, even if the two don’t seem to go together.
For Day 2, the title “Mist” came to me as I was about mid-way through. I liked it enough to want to work with that in mind as I continued painting and while it might not be a perfect fit after all, I still like the title enough to keep it.
