Fresh Paint: Name That Painting




(red tulips)  oil   24" x 24"  R. Garriott

Often I have a name in mind for a painting before I even begin to paint. I'm drawing a blank this time. Anyone think of a catchy, quippy, witty name for these red tulips?

Here's a thought; comment on this post ( I love to hear from you!), and I will send a small poster of one my other artworks to a name chosen at random from all comments, and another to my choice for best title. I'll make a decision on March 31.

Thanks for your help!

  2. Hi R!! This is lovely-It reminds me of summer <3 I'm not that witty and have been staring at this trying to think of a good title lol. I'm good at naming my pieces "Untitled" Hee Hee! Maybe :

    "Lazy Afternoon Shadows" ;)

  4. I love it when the title comes before a painting and often struggle when I have to come up with one after the fact. I'm afraid I don't have any catchy suggestions for you but just wanted to say how great the red looks against the silvery-green foliage, and the shadows are wonderful.
