What's in a title?

I have a heck of a time coming up with titles. When I do, I find I have already used them on another painting. I ended up calling this one Ranch Pond, which is very uninspired and if I can find something better, I will change it. I already used Reflecting and others that say similar things on other paintings. As often as I paint water and fall, I go through the titles pretty quickly. Any ideas will be appreciated! ( I have already used Double Vision, which would be appropriate).


  1. Call the painting “George” or “A Time With Him”, something mysterious, the wonder of a story to be told….
    I love the painting…. Now, Who is George?

  2. My nephew does that on his paintings. He has one called "the day Sam lost his watch". I have no clue where he gets the titles from!
    Good suggestion Anthony!

  3. Pardon me for using your post to shamelessly plug a blog I did on this subject: ( But this is a subject that always haunts us painters. Call this painting whatever you want, it's lovely by any name!
