Gallery Update

Just a quick post to say that I updated my gallery -finally - and to reveal the names of the 5 paintings from the last post.

Stripes of Libra
The Other Side of The Story
Ciranda
Jungle Map
Marge

And, again, thanks to everybody who helped me with the names. It's actually very cool to read people's ideas and kind of get a sense of where they're coming from. And it is definitely a fun exercise to get 2 or more of those names and mix them together!

Have a great week and a fun Halloween!

The name of the game...or 'the game of the name'

If you like my Facebook page you've probably seen my post about finding names for some of my paintings. I usually have names for them by the time they're done - usually it's the first idea that comes into mind (those are the best!) - but some of them just don't speak to me as loudly, per se. Plus, in my opinion, there is a fine line between a cool name and a cheesy one; and sometimes it's hard to see that line when you're standing too close!

And that's why brainstoming is the best solution! Nothing better than a bunch of fresh eyes and fresh minds throwing in ideas to help spark creativity! Anyway, here are the paintings I needed help with:

And their names:

1- White Stones
2- Circus Town
3- Night Swimming
4- Once Upon a Purple
5- Pedaling Through
6- Luna Verde
7- Golden Forest
8- Leafy Birds
9- Cricrilicious
10- For Your Eyes Only



Today I have a few more that I can't seem to name:



I need suggestions!!! Pretty please?!

Excuses, excuses...

I don't have any. Excuses, I mean, for having abandoned my blog for 7 - SEVEN! - months.
So why don't I just show you what ELSE I've been doing?


I had some notebooks made and they turned out really cute. Some are still in my Etsy Shop.


And these are all finished painting, soon to be found in my store.























Got the new iphone, so I HAD to get a new case. ;-)



This one is my latest. Full of texture and "very different", according to my friends.



Finally, just for fun, here is the evolution of a painting:









Have a great week, dear one person who is still reading this!
