Curbsides, 12x9", Pastel on sanded paper

Don't you just hate it when artists title their work "Untitled" or #4? A title is everything if you are going to be serious, so why not give your work some credibility? I read a great post by fellow pastelist Marla Baggetta on titling her work...read it here. She made me think more about my naming. Sometimes a title will pop out in my head even before I put pastel to paper. Other times things just don't click. I might find them in a discussion, a walk in the neighborhood, or in a song or poetry. This one has not come to me yet, but will come soon once the egg has hatched. Until then, happy painting!
Update: I finally came up with a title this morning..."Curbsides". Seems fitting.
