"Name the Painting First" VIDEO

(scroll down for more info and links)

Dear Artist,

Name the Painting First.


How do I know when a painting is done? 


For me, this really works and keeps me focused to the BIG IDEA. I start with a series - a theme, like "The Magic Circus" or "Soul Mates." Then I pick several titles that will work well with my series. I name the painting before I begin. When the painting resembles the title and I'm happy with it, I'm finished!


A painting image should communicate that title and concept of the series. 

I start every solo show this way...

  • Decide on the concept
  • Name the series
  • Write my artist statement
  • Select the titles for the paintings
