Hi everyone,
(Don't forget to vote  :) )

By now most of you are aware of my growing (38 so far) "The Nature Series".

Also you'll know they have been titled like this: "The Nature Series no. 1" etc.

I'm about to enter a competition and a couple of our members suggested I give it a real title ("Paradise Colours" is what I would go with - similar to the suggestion but not quite) folowed by #34 in The Nature Series. 

However, in my mind consistency was the name of the game, so that would mean naming them all (not to mention it would look a bit silly on my website if only one in the series had a name.

I've had a look and some give obvious suggestions to names, but not others, so I am in a muddle. I only have two days to put my submission in so I need to decide one way or the other.

Obviously could already give this one a name and then name the rest any old time really.

So what do you think, name or no name. Is it really that important. I kind of like the idea of the viewer deciding, but some people do seem to like a name.

when selling your paintings should all have titles

Thanks Nolan.

Gotta come up with 38 names then...
Hmm wonder if "Titleless" counts as a Title? :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

it sure is ;D

You will see when you enter a painting into an exhibit, there is always place for the title on the tag. They then also usually make a brochure with the titles, artist name and price in it that the buyers can take. Often the brochure will also have the painting photo in it as well, but not always
