Sometimes the significance of a piece – for me – comes to me after I draw it and name it. In this case I realized I had drawn a picture of the drastic change from bachelorhood to having a wife and her daughter living with me. It’s all good; they are sweethearts … just a drastic change )))
A common theme in my work is faces in faces in faces. Sometimes it’s used to show a group of people, but more often it’s used to show a memory, an emotion, or the spirit.
The name for a piece usually pops into my head just as it’s finished … sometimes I have to struggle a little bit, but not too much. One friend suggested that I don’t name them and allow the viewer more freedom to interpret. I think the tittle is part of the expression and the viewer is always free to interpret.
