As I've been working on this series that I'm currently calling 'Fashion Plates' I am stumped on titles. Because my work was more about feelings and a bit of a story or fairytale in the past, it was easy to use my imagination, but since these are based on photos of my daughter in period costumes that she created, I'm uncertain. Do I give them the titles of books that they remind me of, in this case Anna Karenina or War & Peace, or do I give them names of women...the other painting I've almost completed reminds me of Marie Antoinette...or do I give them variations of my daughter's name? She's Katherine Anna which is a regal and European name, which this image reminds me of, and other names like Kit or Kitty, Kissing Kate, or some other old western variation for yet another painting I'm currently working on. There's also Katya (which I think would suit this painting), Kay, Kat, Katyusha, Kasia, Katherina (who she is named after), Katriona, Kathleen, Katrina, Katelynn, Tina, Trina, Wren...and it seems the list goes on. Perhaps the pieces in this series won't be named until there are a collection of them. Oh the possibilities!
