Many people believe that art speaks for itself. “A picture paints a thousand words.” And it does. It speaks to each of us differently, but sometimes it adds greatly to the experience if the artist also whispers to us a little gem in the form of a name, a title.
I had started a practice of making Sunday afternoons “Experimental Sunday”. It's a designated time to play with new materials or old materials I haven't picked up in years, without there being any kind of agenda. It's not a work day. It's not about the painting sitting a third of the way finished, or making something that might sell, or wrestling my heart and soul out onto paper.
