then i started to draw the scene outside my window. this drawing is titled, "rain on doggett street". i think it is important to label these drawings, besides having them dated, so that people can place themselves with the image.
i used to think that titling artwork was trite and "beneath" the artist. how foolish i was! it is so important for viewers to have something to identify with (especially if the piece is an abstract). people need to know even just a little bit about the work, because you may not be present to talk to them about it. i have found that 99% of my sales occurred when i had talked to the buyer, or they had previously spoken to me at another event about my works. yes, it does pay to have a verbal repertoire for your art!
