I hesitate to sign this piece on the front, because it works in any orientation. Title suggestions appreciated.
Mixed media: acrylic, paper, markers on canvas 16"x20"

I never sign abstracts on the front because I think it's too out of place.

As for the name, it reminds me of a stained glass window.

The black on my monitor is too overpowering. I donk know what others think but I think it would work more if you could bring it down a notch. That said, I like it a lot.

Not good with names I'm afraid.

laf, Ed, Katie, la, thanks for your input.

Katie, I think the "black" being too dark is just the photograph. The darks are mostly blue and green in reality. I will try to rephotograph it.

I like the second rotation. It makes it look like the heat of the center square is rising.
For title maybe something with the word 'heat.'
Heat Rises.

Thanks for coming back for a second look, Katie.

Thanks for the title suggestion, Chris.

Title Brainstorm:

'Square Fire'?
On my monitor all 3 are the same rotation. Is somebody spooking me? Or is Chrome trying to be smart?
Beautiful piece, Jim.

Wonderful painting.

This is more like the title of a country/western song ... 'Burning Your Photos.'

Just excellent. How about:

And the Dark was Overwhelmed
The Rhythm of Ecstasy
In Abundance

Thanks for all your comments and great title suggestions. I'm calling it "Chroma'.

Beautiful piece, Jim.

Susan, originally the first and second picture had different orientations....oddly, now they are the same. Go figure!!

Did you upload them with an ipad? The same behavior occurs over in the acrylics forum.

Gonna go with la's sunset party and Susan's square fire and suggest "Sunset Squared Party".

Who doesn't like a party?

Cool painting. Well done.


And it's so fun to wanna name paintings I think we should all title all of our paintings "Name This Painting".
