Love to paint, hate the naming. HELP!



There's alot of glare, a hurried photo. Any naming idea's? Pink Azalea with bee just doesn't cut it for me, and, well, I'm terrible at names. This is a pretty big piece weighing in at 39" x 60". I can't even back up enough in the studio to get a good picture. Oh well, another day at the office, and I'm not complaining.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Love to paint, hate the naming. HELP!

What about "natural attraction "or simply "pollination in pink " ?

Very beautiful painting! I'm no help with naming..can never think of names for my own...sometimes the most difficult part of the painting!

oooooo yea. pollination in pink. will grab my thesaurus and play off of that.

This was my Easter painting this year, and these bushes are just now blooming. It is a glorious and magnificent thing to behold, as my neighbor does nothing to his bushes (which surprises me every year he gets these displays), and he has over a dozen (all different colors) that bloom for a few weeks.

Thanks for the suggestion fearless.

A beauty to behold indeed - this is gorgeous!

(One of the reasons I like to watch The Masters golf from Augusta is to see these in full glory!)

Titles? ....... Glory Bee!

Re: Love to paint, hate the naming. HELP!

Some of the things about this painting I would like to push into the name. I've read some articles on naming or titling your work, and the first thing that comes to mind is a sentimental name. when I first saw these flowers, as I do when I view most flowers, is their short life span, and the need to drink this in before it is gone.

another theme I want to include is the color. PINK.

I'm continuing to let my subconsciousness work on this too. I look at it before putting my head down for the night.

Still open for suggestions along these lines.
Thanks for those that have responded, you are the BEST!

Delmus, wow and wow!! Yes, I do like the Bee, too. He is a little 'treasure' to find in all of the pink. 'Radiating Pink'? Names are not always easy, but it has been proven that the name helps to grab the attention and helps to sell the painting.

Re: Love to paint, hate the naming. HELP!

Gorgeous indeed--beautiful work! How about "In the Pink"? The phrase means "In perfect condition, especially of health" which ties in nicely to the fleeting perfect health of the blooms.
