Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

Poor, nameless creature. Looks like I'm too late (and names aren't my forte) but it looks like he wants something so: Please or I'm Begging You or Why Not?
Good luck. I'm sure you came up with a better name than I did.
Love the colors. Well done.

Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

I'm too late too. Just in case you've found a bit of extra time, I would have suggested, "Cookie...please?" OR, "My Soul for a Cookie..." (maybe "doggie bone" could be substituted for "cookie")

Great painting! What soulful eyes! I hope you'll let us know what you came up with and why you needed the name by 11.

Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

Wow - thanks so much for all your help... Actually Nancy you Won! I had a moment to check before sending it off to the printer for it's postcard and it's now called.... "Please".

Now I know where to go for help when it comes time to name my paintings. This is truly one of my weaker skills.

Nancy, Kate, Cindy, Annie, Pencils... if you want a postcard sent you you after your efforts here, just PM me your mailing address and I'll send you one.

Whew... the order is in the works!

Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

I like the name and the work is great. love how you really pushed those colors, its a zinger!

and i too hate the name-game. i dont' play it well! i used to hate those ppl who'd put something like 'summer #11' but now even that seems more than i can come up with! argh! 'please' fits this well, cuz anybody who's ever seen that 'look' will know exactly what it means! nicely done!

Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

'Please' is a perfect title for this wonderful dog painting! I love the expression and also the punched up coloring. Well done!

Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

Chewie, Pat - thanks so much. My DH asked me why the postcard says... "Please".... so... I guess it's self explanatory to artists but perhaps not all viewers!

I'll keep you posted on how it frames up and sells... hmm.. fingers crossed.

Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

Sweet painting. I'm a sucker for dogs. To me, that expression (with the silly hat on) says, "Why me?". LOL

Re: Urgent help.. need a name!

The title you chose is perfect. It says "Only Have Eyes for You" to me. My daughter loves this portrait! She has a little dachshund too. Great colors!
