Large Abstract, needs a name... (already has a good home) by Kim Blair

Abstract, 48"x 60", acrylic on gallery profile canvas

Yesterday we delivered and installed the large abstract painting commission, 48"x 60" acrylic on canvas.  It looks fantastic in the space!  I thought you might like to see the wall space before and after the painting was hung... along with some close-up 'snippets' in order to get a better overall 'feel' for the piece.

*The painting has not been named yet.

As part of this commission I thought it might be fun to give my clients the opportunity to participate in the naming of their painting.   While contemplating some titles last night we all thought it would be fun to ask my subscribers to offer suggestions too... so please let your creative juices flow and brainstorm some title suggestions for this large abstract painting.

The colour palette in this painting consists of various tints, tones and shades of grey, black, brown, rust, purple, teal/aqua along with a few tiny hints of orange. (Too bad the title "Fifty Shades of Grey" is already taken!)

A glass of wine by the cozy fireplace (off to the right of the painting) will help the ideas to flow this fall/winter, but my clients liked the idea of asking my subscribers to offer title suggestions... the more ideas to choose from the better!

Anytime you come up with a title for this painting just pop it into an email to me.  Once a name has been chosen I will let you know in a future blog.

We are looking forward to your creative title suggestions...
