I find that giving a name to my art pieces can be a bit of a challenge especially for my print work which is often more non-representational. For print work I think that a single word often looks better when signing the monotype. It does take a while...I look at the print, the colours, the overall design. Sometimes, but rarely, when I am working on a piece I already have the name/title in mind. More often than not, I will walk past a piece for several days looking at it with "fresh" eyes. Often it is as I am drifting off to sleep that I run through a list of potential names....very much like mind mapping/brainstorming.

This last print was particularly bothersome... I liked how atmospheric it looked, at least in my eyes. I initially thought of the atmospheric pollution, the planets, the Milky Way until I arrived at Nebulous. I don't know if it works but I like it.
