A couple of weeks before the challenge began, I made a list of title ideas. I always have a hard time thinking of a title. Late at night, under the gun so to speak. I have yet to use any of them.

While painting the stems, a song came to mind. Stand Tall. I remember this song being a favorite. “Inspirational”. I was only nine, so I seriously doubt I was recovering from a heart-break. Funny that his 1970’s suit compliments today’s painting. Not quite sure how to feel about that.



Hey, I think the comments are working again! Carol was able to make one. YAY!!! 

Still feel like I am going strong. Haven’t hit that wall. Maybe I won’t this round. Fingers crossed.

Thanks so much for sticking with me on this bumpy website ride! Enjoy  your Wednesday!


Take a look at Leslie’s gallery of amazing daily painters.

    The thing about making a list of titles is that it’s there for backup when/if you need it, and it’s good practice for loosening up your title making muscle in your brain. I have several huge lists, but sometimes, I still can’t find a title to match my happens, especially with flower paintings. That’s why I number all of mine, so I don’t have to go through the hassle of naming them. i’mcoughlazycough lol

    If you think 30 days is tough, you should try 365. 😀

      LOL, no, I think I will leave 365 to pro’s like you for now. I am in awe of all you accomplish Katie 😉 But I bet it helps to have all those empty canvases at your beck and call 😉 Keep up the fabulous work my friend! 🙂

    LOL at the matchy-match of your palette and the 1970’s suit!

    Maybe your having a list of titles in advance freed you up to generate titles in the moment later as you painted : )

    Love the quality of the background here in Standing Tall. You are going strong, Sheila!

      LOL, Struck me funny how the universe works. (the suit.) You could be right Dotty. I usually don’t name them until I am posting them. But sometimes a title comes as I am painting. I think I could have done a few more splatters of color, but I like that effect. So great to hear from you Dotty – Missed you all 🙂


Thanks for visiting my blog and saying hello! Always great to hear from you!
