Poor Nameless Painting WINNER
I gave you two and a half days to come up with an awesome title to the nameless painting, and another two and a half days to vote for your favorite title. And after a 120 votes and sixteen painting titles, ya'll have decided that the painting should be named "Cardinal Elegance". A special thank you to Regine of Easton, PA - The clevah name-giver! Yay!

And as rozydhy has asked, what do the voters win? Well, Rozy (can I call you Rozy?) you have won a special place in my heart as well as the knowledge that you helped save this painting from having a really stupid and uninspiring title.

Thank you to all of you who submitted title ideas! Thank you to all voters! Ya'll rock!

The Poor Nameless Painting
Wow. I am completely blown away by the responses and creativity of people. I would hire ya'll as full time name-givers. Many of you came up with "Bird in the Hand". Ha. I'm one step ahead of you. I did a painting with this title a few years ago, so unfortunately that one is out. But don't you fret, you're still brilliant and beautiful and ya'll are so vr vr clevah! I think maybe I'll have to make this a voting thing. So, with no further ado VOTE NOW!

Vote only once please. Vote more than once and I'll tell Santa.

This original painting of the woman and bird needs a title or name. Have any suggestions? The winner who gives this nameless painting a title will receive a PRICELESS artist's proof print. Why priceless you ask? Well, only a very small number of test prints are made of this image to get the color correct. The artist proof you will receive will be ONE of a kind, signed, dated, titled, and marked as an "artist proof". Enter the contest by email: artbyshano (AT) gmail (dot) com, or by submitting your idea in the form of a comment. (Be sure I have your email addy if you are the most gifted name-giver of all!)
