Do You Title or Remain Un?

Tango Happens
by Cheyenne MacMasters

I don’t know about you, but I enjoy the adventure of discovering a title for my work. Harder to do with a basically abstract painting, but then that makes it all the more sweet when you have the “ah ha!” moment. I could have called this “Two light beams” since that was my original inspiration. Or, I could have called it “Dare to Enter” since I’m attracted to the doorway concept. But, while I was putting the finishing strokes on the canvas, tango music began playing with that seductive intensity that takes you into a foreign realm and I saw the duet of courtship in front of me. Tango happens. Now it’s not just an image, but a feeling as well.

  1. As you know dragonshades is about colour and images but adding a title is a great way of pushing me into a different way of communicating. I recognise that aha click of words and image as you step out of the intelectual and into the realm of pure vibration. You chose the perfect title.
