Struggling to name an artwork? You aren’t alone.

I’ve had quite a few people confess that their Untitled artwork is more about feeling intimidated or overwhelmed to choose a name for their art

rather than it being integral or important to the meaning of the work.

I fear we often become too invested in the work and take it all so seriously, we lose the lightness and joy we found while making it. This extends to the naming of works.

So in honor of some creative play I offer several strategies you can use to help you come up with ideas for your work.

Here are the links I mentioned:

Please remember: there is no such thing as perfect. And you can change your mind, which means you can change the title, too!

Do you have a strategy that helps you name your art? Share your experience in the comments below.
