Crush, Watercolor, 14 x 19″, ©Lynn Davis-Smith


This painting was juried into the 2010 Waterworks show of the Northwest Watercolor Society. I named it “Crush” as in teenage crush, or puppy love, and because my future studio dog, Archie, was literally getting crushed in the sofa! I often sort of agonize about how to name my paintings, but this one just came to me. I would be interested to hear how other artists decide to name their paintings. What’s in a name?  Please share your thoughts by commenting below.
