Continuing my Untitled Series with an homage to the right hand of Jerry Garcia.
Where Rothko got off?
Back some years, the titles of my drawings were just as important as the visions they conveyed, or so I thought. It wasn’t until my Marketing Guru brother suggested that I name the yet untitled piece the name of a frequently searched item on the internet. Hmmm, I thought. That was the basis for me naming one of my earlier pictures “Pieta”. It actually never increased sales but I thought an innovative, yet slightly sneaky way to get my art to the masses.
Fast forward to Autumn 2014 when I completed a picture of the coin operated binoculars onboard the Orient Point-New London Cross Sound Ferry. It was in need of a title but one just never came. When I dropped the picture off to have framed, still title-less, I needed to sign the matte… “Untitled #1” it became.
The instant I signed that matte I realized that I had to continue on a series of Untitled images. As they are completed, without much fanfare, I will post them. Here is Untitled #1.
