While I love to write, I have a difficult time writing about my art and finding titles that I like. I can easily tell the story visually but I find it more challenging to find words for them. With my Fashionable Portrait series, I find phrases from the fashion magazines I cut apart. I like finding these random phrases. I have a box with text snippets that I glance through, looking for just the right one.
I have lately started pulling phrases from Virginia Woolf's To The Lighthouse. It is a favorite book of mine, and offers brilliant fragments. My collages often seem like poems to me. They are snippets of a story, not the whole story. In this way, their titles too need to have a bit of poetry to them.
