Title needed-sold

Oil on linen, 8" x 10"
I've been offered a one person show at the FAN Gallery in Philadelphia in September, so for the past week I've been stretching canvases and organizing my subject matter to facilitate things. I'll need 30-40 paintings for this show- yikes!- so I'm going to be a very busy girl for months to come.
I'm not very good at coming up with titles for paintings- your suggestions for the one above are welcome!

Art appreciation-sold

Oil on canvas panel, 6" x 8"
I hate when museums put ropes in front of paintings, because when I'm at a museum I've got my nose right up to the surface, just like these folks. It's the only way to see how it's done.

Daisies and apples-sold

Oil on canvas, 6" x 6"
One last painting with the same produce... It's fun to try different color and lighting looks for similar still lifes, especially when they're really small and you can get them done in an hour or two.

Oil on canvas, approx. 8" x 8"
Last night I went to Kate's Studio to paint the portrait model. It's been a while since I've gone, although I'm determined to get there more often. I enjoyed painting our model, a sweet if sleepy girl named Tasha.
