Heading Home (Top 'O the Mornin)

I finished this small (6x8") oil painting of a Cod fisherman returning to shore at sunrise. I sent this off to one of the galleries down the Cape with the title "Top 'O the Mornin". If you are familiar with this blog, you know I don't like naming paintings, I'm just not good at it and it always seems like I'm trying too hard. Anyhoot, the gallery owner changed it to "Heading Home"..thankfully. Much better and simple.

Ha, that's a good one. I greet my neighbor with top o the mornin once in a while.
I really like this one Todd, no matter what you call it.
Titles are hard sometimes.

Gorgeous Todd! Really wonderful. Evocative of a Wyeth or Bellows. I think the addition of the figure is strong. Hope you're well. I'm showing at Mary's in July. Maybe see you there! Best, Cooper

Thanks my man..I've asked a friend to help me name them in the future..between him and my wife I should be all set with painting titles...thank God!

Todd Bonita said...

Bellows and Wyeth..I'm blushing..you're too kind my good man. I'm very well thanks, I'm going to the Cape in July and will stop in Mary's to have a look at your stuff. I need to get her some paintings soon.

All the best.
