UPDATE ON : Can you help me title this painting?


City of Gold
8" x 8" x 1.5"
Oil with a palette knife of cradled board
SOLD at The Red Inn

I love coming up with titles for my paintings. As I am painting, it usually comes to me. But this time I need your help. Nothing is bubbling to the surface so I'd love to hear your suggestions.

By the way, this was painted from a photo I took on one of my recent visits to New York.

Thanks, good luck, and I look forward to your inspirational suggestions!

UPDATE 9.26.11 Wow-what a great list of suggested titles I received from everyone. I really appreciate them all and am going to put them all in the hopper to use for future paintings. I decided on City of Gold-this seemed to be a theme running throughout a lot of the suggestions.
Also-for Sherry, that little red building "dwarfed by the city that grew up around it" is the Merchant's House Museum on East Fourth Street. It looks like a really interesting place and I have to put it on the list for our next visit.

What street is it in NY? Maybe just the street name? I subscribe to the Keep it Simple rule of thumb:))

One person on Facebook had suggested "Golden Day." I think the idea of "gold" and "fall" seem appropriate because of the ochre. An especially nice painting!

It looks like a morning in town to me, or morning in the city. The quality of the light makes me feel like a good stretch, or is it because I saw this in the morning? How about Morning Light?

I always have a hard time with that too. "city light"

Roberta said...

On a different tangent, how about "Paint and the City"

Another beauty, Ann! Your cityscapes are simply the best. Maybe because I know this is NY and we just passed 9.11...but all that comes to mind for me is "United We Stand." I am so curious about that smaller building dwarfed by the city that grew up around it. Do you know what it is?

Guilded came to mind for me.

Wonderful choice of titles and I can't wait to hear about what you see in the museum on your next trip!
