name-my-painting contest.

I just finished a new original painting on 12x12" stretched canvas;

I edited the photos and was ready to create my listing,
and had everything ready to welcome it to my shop
except one crucial thing:
a name.

I probably have the hardest time naming my work.
Sometimes it comes easy; other times, it's the most difficult part of the entire process.

So after a chat with Belinda,
I concluded that the best solution was to let my bloggers help me decide...
And since it's been a while since I've given away free stuff,
this calls for a steppie contest giveaway!

{ The Untitled Painting }

So, here's the break-down of how it'll all work;

{ 1 } Take your best shot at naming the painting above!
( it's ok to come up with more than one
as long as the name hasn't already been submitted )

{ 2 } Comment to this post with your submissions!
+ get them in by this friday (march 6th)
+ be sure to include your e-mail

{ 3 } Come back to my blog on Monday, March 9th:
+ to find out what name submission i have chosen!
+ to find the link to the new listing

want my blogs sent straight to your inbox?
see the widget on the right-hand side!

Aside from bragging rights, the participant with the chosen name will win:

+ an exclusive 6x6" archival art print of this very painting,
before i even release it in my shop!

+ surprise freebies included in your package;
this can include my greeting cards, postcards, buttons...
it's a surprise -- that's the best part!

+ shout out on my blog and on the item listing for naming the painting.
if you've got your own etsy shop, this is free exposure!

While I enjoy simplicity, I am also a fan of funky, out-of-the-box names. So get creative, good luck, and I cannot wait to hear what names you all come up with!


P.S. If any of you would like to feature this contest giveaway on your own blog, please feel free to do so! Send me a link to the post, and I will also feature your blog on Monday's post!
