What if an artist would name a painting after you? As the art lived on. passing from one generation to another, or to other collectors, you would be remembered.
Or what if you wanted to give someone special a unique gift of a painting named after them?
For instance, the postcard sized study for a Genesis Sunset could be entitled, Genesis Sunset Study for (Insert your name)___________. Further, if a large painting results from this study then that painting would also be entitled Genesis Sunset for (Insert your name)___________.
While this kind of naming is common for paintings of things that are commissioned. For instance, John Doe commissions an artist to create a portrait of his house (or mansion), then the painting might be entitled, John Doe’s House.
However for artworks that are not portraits or commissions, it is rare for the title to include a name of anyone, except perhaps a family member or friend of the artist.
In preparing to blog for the postcard sized Genesis Sunset show here, I needed a name. Since it is a new year, I thought I would once again entitle a sunset using the year and a letter from the Hebrew alphabet. However, there are only twenty two Hebrew letters, and this year because I am preparing many small works as rewards for my Crowd Funding campaign that begins after Passover and Easter to fund a full sized book, and also because the images used for the book are page5 sized, also small, because the strokes in my regular sized and large paintings when reduced to a book page sized photographic image. So, for the smaller free e book that will be given away prior and possibly during the campaign to introduce a book that is very different from any book about art, or inspiration, plus, for rewards for the crowd funding campaign, I am going to need to name many new images, especially of sunsets and these first books start with Genesis 1 and the theology that UnGraven Image Art theory depicts via symbol-strokes.
So it dawned on me that an interesting solution would be to use option to have a painting, especially a sunset, named for one’s self or a loved one, especially as rewards for the Crowd Funding campaign.
This especially works for me, as I enjoy finding ways for others to participate or interact in my art, especially for shows. This naming idea includes the collector’s participation in the naming process itself.
Instead of the usual “(Untitled)’ one sees in captions for artist’s works, I am calling these Crowd Funding Rewards “Genesis Sunset to be Titled by Collector”. Since this is the first, to distinguish, it is #1.

Post Conceptual UnGraven Image Art theory is based at the intersection of ancient spiritual wisdom and cutting -edge contemporary science. It shows us a new and enhanced spiritual and science based way to see the world. It is a life changing vision that can even become an actual new way of seeing that is a fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Can this be true?
