Help! My newest artwork needs a title! Ideas??

I love portraying strong, independent women in my artwork. The cowgirl who was the inspiration for this piece is the amazing Becca Babolian, shooting from horseback. Thank you Becca and +Valarece Long  - country ladies who really rock!

I have a few tentative titles, but I would love your suggestions for the perfect title! What do you think?

Emerging singer/songwriter Hannah Lyndsay Lane is 15 years old with an incredibly beautiful voice.  She's getting ready to launch her debut CD soon.  I know she'll go far!

Thanks, +Alexandra Ortiz !  Within a week or so of the magazine coming out I have been invited to participate in a group art show on the female figure, and will have my own show at a gallery this summer.  Fun, fun!  :)

The Frame Gallery is proud to present “The Many Muses of Nikki Smith”, our featured artist for June, 2014. From Euterpe (the muse of song), to Terpsichore (the muse of dance) to Urania (the muse of science), Nikki Smith’s artwork takes inspiration from her life and passions.

About the Artist:

Currently featured on the cover of Flair Magazine, local Bryan, TX artist Nikki Smith was awarded the prestigious International FAA “Tony” Award for Artistic Merit in 2013. Smith’s artwork and articles are published in numerous issues of Cloth Paper Scissors, PAGES, and Somerset Digital Studios magazines as well as an artist profile in The Houston Chronicle. A self-taught artist and lifelong learner, her artwork has traveled to collectors in over a dozen countries and across the USA.

“My artwork is inspired by music, color and the human body. I believe that music has such an incredible power to move us, to change our state of mind. My artwork seeks to capture this transformative power of music through color and motion, often combining musical instruments and the female form to tell a story. As my style continues to evolve, I am excited to see where this artistic journey will take me.”

Visit The Frame Gallery this First Friday, June 6th (and throughout the month of June) to see new artwork by award winning artist Nikki Smith.

The 1st annual Wylde Women Art Show in downtown Bryan, Texas is going to be wild!  In addition to fabulous artwork celebrating the female figure, there will also be belly dancers performing at the opening reception on April 3rd 6:30/8:30pm.  I'll be unveiling new artwork never-before seen at the show, as well as a personal favorite. 

If you're in the Bryan, TX or College Station area, please join us April 3rd and 4th at Square 1 Art Studio to meet the artists.  (I love connecting with art lovers in person - stop by and say hello!)  The show runs through the 12th, and directions, times and a list of artists can be found here:

Artist, entrepreneur and mother... BookSmithStudio.com
Introduction
I am an artist, a mother, and an entrepreneur. I am following my passions and creating art that I love for the sheer joy of it! I hope it resonates with you as well.

If you would like to see more of my work, including my fine artwork, Music Lover's series, Art of Invention series, one-of-a-kind artist books, wee planets, tutorials and more, please visit my blog at: http://BookSmithStudio.com

I'm also on Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/nikkismithART and FaceBook and my artwork has appeared in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, PAGES magazine, Somerset Digital Studio magazine, Flair! magazine, and the Houston Chronicle.

My Music Lover's series seeks to convey the transformative power of music through artwork.  My Art of Invention series celebrates the adventurous, inventive spirit of our ancestors, bringing vintage patent drawings to life as modern decor.  I'm always exploring new techniques and discovering new ways to create beautiful, evocative artwork.

Escape. Dream. Believe.
