New Painting

I need a name for this painting... any ideas?  I use fruits, leaves and flowers as well as doodles from my subconscious for inspiration.

I'm also considering adding white gouache in places for more interest.  I don't know.  There are parts that I think look a bit awkward (like the circle with the weird purple spiky things) and maybe the white gouache will tone them down.


I really like this new Aquabord that I tried.  It's like a canvas board for watercolor paints.  I bought mine at Hobby Lobby, but it seems there are a bunch of online dealers that sell it too.  It doesn't absorb as quickly into the surface as paper, but I like it a lot because you don't have to worry about wrinkling paper and the board itself is actually not the expensive.  Another thing I like is that if you want to remove a color or blend a color, you can get a napkin wet and wipe it off so it's lighter.

Here are some detail shots.

i love it don't change it. the circle with the spikey thing looks like an eye. i've been doodling a lot lately but hadn't thought to put it on canvas with paint.
