I have to thank Sting and The Police for their intelligence in their song lyrics.
So many times I had listened, caught something I didn't know and threw open a dictionary so I could add another interesting word to my limited vocabulary.
My love for unusual and captivating words continue to this day as I name my art. I start with something relatively dull that vaguely describes the piece then search through dictionary definitions/adjectives/thesaurus listings for the word that perfectly captures the essence of my mood and/or desires while in the creative process.
In the end, I'm just as pleased with the name as I am with the art :)
