Syntagna (Arrangement)

Mixed Media, 22 X 28, framed 

I found this word and saved it for a painting title. It's definition is,  "A juxtaposition of forms that relate to but are different from one another". I thought it was a perfect title for an abstract painting. This has several pieces of collage on it including some clown faces in a row next to the vertical blue stripe on the top left. That's making me think that maybe I should title it "Send in the Clowns".  Thinking up painting titles can be such a chore sometimes, no wonder some are just titled "Opus 5 or 32", it would be so much easier to keep track that way. I hope you click on the picture so that you can see all the texture and layers that are in this piece. There is a lot to look at. I'd love to hear some comments concerning the title choices, what do you think?
