    I love titles that allude.
    If I see a connection (in this case the composition similarities) I do a bit of reading about what I want to allude to, Laocoon, and inevitably a title pops out at me.
    And sometimes I'm so obtuse that the title is reduced to a private joke. But hey, I like to laugh, don't you?

    I agree with you on this. Often our mind creates images that represent something which we will discover only much later in life.

    It shows that you have a good memory, and a fine visual memory.

    I found you via blogs of note – congrats on that!

    Jeff, I so agree with your comment about the typical classical allusions being a bit pompous, but in this case, I don't think that it would come off that way… mainly because you are aware of it. I'm sure something will pop into your head while you finish this that will act as a bridge between the historical reference and your own contemporary voice. Titles can add another layer to our work or not… it's your choice.

    Also, I am grateful for you cancer post. My family has recently had several health scares that are still too fresh, and open to share. But your post gives me courage to do so… at some point.

    May you live a long cancer free life and Happy Painting!
