Pearls of Affection or Terms of Endearment?

"Happiness held is the pearl; happiness shared is the flower." 
      And I have a deep affection for both  ~Laura Leede


















Roses And Pearls (untitled), Watercolour, Ink and Acrylic Painting

This painting is finished and I couldn't be happier with it!  I haven't decided on the title for this one yet, but I'm leaning towards either Pearls Of Affection or Terms of Endearment.  Do You Have A Preference?

Pearl jewelry has long been a favorite of mine and this is such a fun way to include them in my paintings.  Watch for more paintings in this series throughout the coming months. 

Did You Know? 
Pearls symbolize wisdom acquired through experience. They are believed to attract wealth and luck as well as offer protection. Known for their calming effect, pearls can balance one's karma, strengthen relationships, and keep children safe. The pearl is also said to symbolize the purity, generosity, integrity, and loyalty of its wearer.  I like that!

Oh Laura your painting is gorgeous. I love both titles but Pearls of Affection is my pick. Hope you have a super day. Hugs!

Either title suites it, the pearls are a beautiful backdrop for the roses. Love hearing the meaning of pearls, I should wear mine more often!

Thanks so much Deborah! I think Pearls of Affection is the winner.

A pat on the back for a job well done is a good thing. But every once in a while an artist would like to hear something that really lifts their game up a notch. Don't you think? Everyone comments from their own point of reference. Some artists recognize that part of their future lies in the field of licensing. Most do not. However for those who have the stomach for it ... "Once Mary focused her talent on greeting cards, success came quickly. As her card line grew in size and popularity, it drew attention from other companies anxious to license her artwork on a wide range of products including calendars, T-shirts, mugs, gift books, rubber stamps, ceramic figurines, fabric and a list that's grown to include nearly 6,500 products over the years, with more than $1 billion in lifetime retail sales. " see - http://www.maryengelbreit.com/pages/meet-mary
then take a look at her resume of companies that she has license agreements with - http://www.maryengelbreit.com/pages/me-licensees
and also see - http://mariabrophy.com/business-of-art/five-steps-to-closing-a-deal-artists-trade-show-follow-up.html
If you get past the Garfield story without needing an aspirin to maintain your sanity ... you'll find that as you dig deeper there are tremendous possibilities - for example - http://creativeconceptsdesignstudio.blogspot.com/2013/11/artist-007-license-to-draw-with-two.html
Good luck to you.
