"What's a YAP?" you ask... "YAP" simply stands for "Yet Another Painting." Every person sees something different in abstract art. Rather than steering the viewer's imagination in a certain direction by giving titles to my paintings, I simply call them "YAPs," which is also meant as a pun on having become quite the prolific artist :-)

Which title would you give this piece? Please let me know in the comments! Thanks for looking, and please don't forget to upvote and resteem if you liked my art. Catch you next time!

"Was ist denn ein YAP?" fragst Du dich... "YAP" steht für "Yet Another Painting", im Sinne von "schon wieder ein Bild". Jeder Mensch sieht etwas Anderes in abstrakter Kunst. Anstatt mit einem Titel die Fantasie meiner Betrachter in eine bestimmte Richtung zu lenken, nenne ich meine Bilder ganz einfach "YAPs", auch als selbstironische Anlehnung an meine künstlerische Produktivität :-)

Welchen Titel würdest Du diesem Bild geben? Schreib' es in die Kommentare! Danke für's Anschauen und bitte vergiss nicht dein Upvote und Resteem, wenn dir meine Malerei gefallen hat. Bis zum nächsten Mal!

Ich würde dieses Bild "Die Feuerblumen im Sturm" nennen. Sieht Hammer aus.

Ich gebe den Bildern keinen Namen, weil ich will ja den Betrachter nicht beeinflussen. Trotzdem ein gute Idee, lieber @seo-boss :-)

Mit Glueck ein !BEER. Ich wünsche euch einen schönen Feiertag

Command accepted!

Hey @caro-art, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

This one is like an impressionistic garden bouquet. Maybe call it "Summer Garden"

It's a great idea, but I don't like to name my paintings. Let the viewer decide what they see; that's half the fun :-)

I understand your perspective. However – as someone with 25+ years in design for print, with marketing included in my design education, plus experience running a café – I can tell you that people remember things with names better and will gravitate to titled choices.

For example, in our café, we offered hundreds of flavored coffees. We did this by stocking over 50 flavored syrups. But, just offering the choices for them to decide on their own sold little to none of those products. So, I created a menu of named coffee drinks combining our flavoring options. And then, we sold the crap out of all those flavorings. Offer someone cocoa and crème de menthe syrup for their coffee and they look askance. Call it "The Corsican" and they can't get enough (the combination was one of our top sellers). The same went for the chocolate in coffee; we sold very few; but, call it "Cappuccino au Chocolat" and it became our top seller.

I found the same to be true in the Starving Artists group. Named artwork sold readily. Unnamed artwork, not so much.

It's the same reason that generics in the store sell less than brand names. Intellectually, everyone knows most of the generics are made by the same companies who make the brand named products, but packaged without the brand name. Everyone still prefers a pair of Wrangler jeans to an unbranded or store brand pair of jeans at Walmart – even though the same manufacturer makes the store brand. Everyone still prefers to pay for the brand name.

Humans are weird. We need the names. We want the brands.

Thank you very much for taking so much time and explaining this in such detail. I can totally see your point and agree with it. So far, I'm hardly selling any pieces and I'm not actively looking to do so. It's a hobby. This, of course, is subject to change, and you can be sure, I'll remember your coffee story when the time comes. Thanks again, Denise :)

You are nothing but a BULLY who is bringing only negativity and is turning the STEEM into a veritable SHITCOIN! Looked at the price of STEEM lately? GO FUCK YOURSELF, FASCIST BROOD!

Please don't buy votes, it hurts steem more than you can imagine. If you have any doubts go read this post:

I appreciate you having the decency to at least explain yourself. Thx for that. My views on the matter are well known and I'm tired of discussing them anymore. Your activities are censorship and you're throwing your weight around to bully a "weaker" person. Fine, nothing I can do about it.

But you know what? I have ceased to make regular videos because of you and your ilk already. Now I have started a power-down and will probably leave Steem altogether. Once again, one less content producer. I just don't need the aggravation to put up with you. And I'm not the only one! Good luck with "protecting your investment" then.

Wake up! You're trying to mess with what used to be a reasonably free market and influence it in your particular direction. These things never work out - the hardly existing value of Steem should be a clear message! Down, down, down... What do you think the people you piss on (and who leave) tell their friends? Is that your #newsteem improved Hard-Fork-Yada-Yada-Onboarding-Promotion-Scheme???

And you folks wonder why you can't attract big Youtubers to the platform... Your behavior makes the greedy, patronizing, overbearing Google conglomerate look like the lesser evil! How blind can you be? But, hey, what's one less content producer in the big scheme of things, right?

Your behavior is what hurts Steem - more than you can imagine.
