Give me the words...

I like poetic titles. But I am stuck on this one... the song that was playing as I pondered what to name this piece sang to me softly: "give me the words....that tell me, everything..."

How appropriate... Please help me find the appropriate words to title this piece... what story do you cypher?

Part of my ongoing attempt to finish all the drawings that I started and never completed. I drew this one well over a year ago, and was too trepaditious to colour at the time, as my watercolour skills were still utterly feeble. Very very happy to have finished it!


  1. I LOVE everything about this water color! Very Victorian-like and I love your chosen color palette to go with it.

  2. I absoutely adore this painting <3
    I think a great title is from the song you mentioned "Tell me everything"
    She looks like she is going to listen intently, not breathe a word to anyone, then perhaps, someday use that information against you.
    A bit "Dangerous Liaisons" if you get what I mean?
    This has to be one of my favourites (so far).

  3. I agree with Jayne. This is my (new) absolute favorite among your works. I am very bad at titles. I like "Tell me everything" very much. Alternatively, I could propose "The secret" (but it's not very original I am afraid)...
    Anyways, great piece! :)

  4. This is absolutely gorgeous Monika. She is so lovely. To me she seems to be harbouring a secret. She looks thoughtful and pensive, with a bit of sweet vulnerability. I am terrible at titles too...really the worst at naming my own paintings. But this is the story I picked up from her. xxx


Oh! How did you know? I absolutely adore comments, thank you! :-) I appreciate all the feedback I get xx
