And here is the progress.  Tomorrow I'll paint in the guy in black.  What name should I give this one?  Man in Black?

a view from the studio.  The cloud on the left hanging from the rafters is a prototype for my kid's school party.  I'm organizing all the decors...

Help me decide the title of this painting

I've thought of three titles.
Tell me which one you like best and if you have another idea leave a comment.

is the title voted, thanks for participating

100x120 cm oil on canvas

This will be either in my show in May or in the salon in June.

I working with a different technique than normal, less alla prima. Last week my studio neighbor asked me when I was going to stop painting by numbers. I didn't flare up, offended, but I did try to justify myself.  
He said I could do better.  So I thought about it. 
He graduated from the Beaux Arts de Paris and is teaching.  I may not like his work and think he's a failure of an artist because he's a teacher. This is a rotten unfair opinion, life is different for everyone, he's younger than I, has a few kids.  I can't consider him a failure because he is teaching painting but I do.  
I thought about what he said and I like him because he says what he thinks straight in your face. 
I decided to try to paint differently and here is the result.

Thanks Phillip, you've helped me free my brush.  
You're a teacher who see people's qualities.  I appreciate your opinion.  Now get your ass in the studio and paint.
