This spiral art reminds me of coasters for drinks, and from there to 'The Coasters', a favorite rock group of mine. They had such great hits as 'Searchin'', 'Yakety Yak', 'Along Came Jones', 'Charlie Brown', 'Poison Ivy', 'Little Egypt', 'Love Potion Number Nine', and several others. And so I chose to name this piece in memory of that group and those great hits. Moldy Oldies can make for a fun afternoon.
The artwork also reminds me of my mother's quilts, and the circles she painstaking sewed together by hand to make them. She was very talented and artistic and we got years of use and comfort out of her sewn creations.
This piece may well remind you of something different from your past. Other's title suggestions have been 'Cornocopia', 'Cornucopia Rainbow', 'In the Chips', 'Let the Chips Fall' (I also like 'Where They May') and 'Chinese Umbrellas'.

Creating art is - for me - a true give and take between what I attempt to do and what the evolving piece makes me do. Often, when I try to push the art in one direction, it responds differently and makes me take it in another. The art itself surprises me, and it directs me into the area it wants to be taken, rather than accepting what I try to make it do. And so I let myself go and the art takes over and the evolution excites, surprises and amazes me. I love it!
