Hee hee. I love them! Still haven't decided, but these are great.

I love them all, but my favorites so far are "hooked" "the sword" & "pirate's dilemma: beauty or booty" although I might just shorten it to "the dilemma" if I use it. I've also come up with one of my own--

"The sixty-four thousand dollar distraction"

--but I'm still not sure if I'll use that either. Although seeing as I thought of it myself, I think its pulling ahead in the running...

Any thoughts?

(ps. Haven't heard of the pirate sandokan, the tiger of malaysia but I'd like to know more & I'll look it up when I get around to it. Always looking for things to inspire me.)

is the tiger from india? then it could be

"the dalai lama dilemma"
haaa.

since the pirate is obvious, shortening is a remedy;
"dilemma; beauty or booty"

and ya wanna have a title thats fun to say.
can you imagine a couple of wealthy art patrons sitting around in the oak panelled ol boys club:

"hey dude. ya gotta swing ovah to my crib and check out my new aquisition.... Dude!"

"yea dude?! Whuzzit called?!"

" Dillemma; beauty or booty"

"wow. righteously wicked bitchin! cant wait. ... dude"

( the dollar amount title almost takes it away from a fantasy realm and brings it to modern times. One thinks instantly of that old game show as well as that modern colloquialism title is taken from )

Well put & duly noted. Been thinking about the dilemma thing. I love the title, but to me the painting's more about how he's become distracted & she's about to hack his head off. Leaning back towards "Hooked" or how about "The curse of the Ruby", "The Ruby's curse" or just "Ruby's curse"?

I dunno...
is ruby the gal in da pic?
will she curse Tony if he steals da gem?
but seriously...
curse sounds un naturally foreboding for such a ...well, to me; comfortable lighthearted whimsical scene ... but I'm anal-izing it too much arent't I...

duuuh. I just now noticed the sword in the left of pic.
She may get in a slightly solid whack with that cross handle fencing sword, but she may be worse for wear as he will get a good "left hook" in there...
(smug austin powers look)

hey; was it intentional that; that sword is related to a sabre and that tiger is related to...

naaahhh!

Yeah. I think 'Ruby' is the girl in the pick. Although maybe that's just what "Tony" calls her. Actually the pirate's name is "Jack" ("Jack & Ruby")

Your right about the forboding part. There's a dark undertone to the pic, but the fantasy/whimsical thing is definitely there too, and I probably shouldn't draw away from that with a title that's too dark.

Okay, stumped again... Maybe I just need an adjective. "The ___________ Distraction" or "A ____________ distraction"
