I recently completed a painting featuring this year's Championship team. I have been brainstorming a name for it and could use some help. If you have any ideas, please let me know. Below is an image of the painting and description:

The painting features each member of the team along with Coach K. The background features images including highlights of their run through the tournament, their National Championship celebration, and their return to Cameron Indoor Stadium. The original painting is 26x40" and was done using metallic acrylic paint.

I don't really have an idea for a name, but I wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE the painting. Great work. You can really identify the players. Singler's picture captures some of his personality, too. Mason's looks exactly like him.

Wow.

I'd love to have a smaller version of this framed and on the wall of my office. Or have this image on a t-shirt.


As for the name, how about "Nice Guys Finish First," or "Underdogs Get the W" or "The Run to the Title"? I don't know. There have got to be better names.

I have no name, but it certainly appeals to me. I recognize all players.

Really enjoy the painting - great job - one small thing - Zoubek looks like he's about to get hungry for some brains ...

The painting is great and hope that you get prints produced that will be available for purchase.

Nike probably registered it, but I like "Order has been restored." or as Coach K finally told them. "Good and Great"

"Just Be You" or "You Is Enough"?

"Golden Moment"

Given the history of this senior class, which had to endure the weight of disappointed expectations in March for three years, and the season-long skepticism of the mediots who cover college basketball as well as rival fans (until the team suddenly morphed into "Goliath" just before the title game), I'd call this painting...

"LAST LAUGH" ;)

I am wildly impressed with your work!

This is a far better work of art than the print of the 1978 team that I received as a graduation gift. You should really think about selling prints.

As far as naming it, I would tweak DevilHorse's response a bit "One Golden Moment".

"One Shinning Moment"

"The Improbable Dream"

"Amazing 2010 Devils"

This is an incredible piece of painting. If you are planning to make prints and sell it, please do add me to your list. I would love to hang one of those in my new loft.
Again, great art!!

Awesome stuff! I already have one of his works hanging in the house and didn't know it ("Duke Legends")

My immediate thought was that Gold needs to be worked in to your title somehow. My first reaction beyond, "damn that's really good" involved thoughts of gold.

I really like Fisheyes "One Golden Moment" suggestion. It's a good mix of One Shining Moment, which everyone associates with the tournament, and the first reaction I (and it looks like at least a couple others) had to the painting.

Great work. Now to check out your website...

Oh my God. This is genius. Your work should be hanging in a place where history is exhibited. Outstanding.

Coach K looks stoic. Which he is. That's the best rendering, real life or otherwise, I've ever seen of him.

Something as grand as this deserves a title that evokes both elegance and simplicity. Think Ludwig van Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

"Fourth"

My officer computer would not download your painting, so I have had to wait for eleven hours to see it at home. It is TERRIFIC, capturing personalities as well as the moment. Thank you so much for your artistry, effort and for sharing this with us.

I also think that something relating to "gold" needs to be in the title because of the color being incorporated into the picture. what a great piece of art!

If I had any money I would offer you a ridiculous price for that painting. You are a very talented human being. Excellent!

Title:
"Just be you, You is Enough"

"Fourth"

I like this one. I love the "Just be you" and "you is enough" quotes, but "Fourth" seems like a great title for a painting.

Amazing work, as everyone else said. That baby's a beaut.

What makes the painting so great is seeing the pure joy -- and relief -- on the faces of a group that has endured so much criticism and doubt from a nation of unbelievers. And that is no hyperbole. No one, outside of our community, of course, believed the 2010 Blue Devils could do this thing. But (with the help of a couple of Dre daggers, I might add) we did. Coach K's face is especially notable. I like to believe he's thinking, "This is for you, Greg. For you, Markie and J.J. Trajan, Steve, Chris and Johnny. History baby. Fourth.

Is there anyway this will ever be up for sale (via prints, of course)?

I will pay you whatever you ask. Seriously.

I like Stray Gator's suggestion. It's perfect.

I really like the painting... amazing. I also went to your website... the paintings are... amazing. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I just got my copy of the Duke Magazine... and they have an article of the NC in Cameron. I thought the title of the article was good... and for this painting too...

"Championship 4.0"

Great painting. How about "How sweet it is" to borrow from Bob Harris. Seems to capture the feel of the painting.

An absolutely amazing painting! Loved paging through your web site and the patrons' section is just wow :cool: !

There are several good name suggestions above. How about something incorporating K's "link" theme from the season, such as "The Link Prevails". Nah, I like "One Golden Moment", "#4" or "The Fourth" better.

Between your paintings and CameronBornAndBred's water colors, a new permanent display in the Nasher Museum is needed!

Absolutely love the paintings. Gorgeous artwork. I love that in the Duke Legends painting Shane doesn't have the basketball, Jason and Dunleavy are clearly shooting jumpshots, Wojo is bringing the ball up, Christian is shooting a freethrow. It's so clearly them.
Name? I like Championship 4.0 or Teamwork.

Absolutely wonderful work. You have beautifully have captured the essence of that moment. Wow.

I really like the "four" theme, also. For one of Coach K's favorite groups, how about, "A Team Four the Ages"?

Awesome painting. Words don't do it justice really.

As for a name: "Alarmingly Un-Athletic Champions":cool:

Duke Mom

My favorites among those already mentioned:

Nike's "Order Has Been Restored"

Ima's "The Gold Standard"

How about:

"Precious Mettle"

Good luck coming up with a title, let us know what you decide.

You are very talented - and it's amazing that you are self taught. What a gift!

hey guys,

thanks for the great ideas you all have come up with in regards to the naming of this painting. there are a number of them that I feel will be great for this painting. what I am thinking of doing is picking my favorite five names and having you all vote for your favorite. the winning name will be used for this painting. i am going to wait a couple more days, though to see if any new names come up. stay tuned!

btw... I just received an email from casey peters and kyle singler thanking me for commemorating their season "in such an incredible way". how awesome is that!
