The Acrobats

Hello everyone. So nice to find an active forum with pastelist like myself. My name is Sherina and I'm self-taught. I've tried other mediums but I was the most comfortable with pastels because Ilike using my fingers. The image I'm trying to upload is titled the Acrobats and measures 32 x 40. Though you can't tell, the black squares are actually 1 inch glass mirrors and the black dots/button-like things you see are colored rhinestones. I'm thinking about a solo art exhibit in late spring and I'm having trouble coming up with a name for the theme of the show. My work is described as contemporary abstract expressionism. I just wanted to ask if anyone has any ideas? I came up with Passionate about pastels, but it doesn't seem to have any kind of ring to it. Thank you in advance.

This is very nice.  I lkie the compostion, colors and the idea of the mirrors and  rhinestones.  I would like to see this with lights shining on it.  Sorry, I don'y have a name for you at this time.
