Guitar Doggy And Me In Wine Country

Actually this painting was created inside my head for a long time. I really saw the picture with my minds eye. Finally, I painted it on canvas while I was listening Don McLean's "Starry, Starry Night" Vincent (song) over and over. The result that came out was nice, of course it has the Van Gogh feeling for sure. But this was the first time I was stuck with naming my own painting, what should I title it?

Glad that I have this artist community to ask..
In such a short time, there were many great ideas suggested.

Siesta, Intermezzo, Guitar Break, Melody of Dreams A Perfect Day, All Played Out, Passing Time, dreams of Van Gogh, Perfect Ending , Little Dogie With Shades, Dog Day Melody, While My Guitar Gently Weeps , Six Strings, Four Feet and Sweet Dreams, A Cowboy's Melody, The end of the howling blues, All we need, California Dream Interlude, The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Howling, The Sun's Comin' Down On Me, On The Road Again, Acoustic Aphasia, Cool Doggie Blues, ..

There were even more suggestions than that, but I don't want to repeat similar ones. Many thanks to each one of my creative artist friends. It helped me with a title for my painting and to learn some new words in English as well!

After a couple of days deliberation I had come to a decision. In the end, I fell in love with the poem Artist Lutz Baar wrote for this painting:

"Purple light in the canyons
That's where I long to be
With my three good companions
Just my guitar, doggy and me."

And also the background was impressed by Napa Valley scene, so I finally name my painting "Guitar Doggie and Me in Wine Country" - give to my credit to all my creative artist friends and especially Lutz Baar for the beautiful poem!

FYI, here is the link of the thread for the title suggestion:
