The Riomaggiore Painting

The Riomaggiore painting is taking longer than I had hoped, I started the painting year 2016, then parked it in the "to do later closet", and recently I decided to work on it again. 

Riomaggiore painting in progress

I normally paint on one painting at a time, but when I need change of scenery, I simultaneously started on a new painting of the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge, easily identified by its orange color.

Should I sign a painting with my married name or maiden name.

How to tell people that I have two different name, "why are they confused over here".

I kept my maiden name when I got married. And all it does is confuses people in the United States, so I use my married name here, for and for my business I use my maiden name, so to speak I have two different name!

In some countries like Italy or Spain, it is traditional for women to keep their family name, and even when a woman decides to use her husband's last name she can't relinquish her own and will continue to use it in official documents, ID cards, passports etc. for the rest of her life.

Should I sign my painting with my maiden name or married name? 

I personally prefer to sign all my paintings with  my maiden name.

I use my maiden name "Dominici" with the word "studios", my business name is "Dominici Studios".

Crystal Cove Coastline Painting by Teresa Dominici

Crystal Cove is a seaside cottage colony that began its story back in the early 1920s, when Hollywood used it as a set for movies such as Treasure Island, along with Sea Wolf, Storm-swept and Sadie Thompson. 

Even though the coastline was barely known back in the 1900s, by mid-century it has been discovered by  filmmakers and became one of the spot shoot locations.
