Tom Noll’s “Un-Named” Frank Zappa Painting Gets a Name!
WE HAVE A WINNER!!
Well, what fun to put the title of my work into the hands of others. Thanks to everybody that joined in, and thanks to those who took advantage of the special intro pricing.
There were some great appropriate names submitted, and the one I choose, comes from Bob Clark of Milwaukee, WI, USA.
The simplicity of his name “Mutha” struck a chord with me.
In Bob’s words…
“This name might serve to restore some of Zappa’s original intent in naming his band the “Mothers” referencing the jazz idiom for great players. While the band officially named the Mothers of Invention did last only the first phase of his career, Zappa remained a “Mutha” of a guitar player, and always singularly inventive.”
Thanks Bob! You know how to reach me if you want to take advantage of my 1/2 price offer & put “Mutha on your wall.
Thanks again to all…

ORIGINAL CONTEST POST:
Returning for a FZ name!
With the busy holidays behind us, I want to revisit the painting I did recently that was never titled. One of my most highly requested paintings…the one and only…Frank Zappa!!!!
At the time of creation, I had alluded to a contest to name the painting, and a number of you have since asked if it was coming about. I’d now like to give people a chance to give it that perfect name. At the same time, I want to revert back to my original introductory price offer for print reproductions.
As true Zappa fans step up to give this a proper title, I will offer a limited edition print at half the price of the intro offer to the person who comes up with the name that best fits my creation. I’d like more than just a song title, but will entertain names that aptly portray the Frank Zappa that held our attention for 3 decades of diverse musical influences, and continues…to this day.
Prints during this contest will be intro priced at $239, plus $5 to ship ($12.50 international) If you’ve purchased one of the prints, and win with the best name, I’ll credit you half your funds back.
If you’d like to lock in the lowest print number, Email me, I’ll invoice you via paypal, and you’ll have yours in your hands shortly.
The contest, and intro price will end January 18th, and the winner will be announce the next day.
Good luck, keep an open mind, & have fun!
