if you can't be good, be gone

  I have probably painted 200-300 roosters or chickens over the fifteen years that I have been painting.   So how do you constantly come up with new titles for the pieces? I usually listen to music while I am painting so I will use a lyric or title of a song I find appropriate. I was listening to the Mandolin Orange station on Pandora and I felt like the Steeldrivers song, "if you can't be good, be gone" worked.  The name of the bands is always interesting.  One band that plays on this station is "trampled by turtles".  
This painting is painted on a 24 x 30 x 2" canvas.
