"Apples and Jars"

I can't think of a good name for this one. I want to name it something like "house of mirrors" or "fun house". But neither seem to sound right. Help me out...(Next Day) Thanks Julian. Just to get things straight, the two apples are directly behind the jars filled with water, but they kind of do look like they are inside.

Hi Aaron,

What about simply 'Apples and Jars'? I know that when you've used the same motif a few times it can get a bit complicated; 'Apples and Jars #2'etc. but simple is often effective with titles as with paintings. I also find the Chardin style of titles useful (a good fallback): "Still life with Apples and Jars on a green cloth". It's difficult enough being inventive with the paintings!

How about "Uptight" that is how I felt when I first saw the fruit in the jars...but then I am claustrophobic!!! Have a good day!
NICE WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
