What do you name these paintings?

Dragons Den 16x20 oil
What do you name these pieces? After a while I just run out of titles. I guess I should give them more thought but sometime I just run out of ideas.

Crested Butte Plein Air Invitational

Mnt Crested Butte 16x12 oil 
Morning Coffee 11x14 oil - didn't have time to get into the show
CB Alley 24x12 oil - this is the quick draw on Sat Morning of the CBP. Lots of good response on this one. 
The Crested Butte show was the most fun you can have. I got to paint and help put up the walls and the paintings for the show. Met lots of friends and made some new acquaintances and saw some top quality art. Man am I gonna have to work harder. Stayed with David Grossman and Chris Morel at the condo. Both wonderful people.
