After reading all the practical reasons why one SHOULD sign their work, I
am convinced that it is a good idea. However, now I'm scratching my head
over why this was never discussed in school (undergraduate or graduate,
painting major). Thanks for all the comments. I still can't find a place
to sign my finished work, though, I'm used to it the way it is!
