Captioning Your Art

Am I the only one that finds it difficult sometimes to come up with a great caption for my artwork?

How do you come up with a relative caption? Some captions I read have nothing to do with the image I’m looking at and that degrades the image in my eyes. When I see a bad caption it comes across like a cookbook with a horse racing book cover. When you first look at the book you think horse racing but when you open the book you see food. There’s nothing there pertaining to the initial content and it misleads the viewer/ reader.
How much thought do you put into your caption?
What’s your process for making your image caption?
What tips do you know to help the creative process of making a great caption?
