If Jackson Pollock was around now

from w
If Jackson Pollock was around now I don't think he would be spattering paint and doing shoe-shuffle on his wall boards. Instead he would keep his feet clean, his clothes spotless, his studio neat and just use digital images perhaps with a computer and printer? But I don't think my Fake Pollocks would sell for $4 million do you? Has dribble art gone out of fashion these days and artists are back into figurative painting? I do think digital is one way to go to 'find' images and this is a cost-free way and no anxiety about allergies to paint. The pictures above came out by overlapping three pics of birds that I drew this morning. Now I'm just about pelicanned out and in need of coffee, biscuits and a basil connoction.

These are great - I especially like the blue, second from top, one. Of course JP would probably have assistants these days too.

Hello Alison,
Yes, the blue one is the best. How is your art-work going? I miss all those beaut sketches of domestic scenes around your city!

I like that blue one, too, but I am also taken with and surprised by the electric colors on the bottom one.
