That was fun...however, mine turned out quite disturbing on many levels, but i signed it anyways:



Here's a snippet of the original colors:



I wonder if drinking while cyber Pollock painting would help?

Jackson Pollock didn't paint while drunk. His best (and best-known) work was done during the years when he was sober.

Have you seen the movie on him? If you have, then you come away with the sense that alcohol and Jackson Pollock go hand in hand. Not that the movie was accurate, but still...

I'm not going to argue with you on that -- Pollock was a raging alcoholic. However, there were some periods in his life when he did NOT drink, and that was when he did his best-known work. That was never really explained in the movie, but it was in the book on which the film was based ("Jackson Pollock: An American Saga" by Naifeh and Smith).

The web site discussed in this thread is a great approximation of how Pollock did his drip paintings!

Still working on mine...

Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was.

Very nice, Mach!

I've submitted your piece to the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art in Amsterdam under the pseudonym of "Machson Haddock". They want to know if you can have eleven more paintings ready by November for the Winter Show. I told them you'd think about it.
