SDC180 Oh pollocks!!
when I saw what this weeks challenge was all about on the Stampotique Designers Blog I couldn't wait to take part!! the amazingly talented Corrie is the hostess this week and she challenges us to use paint in our background. .....Well.... my mind went to one of my favourite artists...JACKSON POLLOCK. He is famous for his abstract art which is basically splattering paint onto canvas, I know this sounds just like childs play, but to balance it takes a good eye, anyway , I adore his work, and one of his favourite quotes, which I may use in the future is.... " Every good artist paints what he is" !!!!!! .. well, I tell you what I am....too careful, scared of mistakes, need perfection!!!! so when I see Pollock's work, I just wish I was that free, it must be an amazing feeling. I have to say though that when I was creating this background, I had a ball.... until I looked up and saw my beautiful wallpaper, black with silver chandaliers on...AND LOTS OF COLOURED SPLATTERS!!!! gulp!!!
