If Jackson Pollock was happy

These are 12 x 24 panels. After seeing "Jackson Pollock" movie, the Hollywood version. I had a discussion on facebook with artist and non-artists about Pollock. This is what prompted this painting. I used no brushes in Pollock style... I have not seen the true documentary. I guess I'm too pop culture and shouldn't admit it on my artist blog. I had a lot of fun doing this but it was very messy. I did it on the floor of my garage. I hope you enjoy the humor. I tried to use some brighter colors.

Little Man Scuba

This painting is 6 x 12 Oil on Canvas. Maybe because it's so hot here in Texas, I've been drawn to kids in the pool pictures. This is the son of my college room mate and longtime friend. She lovingly refers to her son as "the little man" which inspired the title. I've also been drawn to the long canvas. I like it because it's a little different.

Face Painter

This painting is 16 x 8 and oil on panel. I took the photo in Portland at the Saturday Artist Market. It was interesting and I knew it would be a bit of a challenge. I've been working on it off and on. I may work on it some more but for now I want to sit with it.

Portland Chairs

This painting is 8 x 16 Oil on Panel. I took the photo at a sunflower farm in Oregon while visiting dear friends. I will always think of our trip to Portland when I look at it.
