Action Painting by Liz Iven
I have always dismissed painters like Jackson Pollock as a bad artist when it comes to paintings. I held this grudge against the splatter paint master for years. "Yuck! another Pollock Painting!" I decided to do more research on this artist I had denounced for so many years. Learning more about the artist and his paintings, made me appreciate his work more that I now understand the concept behind it. When it doubt of an Artist, Check them out. You might be shocked to find what new appreciation you'll have for them. In Response, here is my take on Action Painting. "Alright Pollock, your works not as bad as I once held them to be."
