Jackson Pollock

NOTE This blog was scheduled for the 28th of January, but it kept getting moved!!! Pretend its January 28th.

What does this animal blog have to do with Jackson Pollock?  For starters, its his birthday today  and for those of you who have never heard of him, he is well known for “drip” style painting.

Personally, I am not much of a fan of abstract art. I tend to like the more traditional Baroque style like Rembrandt.

Then I was reminded that we have some famous artists in our midst around the department who are the more abstract art type and would appreciate Pollocks birthday.

Franklin
Box Turtle “B”
Galileo

 

I have to say I would rather have a Franklin adorn my walls at home than a Pollock.

    I agree with you Jill, like the traditional stuff myself.
    And, along with you, I would much rather have a Franklin, BT “B,” or Galileo than a Pollock.
