** not that I would ever put myself in a class of painter as Pollock or Picasso but we most certainly draw our passion, peace and longing from the same places.

    • Good point and valid statement I just got tired of people saying oh it looks like a pollock. Which of coarse is flattering, but I’m not pollock I’m Prewitt. Close but I’m still alive.

    • Let me rephrase I don’t wish to be know as a painter by any other name than my own, although I have done some Miro and pollock pastiche using the same techniques as those painters. They are just additions to my own body of work.

  2. Great post and I can see the similarities in your work ~ thank you and now I understand. You live in your paintings.

    I enjoyed the clip, whipping that paint around, the dog sitting off to the side and the love of smoking as he tosses the cigarette onto the ground – how times have changed and stayed the same.

    I get Pollock’s thoughts and when a piece I’m painting is really coming along, I end up physically and mentally connecting with it. Makes sense?

    • Absolutely makes sense to me, I get involved and completely lose track of everything. I’ve mentioned it in previous posts but I often feel that the paint and I have a relationship, it’s strange I know but very much how I feel. I certainly have a connection to what I do.
