Jackson Pollock (1912 - 1956)
It's not your painting anymore. It stopped being your painting the moment that you finished it.
Jeff Melvoin, Northern Exposure, Fish Story, 1994
Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend.
A thoughtful quote for today. That's why I skillfully decline requests for portraits, You're safer with Abstract Art. Of course, if you have an aunt like mine, she may tell you "abstract art is the product of a confused mind."
