Jackson Pollack Postage Stamp
This is a Jackson Pollack 44 cents Postage Stamp.. It is funny how great minds work.. I had already bought the drop cloth, and paint at Home Depot. Stopped by the Post Office and there was a card from my good friend Peggy with this stamp..
Speaking of paint. There are the wonderful little sample containers of paint.. about $3.00 at Home Depot. Next to that display for .50 cents were some containers that people must not have liked the color... Perfect for what I wanted to do...I chose some of my acrylic paints that were getting a bit old..mixed a bit of water so that it would spatter, and painted....See below my style of wild exhilarating art.. Although I must say my back has seen a better day... Now for lunch!!!!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
