Does it take any actual artistic talent to slosh paint onto a canvas seemingly at random? Was Jackson Pollock a genius or just a weirdo? In an attempt to find the answers, I created a large square full of frenetic, colorful brush strokes, with no end goal whatsoever. Employing almost none of the skills I use when I create a portrait, I instead painted by natural instinct and intuition ... a very different, but freeing feeling. It ended up looking kind of cool, but more than that, it opened my eyes to the abstract genre. And I now feel I have another tool in the ol' art arsenal, which is always good. Thing is, it still wasn't complete ... I liked my square of random shapes and colors, but it's not my style, and would seem like a cheap sell-out move for me to put this out there as is. I had to do my version of abstract ... hence, "The Plaid Dove" (Version 1). This may not be "purely" abstract - whatever that might mean - but it's me, it's Plaid Design, it's Mod Pop Art. More about the dove itself in the description of Version 2 ...
