David Kanigan: Inspiration, Ideas & Information
The Pollock canvas may be worth millions… but Rachel’s pumpkin is priceless!
Smiling. EXACTLY Ed, you nailed it. Thank you. I can see her heart swelling already.
Good advice from father to son.
Yes, exceptional advice.
I am totally loving Rachel’s pumpkin! I stared at that far longer than the Pollock – it’s gorgeous.
Laughing. Me too. Now to monetize the pumpkin like Pollock does with his splashes.
I, too, am throwin’ in with Rachel’s pumpkin–it’s inspired!
Smiling. It is an inspired pumpkin!
I vote for Rachel!
That is the coolest pumpkin ever. I love it!
Isn’t it though!
i’m loving the letter! …
Me too. And especially like how he closes: “Affectionate Father”
If you get a chance, you should watch “Pollock” with Ed Harris…excellent film..but Rachel’s pumpkin is much more inspirational….
I’ll check it out Jeff. Thanks for pointing me too it…
Jackson Pollock discovered something about painting and art that takes a bit of study to appreciate. Standing in front of one of the large drip paintings — #7 at MOMA — has been one of the most impressive experiences I’ve had in art. His work continues to have enormous impact on the art world and the other one — the world we live in.
Frank, I’ve not seen his work at MOMA and from the sounds of your experience, it is worthy of exploration. Thanks for sharing and pointing me to it.
His father’s advice was soooo good. Must have helped him achieve. Of course he came to a bad end and was kind of a shit in the way he lived his life. I wonder why.
Yes, I loved his letter to his son. Wonderful.
I love your daughter’s work, her pumpkin is gorgeous. And your sentiment to her…priceless.
Thank you Bonnie…
Wow…loved the pictures but I totally missed that it was a pumpkin when first looking. That is amazing! Great work Rachel. The letter is great. Wish I had a greater appreciation for all that when I was younger. Happiness & joy seemed so much easier then.
Yes, agree on the letter and a better appreciation during our younger days. That being said, no time like the present to catch up.
Dave, this is fabulous. Go Rachel! She paints a beautifully as she writes. She and I are on the same team with JP. I can remember vividly the first time I looked upon Pollock’s Autumn Colors at MOMA. I was transfixed. Sat there for over an hour. Interestingly, Jill hated it. She told me, “This upsets me and I hope you will never bring anything like it in our house, ever.” Just goes to show how art moves some in opposite directions, and a sad segment in no way at all. I keep a few prints ripped out of a calendar tacked on the wall near my fishing gear and smelly outdoor clothes, where I know she will leave them alone. Stay safe from the storm.
Smiling. I might add to your thoughtful comment that our own personal tastes change over time. I wouldn’t have given Pollock 2 seconds 15 years ago. Today, I might be sitting next to you on the bench transfixed. Hope you are doing well Len.
