This painting was my dad's idea... he came up to me one day grinning, and said "Pollock" then looked at me like "get it? Pollock?" Then handed me a piece of paper he had printed from the computer with a picture of a fish on it. Being a vegetarian and not much of a fish enthusiast, I had no clue what he was talking about.
After he explained it, I resisted the idea for a while before finally caving in and painting it as a surprise for him one day. Much to my surprise, I liked how it came out.
But because of my initial resistance, it is now an inside joke. Whenever I sell a Pollock print at a show, I just glance at my dad, who more often than not will have a very smug, confident grin on his face.
