Weekend Assignment: Art for Art's Sake
Time for the Weekend Assignment, and this week, Blogmeister Scalzi is getting all artistic on us:
Weekend Assignment #50: Tell us about an artwork -- painting, sculpture or other visual work -- which had a significant impact on you. Note this doesn't have to be your "favorite" piece of art, or the one you like the most (although it can be, if you want): He's looking for the work that made you think, or affected you in an unexpected way.
Extra Credit: Assuming money was no object, how much would you spend on a piece of art?
Extra Credit first: The idea is to spend as little as possible and have what you've purchased become worth millions.
So nothing over $1000. $100 is even better.
ARTWORK THAT HAD A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON ME:
There isn't enough space for all the pictures I want to post. So go to Google. Click on Images. Type in Jackson Pollack. Pick anything he ever painted.
When I read all the fuss about his work and then saw it, I said, "If he can paint. Anyone can paint." And that's a good thing. It means that we all have the ability. Some people, and you can include Picasso in this bunch, just have better marketing.
