Doodling away...

Akelamalu tagged me to do a Jackson Pollock doodle.

So I decided to give it the Cream treatment and turn out something complicated. Only because I have a very complicated mind.
I will not tag anyone but go on have half an hour of fun.

When you've finished your masterpiece, print the screen then paste it on a painting program. I messed about with mine then uploaded it.

Can you see what it represents?

HINT: I think it comes from my student days.

I feel so brilliant. One glance and I said "Cream does Pollock" before reading the text. I will NOT check out that link because experience has taught me that I can lose hours from my life after one unguarded link check!

Akelamalu, looks like one.

Queenie, you are absolument right!

Andrea, I had never seen Pollock's art until this morning. You are fast!

Whoops!is that a spelling mistake cream??? I know you've done that just to make me feel better (haven't you?).

Yes, Hayden, sailing into the horizon...

Queenie, Actuellement, it was to show off that I can spell in French...
You see, I love foreign lingoes...

Heh, yes, Cream does Pollock. With a difference.

It's all them boats out there that you pass while walking, eh?

Are you going sailing soon, Cream?

Oh yes, I see you and your family sailing the high seas to visit me and my family in Morocco.:-)

Gigi, it was real fun doing it. Being an ex-Naval Arch student, I love "to be beside the sea!"
No, not sailing away yet. Too busy at the mo.

One day, Maryam, one day... I promise.

Alors là !! C’est du grand art, Je vois une bataille navale par beau temps, au Paintball bien sure !
Mais je ne distingue pas le pavillon ! Ils ont du s’en donner à cœur joie les pirates ;

I agree with Queenie - though probably it's in the middle of a storm?

This is a blatantly bittersweet piece...

You are sailing off into the distance while in the foreground, a visibly forlorn Olive Oyl, in purple silhouette, sits in her dingy and hangs her head in despair.

Bataille navale au Paintball, Monsieur Dip-Dop! Cela serait très intéressant! Pouvez-vous imaginer Waterloo au Paintball? Un arc-en-ciel géant!

Bella, I love your imagination.

HE, I have just noticed poor Olive.
But is that a sperm coming out of her forehead straight into a yellow egg...

Read your foreign lingoes..... where you were tagged. Interessante! (hah - showing off too! ;-)

Are you sure, Bee? They're only doodles. That would be cheating.

Bella, yes showing off, mucho, mucho!

Phoenician ship setting sails, ready to explore beyond the Mediterranean Sea, passing Gibraltar, and, oh yes, toward that great Island in that other sea!
Pollock yes, but minimalist, more artful blobs out of a ketchup bottle than whole pails. And then, what do I know. I like it, though. :-)

Val, it was fun doing it. A two-minute job.

Merisi, I wish that was it because I would be on that ship but back into the Med.

Love love that comment by dip-dop-crabtree! Paintball, yesh! My son's cloth, afterwards, looked like that, only less artistically placed splatters. *chuckle*

Is it washable paint?
I went painballing once but walked into a tree on the word "Go!" That was it for me. Out of the battle.

Dr. Freud speaking?
As far as the paint ball colors are concerned, no, I don't think they wash out, that's the reason why, at least in the US, you get a special suit when you play.
