The SA connection and the Case of the MOMA art thief! A Jackson Pollock by cheryl Penn

And so, a small piece of one of my bloved Pollock paintings has found it way

to Greece, and now occupying an honored place along with a certain ninja yelling from Japan!

Yes, it REALLY looks like a Jackson, doesn't it? And it is double-sided...I never

knew that Pollock worked on both sides of the panels, boards, canvasses.:

Side One:

Side Two:

Amazing textures that these photos cannot capture. You have to see it

and hold it, to know what a great work ...portion of a great work...of ART this is!

and, yes, it really, really, really looks like a Pollock....because IT IS!

I have the documents to prove it:

Many thanks, Cheryl! It is a great piece and I will treasure it!

Me thinks he helped cut-up the Pollock! And if it would still be intack, we'd be the poorer for it!

Now I have a special piece...thank you Cheryl!

If Marie's angry young man (and his army) had been here in the first place, maybe the Pollock would still be intact!!! I can just hear him screeching :-))

I got one too- and it made me laugh and laugh!  It is haptic too- the impasto is so thick.  Thank you Cheryl!  I like how Marie's Angry Hole-Fellow is guarding it too.

Oh, great, and I'm truly honored to be right beside that precious Pollock! :-))

Are you saying , Cheryl, that this is "left-overs" from days gone by?

 Send more...I LOVE left-overs! ;-)

My son was here when I opened it, and he said:"Mom, that's a Pollock!"

Cheryl is GOOD...really good! It is paint in relief and wondrous to the touch!
