Number 1, 1950 (Lavender Mist)

Number 1, 1950 (Lavender Mist) by Jackson Pollock.  In 1947 Jackson Pollock introduced a radically innovative method of painting in which he poured paint directly onto unprimed canvas that he tacked to the studio floor. His process, which was filmed in 1950 by the photographer Hans Namuth, was spontaneous and intuitive, Pollock exercised remarkable control over it and insisted, "there is no accident."  I love his work and in no way something anybody can do. A lot people say they can, but this something done by a special person. 

Here is a video of him painting:
