Jackson Pollock And The Strange Saga of a Jafagirl Painting


abstract art
 My jafapal, Nancy, and I did this  back in 2006 when Nancy had her Getaways for Women and  created a fun Jackson Pollock workshop.  After posting it online (high res-BIG mistake-never NEVER again) it took off and somehow became attributed to Jackson Pollock, go figure! 
  Just doing a quick reverse image check up I found 247 results.
Many of the results lead to scraper sites/wallpaper sites that offer it for free downloading, and seriously you want risk downloading it?
Can you believe we cut the huge canvas up?   We were going to recycle the pieces into another jafagirl art project.
Still have parts of it around the house.

ANYWAY 
It seems many feel they can just freely grab images off the internet and use them however they pretty bloody well please (read here about copyright info). By the way ours was  NOT a copy of anything Jackson Pollock did.

Here are some of the sites using  our image thinking it's an actual pollock painting or abusing our copyright and  using it to promote an event, product, or make a profit from.
