The Famous Fly in Abstract Art

When painting abstract art, there's no telling what's going to end up on the canvas. Violent splashes with the paintbrush could leave bristles sticking to the canvas and paint splatters can send drips and drops flying all over the place. The best thing to do when something unexpected comes up: GO WITH IT. Which is exactly what Jackson Pollock did while painting "One: Number 31, 1950". While sloshing colors onto the giant canvas, an unfortunate fly got doused with black paint; making it a permanent part of his painting. As for us, we try to be a little more fly-friendly when it comes to making the Artreka abstract art.
