Waterstone Guitars embraces Jackson Pollock's art in guitar masterpiece

A beautiful guitar is a work of art.  From the first note that is picked, to the moving chord that is played, to the elegant shape of the guitar's body.

Waterstone Guitars, the brainchild of Robert Singer (very fitting name), views their guitars as a form of art.  To push their artistic envelope they have created a guitar based off the art of Jackson Pollock, a leader in the Abstract Expressionist movement. 

Pollock would place his blank canvas on the floor and use a "drip" technique where the paint would splatter on the canvas.  Waterstone guitars has captured this art technique in their latest limited edition guitars.  Proceeds from these collectors item guitar sales go to the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center which is Pollock and his wife, Lee Krasner's, home turned museum.  Pollock's original studio art is still on display in the house.

Waterstone Guitars is helping to continue the legend, life, and art of Jackson Pollock.  This guitar masterpiece can be found at http://pollockguitar.com.  Well done!


And that's what's good,

How did they find out who to say these sweet words in so many languages?  They originally collated all of the phrases by going to many different embassies and asking their neighbors and soon enough they had over 300 ways of saying those words that make your heart lift.

"Nian'-ni-né-sné-i-kou-nou." is another way to say "I love you".  I'm not sure what language that is, but if you say something that long, then you must really mean it!
