I will admit freely that I don’t really get the whole Abstract Expressionist school of painting. I find it chaotic, random, beautiful and mesmerizing all at once.
And I’m one of those people who’s desire to express myself artistically falls far short of my ability to do so. Which is why I really love JacksonPollock.org.
A unique homage to the famed artist, this flash-based website allows you to create your own Pollock-style images with nothing more than your mouse. It’s a lot cleaner than splashing and pouring paint on to a canvas on the floor!
