The abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock (1912-1956), left an indelible mark on the mid-century art world, and many would assert his work was the antithesis of the Patio Culture. But before you go off with a condescending critical grin, just consider those poor suburban dads who toiled away for hours, painting their 2 bedroom ranch style homes. While the house would inevitable sport a fresh coat of lime green or beige, it was the drop cloth that often displayed the compiled remnants of home improvement painting projects of all kinds. For dads, their “drip period” was from sun up on Saturday morning until Miller Time.

Now you too can be a Jackson Pollock. This nifty little Flash app at www.jacksonpollock.org will turn your mouse into paint can and hours of modernist fun are yours to have! Don’t forget to clean up when you’re done.
