This morning, a friend alerted us to the great flash site jacksonpollock.org where you can make your own Pollockesque action paintings with clicks and whorls of your mouse. We found it strangely relaxing, like some high-brow video game; it took our mind totally OFF what we’ve been worrying about to follow (our own) unexpectedly wild movement of color on the screen.

When you arrive at jacksonpollock.org, just click on the door to wander through into the world of your inner Pollock:


There’s also an i-pad app made without flash.

With thanks to Lisa Morphew of Yancey Craft Tile.
