Paint like Jackson Pollock



Just go to jacksonpollock.org and paint to your heart's content. I did the example above with just my right handed mouse -- and I'm left handed!

It's so fun to do and all you have to do is press the space bar to clear the page and start over. Oh, and each time you click the mouse you get another paint color. The faster you move the mouse, the thinner the line. Stop and you get a big dot.

I "saved" my work by using a screen capture utility, but you may be able to do the same by pressing the "print screen" button which can be found on most standard keyboards above the "insert" key which is above the "delete" key on the keypad just to the right of the main one.

Comments about art lately have prompted me to share this. I'll work my bigger art post around in my head a while before committing it to posterity here. Give me a day or two to mull it over.

There is much to be said about artistic MSers adapting to their new limitations. I'll share some of my techniques and pointers for doing things and perhaps you will share yours in the comments.

Until then, have fun painting like Pollock. :-)
