Hey there! I'm sure y'all are all familiar with the modernist painter, Jackson Pollock. A few months ago, I went to see the Jackson Pollock exhibit here at The High Museum with my good friend, Caroline Inge and her boyfriend, Will. Always a fan of Pollock's work from images in books, I was not at all surprised to see how striking his paintings are when viewed large scale and in person. So armed with a bunch of leftover paint samples, a 4' x 8' board and an empty space above my sofa, I did a little backyard performance art. As it turns out, standing outside in the sunshine slinging paint towards a board propped up against the backside of a fence is a pretty enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. Plus, I love how much personality the painting adds to my room.
