Back in May I wrote a piece about Jackson Pollock, and his style of painting, and not being a great fan. But yesterday? Mr. Pollock hit the jackpot for one of his drip paintings. One of his paintings, the one shown here, got 140 million dollars in a personal transaction. Oh boy, like I said before, "where's my paintbox"? Now I'm going to make a run over to my local Sherwin Williams paint store and pick up a few gallons of various colors, a big tarp, and a canvas to drip it all onto. Whoa boy, I can see the bucks already.
