As many of you may know (because you too have seen the Google logo), today is Jackson Pollock's birthday.  You can read more about his art and his legacy here.  Since he is one of my all-time favorites, I thought I would share some pieces I think are his most exceptional.  

You can create your own Pollock-inspired piece here.  So fun!

Enjoy and Happy Wednesday!
