This "action painting" by Jackson Pollock seemed like a good inspiration for the busy holiday season and a reflection of the way that the unlikely color of silver has quietly infiltrated the every day style scene.
Cathedral is one of Jackson Pollock's first "drip paintings," using enamel and aluminum paint on canvas. Jackson Pollock, who Time Magazine called "Jack the Dripper" for his paintings made pouring house paint on unstretched canvas and using sticks, trowels and knives instead of the traditional paint brush and easel, rose to incredible fame as one of the major figures in the abstract expressionist movement. He signed a gallery contract with Peggy Guggenheim, married Lee Krasner, an influential abstract expressionist painter and won the support of art critic Clement Greenberg, who felt that Jackson Pollock was the finest painter America had ever produced.

Would you wear silver during the day and how do you feel about Jackson Pollock's drip paintings?
