Color possesses me....


I adore Jackson Pollock. 
I also adore my Jackson Pollock inspired high-waisted skirt, which is from Francesa´s.
I combined it with a simple white tank top from Guess and my blue stilettos, which I bought at Zara years ago when I still lived in Spain.
I accessorized my outfit with a gold vintage chain necklace, which I found at Sale Rack - my favorite store in Coconut Grove. My bright yellow vintage clutch made by Calderon, I found on Etzy.com.

And since I still couldn´t get enough of colors, I painted lips and toenails in hotpink as well:)

Jackson Pollock was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. During his lifetime, Pollock enjoyed considerable fame and notoriety. He was regarded as a mostly reclusive artist. 
Pollock's most famous paintings were made during the "drip period" between 1947 and 1950, which is why he was also called "Jack the Dripper".

I adore Pollock, because I can somehow relate to his way of painting when I paint myself. 
Painting is very emotional for me. It comes from my feelings deep inside and it takes its own odd ways.
The modern artist is working and expressing an inner world - in other words - expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces. The painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through. ~ Jackson Pollock
