drawn drips

Before this morning, I had never really studied a dried-paint drip.  They're quite amazing when you take the time to really look.  The force with which a drop of paint falls creates spokes that radiate from the point of impact.  From there, tiny spots sometimes occur - spreading outward like skipping stones.  Have you ever seen slow-motion videos of drops splashing in liquid?  It's not unlike watching a ballet.
