Report story

Local man Fredrick James has made the mistake of using a priceless painting by abstract artist Jackson Pollock to cover his floors while remodeling his newly purchased home. James found the large painting detached from it's frame in the attic of the house he recently bought not knowing the spectacular value and nature of the drop cloth's origins.

So far the painting has been used to catch paint from the ceiling and saw dust from a circular saw. The priceless painting was originally stolen from the Everhart Museum in Scranton Pa, and would have been worth approximately $1 million more that the total cost of James’s new fixer-upper home including the planned renovations which will include new pipes, appliances and a roof.

James was originally ecstatic that he did not have to purchase a new drop cloth for the work but when asked about the previously unseen Jackson Pollock signature in the corner he excused himself to the basement. Loud screaming was heard for several minutes before James returned upstairs and requested that reporters leave him alone.
