Art in progress

I bought a blank canvas yesterday and attacked it with acrylics. My paint was kind of running out, so I let it dry overnight and then hung it up to stare at for a while. I'm not satisfied with the results yet, which is fine. My favorite part about working with paint is that you can always paint over. And over. And over. And the resulting layers build up cool textures on the canvas. But until I decide what I want to do with this particular abstract, it's hanging on the wall, waiting for inspiration to speak to me.

So this is an open call for artistic suggestions. What should I change? What should I keep?

but really folks. i'm like the worlds' worst artist. but on those lucky days, when it is so RELAXING to throw paint around on a canvas..well, sometimes they turn out like this and it makes me smile!

I love it. If I were going to suggest anything, it would be to play around with the orange "border" area. It feels too wide to me or something.... Just a thought. I'm so glad you're painting! One of these days I'm going to break out the old art supplies and go for it. One of these days.... ;)
