This is exciting...could be sky, sea, or even shifting sands.....  I used to love going to the art gallery in Toronto and just sitting and seeing what could be found if I just 'watched' a painting. No preconceived ideas, not looking for anything specific. Just watching and see what comes.
Cheers, Val

Thanks everyone, I had another person say that this reminded them of an etch-a-sketch. I does when you think about it.


I have three more going in the studio in oils at varying stages. The paint is so heavy I hate to use any driers. Oh well all we have is time.




Thank you again,  :painting:

Thanks for the kinds comments.  :hug:
Sorry, I find it a little difficult to write in English, becouse for that, I always do it very short. It's my first painting without copying an other painting. I start to paint for 4-5 months ago, and here in September I found Paint Basket, and now I have a feeling that I maybe will be able to learn it.
